Description: Sakura Kasugano (春日野 さくら Kasugano Sakura?) is a video game character from the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter Alpha 2. She is a Japanese schoolgirl with an intense fixation on Ryu, having copied and learned many of his techniques, and chasing him around the world to prove herself to him.
After their first fight in Sakura Ganbaru!´, both women have sparked a rivalry because of Karin’s first loss in a long lasting winning streak. However once Karin won their rivalry match in Street Fighter Alpha 3 she admitted that Sakura is indeed better than her and that she only won by luck. After that, they became close friends as well as continuing their friendly rivalry, which is noticeable in one of her win quotes in Super Street Fighter IV and all other interactions with her despite having completely opposite personalities.
