|Rank / Title||Second Lieutenant|

Sakura in Other Media
She has a significant role with some dialogue in Toji's scenario in the Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases video game.
In Rebuild of Evangelion
She wasn't given a name until the 3rd movie, Evangelion 3.0.
Following the second film, her role is expanded significantly. During the events of Evangelion 3.0, she's one of the first people to greet Shinji Ikari after he was recovered from Eva-01. Unlike the rest of the Wille organization, she didn't treat him with any disdain. She holds the rank of Second Lieutenant with Wille and is a medical officer, on board the AAA Wunder, assigned to Shinji during his stay in the ship. She makes no attempt to stop him from escaping with Rei, but warns him not to get into the Evangelion again.
While 'Sakura' (Cherry Blossom) is a perfectly legitimate female name in Japan, she may have been named after the Matsu-class destroyer Sakura of the old Imperial Navy (which in turn was named after the tree). It remains to be seen whether the choice of 'Sakura' as a given name was inspired by the warship as in case of so many of Evangelion's characters or whether the choice of name is purely coincidental.
