THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
I'm Sakura Muramatsu, 15 years old! I thought it would be nice to make everyone smile, so I came along with my friends!
Sakura is the Cute representative of the New Wave trio. Sakura is the sweet, fun-loving spirit that serves as the heart of her unit. She has a speech style where she stretches out words and uses "super" a lot. Her favorite color is pink, but on-stage she normally wears red for the sake of completing the primary colors with her friends, Ako Tsuchiya and Izumi Ohishi. The trio is very close, almost never seen without the other members. Sakura’s idol stage clothes always coordinate with Ako and Izumi’s, and her cards are set up to work best with the other New Wave members. Later cards, however, show her to be more independent. She usually wears a single, large bow or headbands with bows attached, much in the same fashion of Haruka with her double bows.
In the tie-in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Sakura is particularly close to Ako due to them both being very childlike. She likes to wear dresses and enjoys playing with Momoka’s dogs. Sakura tends to get distracted easily, as she lets her pastries burn when practicing for a singing and baking simultaneous job. When she lost to Izumi in Hanetsuki, she had her face painted to match Mirei’s eye patch. For some reason, Yukari holds Sakura saying that she’d make dinner to be good advice for performing at live events. Since Sakura is the shortest of New Wave, Izumi and Ako often look after and protect her, much to the point that both pat Sakura's head at times. This somehow also extends to Michiru and Kana, members of Scherzo Primavera (another one of Sakura's units), where they are amused by Sakura's cuteness after the water Michiru splashed at her got inside her left eye.
Sakura loves being with Izumi and Ako, to the point of wanting to live with them. When her two friends try to convince her of what parts of her character to flesh out when going solo, they simply point out that Sakura tends to be cute no matter what she tries. She eventually accepts that and decides to keep it as her selling point.

|Sakura : Sakura here! It makes me happy to know that you have sent a lot of letters! So, it's time to answer them~! Let's go!|
|Question: You are always cute, Sakura-chan, but what is the secret to your cuteness?|
|Sakura : Thank you for those words. My secret is that I am always smiling! #DereMail|
|Question: If you have a little sister or a little brother, what kind of big sister do you think you will be to them?|
|Sakura : I think I will be a responsible big sister! I would like to pat their heads and dote on them. #DereMail|
|Question: I get a lot of energy and motivation by seeing the ever so cute Sakura-chan! Thank you so much for that!|
|Question: I'm not really good at making conversation and I haven't really gotten used to the people in my class. I would like to get along with people like you do, Sakura-chan, so what thing should I do first to achieve that?|
|Sakura : First, you have to smile! That'll be fine even if you can't make conversations.|
|Sakura : If you smile a lot, I think you'll be able to become friends with your classmates! After all, being around a person who smiles is nice.|
|Question: Good evening, Sakura-chan. There's something I'd like to ask you.|
|Question: You mentioned before about your father being family-oriented and your mom being relatively stricter. So, was there like a special episode or memory you could share? I would like to hear more about your family!|
|Sakura : That one time, Papa made a sunny-side up and it was so delicious! The salad alo had a lot of tomatoes in it. #DereMail|
|Sakura : We were really enjoying the meal and taking our time to savor them. Then Mama got angry since we were about to get late.|
|Sakura : Still, she was so nice seeing that she already had prepared our socks and shoes. Ehehe|
|Sakura : Wait. That doesn't sound like a special memory, right? Ehehe|
|Sakura : We'll be waiting for more of your letters! And we'll answer more again!|
