‘A woman admired for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities’

‘the chief female character in a book, play, or film who is typically identified with good qualities and with whom readers are expected to sympathize with.’

Sakura appears in more than 300 chapters of the manga making her the most recurring female character in  the series.

Now pray tell me, where is it written than the main heroine is always the heroes love interest??

all the categories of a heroine fits Sakura’s description proving that:

SAKURA IS THE MAIN HEROINE OF THE SHOW!!! NOT HINATA, NOT INO, NOT TEMARI AND NOT TENETEN.

But that does NOT make the other female characters insignificant. They are important to the story in their own way.They are all heroines on their own.They all fit the categories of being a heroine. BUT they are Not the MAIN heroine as they don’t appear as much. That spot is for Sakura only.
