Akari Sakura (桜あかり; Sakura Akari) is the human partner of Labra and Ruby in Jewelpet Tinkle.
AppearanceEditAkari has shoulder-length, brown hair and round, green eyes. She ties her hair into a high-side ponytail with pink and white ribbons. Her usual outfit consists of a pink jacket over a plain, white shirt. She wears a light blue skirt with white ankle socks and pink and white runners. Her outfit also includes a brown belt accessorized with her Jewel Charm. When entering an important part of the Magic Academy, Akari wears a light-pink cape decorated with a crescent moon that can be summoned by Halite's spell. Miria states that the cape is like the school's uniform.
Akari is usually shy, quiet and she often gets embarrassed easily around her classmates and long-time crush, Yuuma Jinnai. She is actually really friendly and was able to get along with Miria and Sara very well. One of Akari's many dreams is to draw manga and she usually scribbles drawings in her notebooks, she is also trying to live up to her beautiful and talented sister, Monica Sakura which is the main reason she has trouble making friends in school.
Though she carries many dreams, she already gave up on all of them including to win the Jewel Star Grand Prix and instead, cheered on the dreams of the people around her. However, Akari started to have faith in her own self after she entered the Magic Academy and met people that were just like her, but worked much harder to achieve their own dreams. After realizing that everyone and even her own sister has their own problems, Akari started to work harder towards her dreams and became a girl who believed anything was possible if she tried.
Akari Sakura is an aspiring manga artist and a student of the Winston Academy as well as the younger sister of Monica Sakura, a famous teen and the student council president in middle school. She's bright, gentle, shy, often embarrassed, and lives with her parents. Her dad is a shipbuilding architect while her mom is the chief editor at a magazine. Because of her older sister's popularity, Akari developed an inferiority complex and jealousy to her sister. She first met Ruby on the beach when waiting for the bus. At first, Akari thought Ruby couldn't understand her, but as they got to know each other, Ruby begins to understand how hard Akari's life is and how sad and miserable she can be. Akari later realizes that the feelings of her heart matches Ruby's after a Jewel Charm appears on her hand. She then enters the Magic Academy and becomes a student there, with Ruby as her partner. Akari has goals to win the championship with Ruby in the Jewel Star Grand Prix and to earn the title of being a Jewel Star, though she has a lot of competition for that. Her wishes are to be with Yuuma and to be a famous manga artist. She is very friendly and eventually become friend with Miria, Sara, Leon and Nicola.
Akari has a huge crush on Yuuma, her classmate, whom she met in elementary school. She is extremely shy around him that she can barely have a decent conversation with him. However, she finally confesses to him that she likes him and wants to be the perfect girl for him. In the next several episodes, their relationship is uncertain since she has yet to hear his reply. They became closer when he learns about the Jewelpets and helps her in situations. On Valentine's Day, he finally confesses his love to her, and by the final episode, it is presumed that they are a couple as in the opening song of the ova, we see that Akari and Yuuma are holding hands and we can see, or guess, that they are on a date at a festival.
Akari also shared a special bond with Yuma's twin sister, Alma. At first, Akari mistakens that Alma is the alter ego of Yuma due to Alma being in disguise as a boy. After learning the past of Alma and her plan, Akari tried to persuade her to let up of her hatred, but to no avail. In Episode 51, seeing Alma suffered due to the evil magic of Battest, Akari decided to take on the evil magic herself so that Alma would be free from the influence of the evil magic, with the price of she being pulled into the coldness and loneliness of the magic. This finally opened the heart of Alma, who enchanted the spell of happiness to purge her and the Jewelland of the evil magic. In the end, she attended the same middle-school as Akari and Yuma, and has started a new life in Human World. She also used the happiness spell to wakeup Lady Fealina. She wanted to disappear
Unlike the other magicians in Jewel Land, Akari's magic reach it's full potential when she has someone or something she must protect. Her magic amplified by Labra, allowing herself to use magic other magicians cannot.

She uses Jewel Flash when she feels the need to protect something, otherwise she uses it for the Jewel Star Grand Prix.
