Sakaki (榊さん, Sakaki-san; referred to as "Miss Sakaki" in the English dub) is one of the main characters from Azumanga Daioh. She is unusually tall at 174 centimeters (about 5'9") and has larger-than-average breasts, making many of the other girls, especially Kaorin, envious of her. Her homeroom teacher Yukari Tanizaki considers Sakaki a valuable asset in her eternal rivalry with fellow teacher Minamo Kurosawa, whose student Kagura is equally athletic. Despite all her admiration, Sakaki is very withdrawn and rarely speaks. She loves cats, yet she cannot own one due to her parents' allergies, so she collects and makes her own stuffed animals. She is often seen petting Tadakichi, Chiyo Mihama's Great White Pyrenees.
