They are a fickle character that is sour and physically antagonistic in one instant but is reluctantly sweet and innocent in the next. They are often used to create interesting character dynamics for romance series if not, at least, that one "spunky" character in every anime that always gives the main character the business. It's a give-or-take concept as anime fans are either totally in love with the concept or in abject hatred of it. One would be hard pressed to find anyone that says Sakura is their favorite character, let alone even likes her.

While fans were curious initially if Naruto would eventually get his girl, they got immensely less curious as Sakura never contributed that much depth or redeeming quality to even make herself a memorable character. To be fair, Asuka does get quite a bit of hate.
