Sakuya Tachibana is a character introduced in God Eater Burst. Later named as Sakuya Amamiya in God Eater 2. She is a veteran sniper.


God Eater Burst

Through the game, Sakuya plays the role of support in and out of combat. She is very emotional when it comes to the subject of Lindow; she is openly distraught when he goes missing and constantly worries (though this doesn't affect her combat ability), while when evidence points to his status as alive, she expresses joy and hope. It can be said she overreacts slightly when such evidence is presented.

God Eater 2

Three years after Sakuya's marriage to Lindow, her name has changed into Sakuya Amamiya. Sakuya and Lindow have a child named Ren. Although she doesn't appear in the game itself, in God Eater 2 Rage Burst, she is listed in the NORN, which says that she is on maternity leave, but a lot have been wanting her to come back to the front lines. However, the higher-ups recommended her to come back as a supervisor instead.

God Eater Resonant Ops

4 years after the events of God Eater 2 Rage BurstSakuya's appearance becomes more mature, and appears to be taller as well. While her overall color scheme and style remains exact, and less exposure. She replaced her shorts with black leggings and her Cradle jacket is wrapped around her waist with the tie on the right side, and the rest of the jacket is draping down the other side and behind.


Sakuya is a dependable senior member who gets everyone together peacefully. She has a strong sense of responsibility for Lindow, which may be the result of a secret longing.

Character Relationships

  • Lindow Amamiya - Her fiancé and later her husband.
  • Tsubaki Amamiya - Her close friend and later sister-in-law.
  • Ren Amamiya - Her newborn son. The name 'Ren' is a given name from Lindow's old partner, Ren.
  • Alisa Illinichina Amiella - After Alisa's mental breakdown and recovery, they seem to become friends. In the anime adaptation, both of them aren't on good terms up to date as Alisa keeps on doing her job as a God Eater on her own.
  • Kota Fujiki - At first, Kota tries to impress her in the battlefield. Though after some events, he stopped doing this and just treated her as a friend. In the anime adaptation, it can be assumed that they are on good terms as Kota treats and respects his superiors well.
  • Soma Schicksal - They seem to talk only at certain times in-game due to Soma ending each chat as quick as he could. They seem to be on friendly terms, though. Their relationship in the anime adaptation is pretty much the same.
  • Protagonist (God Eater) - Sakuya owes a lot to them due to them bringing Lindow back, and protecting the branch from any harm. In the anime adaptation, Lenka respects her well as a friend and a superior officer.
  • Shio - At first, she got alarmed and uneasy when she heard that Shio is an aragami but her uneasiness disappeared after Dr. Sakaki cleared off that Shio won't prey on them. After a few events, both of them are on good terms.
  • 2nd Unit/ Defense Unit and 3rd Unit/ Research/Reserve Unit - She respects each member well.


  • Sakuya, along with the Protagonist, are the only 1st Unit members who did not appear in God Eater 2.
  • Coincidentally, she bears a similar name to one of the protagonists in Kamen Rider Blade, Sakuya Tachibana/Kamen Rider Garren, who also happens to be a gun user just like her.
  • Sakuya was originally planned to be in the crossover RPG Project X Zone as an NPC, as evidenced by an image of her found in the game's internal files, but because the party never visits the Fenrir Branch, the event itself was never implemented. Soma, Alisa and Lindow even state in their dialog in the final release that they planned on taking the rest of the party there so they could regroup and get some information.
