Suzuki Airi was a member of Japanese girl-group, C-ute. The group released their first indie single, “Massara Blue Jeans” in 2006. In 2007, they made their major debut with the song “Sakura Chirari”. Airi continued to perform with C-ute until June 12, 2017. On this day, the group held their last performance in the Saitama Super Arena before disbanding. Airi is currently focusing on becoming a solo artist.
Airi was one of my favourite members of Hello Project. She was and still is adorable and likeable. She has a refreshing personality and an enticing smile. Not to mention, she has a contagious laugh. She did not let her role as the main vocalist of C-ute get to her head. I would be surprised if anyone said that they hated or disliked Airi.
Airi was not only talented in singing but acting as well. One of my favourite roles I have seen Airi play was the role of Imamura Ria in Ousama Game. I really hate horror movies but being the big Hello Project fan I am, I just had to watch this movie. Airi’s acting was almost perfect in this movie. In my opinion, she even outshined main actress, Kumai Yurina.
I am very glad that Airi has decided to pursue a solo career. She is currently taking a break to improve her skills. I am curious to see what kind of image she would have as a soloist. Until then, I await her return!
