Here is a translation of Airi's long interview from her latest style book "Airimania", released in 2017.
There are many things she already talked about in the long interview of her first book "Airi-aL", therefore I skipped those, unless she added some details to the stories or it became too incomprehensible for me to left it out. I strongly advise you to read her first interview before this one !
I love to sing. It's something I've had inside me since childhood
(...) Both of my parents are pro golfers, and as they both know how difficult and strict the life of a sportsman is, they never forced me to do golf or anything and let me enjoy what I wanted to enjoy from such a young age. When I was in primary school, I studied piano, english, dance, had voice lessons...
As I always had something to learn, I don't have too much memories of playing with friends after school. I do have a memory of trying my best to remember all of the Pokemon names though. I don't know if that's because of it, but I lived in Gifu then moved to Chiba, so I grew up without knowing anything about Pokemon. Even though most of my comrades were addicted to it. I remember learning all of their name because all of my classmates were so into it, I didn't want to be left out.
