|If one day I find someone to love |
I wonder if I'll leave this place
Don't worry, there's no such person
Hey, why ?
You guys should be happier
You're so inconsiderate and nosy
It's not as if I had expectations though
This star's miracle
I won't get lost even in this dark universe
I'll find my way to this window's light
It goes on, even if the world changes
See, I'm smiling today
I'm sure I'll be smiling tomorrow too
Lala We're a family
I was such a child back then
Jealous of my friends' houses
I didn't know, constantly looking far away
That it has always been there
The meaning of "happiness"
I'm not smart, I'm boring
It's not something you can be proud of, but
This star's miracle
It's amazing, you know, because in one hundred million places
This is the one where I was born
We've been able to meet in this wild world
Look, we all have the same face
We look even more alike when we smile
Lala We're a family
Dec 31, 2020
2020 just ended ^^
But now I've also gained many experience
(*t/n : "Your environment now is what makes the person you'll be in 3 years. If I'm satisfied with who I am now, it's all thanks to who I was 3 years ago. And if I'm struggling, it's because I didn't work hard enough 3 years ago. So, even if there's something bad happening now, it's all the result of 3 years ago, and nothing will change by worrying now.)
I keep going forward every single day,
I know there's also need to stop,
But as I can't help but move forward,
I'd like to do it while being true to myself,
And be in a state where I can gear up any time.
Opportunities come suddenly,
So I don't want to miss the chances I get
And don't want to waste them.
I'm a 26 years old
Still thinking about such things
About my music activities,
I had my acoustic lives
And my main tour was "Heart to Heart".
Throughout the year
I conveyed my feelings through
Other artists' words.
(t/n : Airi mostly performed covers this year)
This experience made me discover new feelings, and made me realize once again how much I love singing.
I feel that music has helped me a lot this year.
But I'd like to sing more of my own songs next year
I only did sang and danced to my own songs at fashion shows this year
I want to go wild with you all soon！！lol
For my work as a model also
It was a year of change.
I appeared in more beauty magazines
but also launched my brand iDIMPLE.
I fought with complexes until now,
And all these new works were kinda linked to all I've researched about these topics.
A heart that continues to believe.
If I don't believe in myself,
Who will do it for me, right ?！！
I won't stop believing.
With that in mind, I want to continue moving forward in 2021.
There was the frustrating baseball opening ceremony,
"Golf Digest", in which I appeared with my father for the first time,
My MC work for NHK's Classic TV,
The program I've started on an application, BUZZ LAB.,
My first contact lenses with Candy Magic,
My evergoing collaborations with the brand Samantha,
My appearance in the magazine "Kids Tokei" where I've been interviewed by kids,
My model work in a wedding dress for the magazine "Zexy"
、、、And so on.
Looking back at it
Everything happened so fast
But it was such a fulfilling year
I couldn't even imagine
There are many stuffs I've had the recordings or the shootings for,
I've did a lot of things to prepare for future releases in 2021, so please wait for a bit！！！
Even if I have to work a lot,
as it was a year where I've been surrounded by people's warmth,
I was very happy.
I've been receiving many messages
related to my solo feature in Ray magazine,
You've also wished my birthday on Instagram
I've tried to do lives every day for the golden week, too
I always think I'm grateful,
But I'm truly grateful for all of you.
All the things I thought were natural,
I realized I shouldn't take them for granted,
You were already very important to me
But this year made me realize
How much you've been supporting me mentally too.
I want to give smile to
Every single person who's involved with me,
And I want to deliver courage.
Nobody knows what kind of world it'll be in 2021,
But I hope that the days when you can laugh from the bottom of your heart will continue.
I really want to meet you all！！
Thank you for 2020
I've wrote and erased many things
And now we're in 2021
Still, let me set the blog update on December 31
I'm counting on your support in 2021 as well！
I love you, Airimania！！！！

Airi's LIVE HISTORY
Looking back on the live performances since my solo debut
Do me a favor / PARALLEL DATE / Escape / No Live, No Life?
Suzuki Airi 1st live ～Do me a favor @ COTTON CLUB～ (26.03.2018)
My first solo live before my debut, so it was like "Episode 0". Also the first full live I performed since °C-ute's disband. I think I was the most stressed I've ever been (laughs) They were lives separated between dance-focused and band-focused ones, and the ones at Cotton Club were the dance ones. I was excited of course, but I also had many pressure to make the fans who came to see me - who didn't know most of the songs I'll perform, have a great time. I did everything I could. This live hasn't been released on DVD so there aren't many videos from it, it feels like an illusion to me (laughs)
My first live was at Cotton Club～♪
I'll never forget the fans looking like they were thinking "What am I supposed to do ?" (laughs)
Suzuki Airi 1st live ～Do me a favor @ Zepp Tokyo ～ (09.04.2018)
This live at Zepp Tokyo was also before my debut and was focused on the band tracks. On the dance-focused lives, they were many genres different from what I did as an Idol until now, but the band track were pretty close to what I did, that's maybe why I have a strong impression that it ended happily (laughs) I really did my best at performing "No Live, No Life" ! The year of my solo debut was pretty fast so more than making me change my feelings, it's a year that made me gain a lot of experience. I also remember that as my birthday was close, I received a cake and could celebrate it with fans during the live ♡
Suzuki Airi 1st live ～Do me a favor @ Nippon Budokan～ (09.07.2018)
I did my solo debut with my album release on June 6 and the biggest celebrations were with this solo live at Nippon Budokan. It felt really weird to me to be standing on the stage of Nippon Budokan alone. At that time, I wanted to introduce the songs of my debut album but didn't want to always separate them into dance - band - dance - band tracks, and tried to do a varied setlist based on the cameleon concept. I wore so many outfits, honestly I was constantly in a hurry like a storm (laughs) But after that I realized "I can do it alone...".
Did you know my bangs there were in fact, a wig ? (laughs)
To celebrate the one year anniversary of her Budokan live, Airi shared her secret to perfect bangs... 🤐— 鈴木愛理ONLINE ❄ (@airimania_info) July 8, 2019

ABOUT Airing the Bell
Interview made in March, just before the Yokohama Arena live !
Airi : The title of this live comes from the lyrics of my song "IDENTITY". It's a pun with my name "Airi" and I want to convey that feeling of "This is what I am now". I want to make it a live which will makes rings the bell of everyone's hearts. The me I am now wants to move people's hearts with her singing. There's also a band and choreographies, but it's set up without a story. It's a live where you can simply enjoy music. I can't wait to do it !!!
Airi : Yes. Of course there are many parts I'm trusting the staff on, but I've participated in all the meetings. It was also my first time participating in the meetings about the music on stage.
Airi : Like the title conveys, who I am now. During my solo debut, I really relayed on my experiences with °C-ute but after my "Escape" tour, many fans told me "I'm happy you are thinking of fans, but you can be yourself, you know. I'll follow you anyway", which I didn't expect. Until now, 80% of my artist image was like my Idol one, but this time, I want to trust myself like fans do. I'm really grateful to them.
Airi : That's right. This time I created goods I wanted to do, while listening to everyone's opinions. This live book is also a new type of goods ♡ I also participated in the creation of the goods. It takes a lot of energy and sometimes the outcome isn't like I always wanted, but it feels like I'm moving forward step by step. Like a brand new world's still awaiting for me.
Airi : I try to sleep as much as I can the day before. Sleep is what has the most impact on my voice so I try to get at least 8 hours. I can't reach notes when I don't sleep. Also I eat tonkatsu before the live. I also rehearse alone before sleeping, to get in the mood. I trust in the fact anxiety will be removed by the night before and then the brain will handle it while sleeping. And the day of my lives, I don't have any particular routine, I just gargle (laughs)
Airi : Before the performance, we get in a circle and chant "Wai wai wai, fuuuu !" ♡ Also I ask to have natto and eggs. Since my °C-ute days, I enjoy eating rice bowls with natto and eggs, so there are always some in the catering. That's my grab-and-go breakfast.
Airi : Yes ! (laughs) But I'll never talk anymore like I did on the "No Live, No Life?" Nagoya performance. I think I sounded like a completely different person (laughs) Even though my staff members told me "Suzuki, you can do a live with just music", after the first performance in Tokyo they were like "Yeah, nevermind". Actually, my grandpa passed away before the Nagoya performance (t/n held on December 25, 2019). It made me think that I don't know when I'll lose the people I cherish, that living through music isn't forever and that I don't know how many more times I'll be able to meet my loved ones, including my fans. That's why I was on the verge of crying during "IDENTITY" during this live. Well, anyway, I never know how excited I'll be to talk during my next live (laughs)
Airi : In contrary to the "No Live, No Life ?" tour where I guided everyone, this time I wanted to create a free and cohesive live where everyone could participate or clap their hands as they wish. There are various type of fans who come to see me, some who got their heart broken, some who feel down, but I want them to forget about their daily life and enjoy themselves during the live. I want to make it a live where people can feel the power of music, so please everyone, look forward to it !
t/n This book should've been sold during Airi Suzuki's solo performance at Yokohama Arena, which was unfortunately cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Still, Airi chose to release the goods and also updated this book with her current feelings.
To Airimania ☺︎
So many things happened in 2020.
This is a book I've worked on, preparing my solo live at Yokohama Arena. I kept everything I felt towards this live as it was, but it has also been updated on some parts !!
Receive it well ♡
I don't want to waste everything I've felt.
May my feelings reach you all !!!
