Minori Suzuki Profile
In spring of 2015, at the age of 17, Suzuki auditioned for the new diva role for the TV anime Macross Delta and beat out nearly 8,000 other auditionees. In April of 2016, she officially started her voice actress work, voicing Freyja Wion, one of the heroines of Macross Delta. She is also active as an ace vocalist in the idol group Walküre in the series.
In January 2018, she had her solo debut singing “FEELING AROUND,” the opening theme song for the TV anime Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles, which got public attention due to Koji Mihara’s (Frederic) contributions to the song. In December of that year, she released her much-anticipated first album. On March 31, 2019 she held a tour entitled “1st LIVE TOUR 2019~Miru Mae ni Tobe!~,” performing at Zepp music halls in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka, where she was very well-received. She released her second album, Jo Mino, in August 2020. Three anime theme songs, “Dame wa Dame” (ending theme for Magical Sempai), “Yozora” (ending theme for Asteroid in Love), and “Ephemera wo Atsumete” (ending theme for Ascendance of a Bookworm Part 2) were included in the album, which received favorable reviews.
Suzuki is currently one of the most powerful voice actress artists in the business. Using her outstanding vocal ability, wide-range of expressions, and striking smile as her weapon, she energizes everyone who watches her perform. She also has an impressive resume as a voice actress, voicing characters such as Hajime Fujiwara from The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, Akiho Shinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card, Uiui from SHOW BY ROCK!! Mashumairesh!! and Ena Shinonome from Project Sekai: Colorful Stage! feat. Hatsune Miku.
