She still visits the place just for a family visit or just to hang out with them. She always questions herself about the things she wants to do as an Idol like what was her goal for doing this she never had a real reason why she wanted to be an Idol, but hope one day she's able to find some sort of reason that leads her into being an Idol.
Before Airi auditioned to get into Goddess Ark she took a tour of every academy that was listed in the brochure map. She even traveled around places just to work hard on her Idol activities even though it wasn't easy she was able to manage such as doing morning runs, working on her signature on a big piece of white paper and even tried to dance, but failed so many times. Airi knew that getting into one of these academies we're going to be hard, but she was willing to take that chance. She really loved kids, so at times when she isn't busy working on her Aikatsu she would play,read and interact with the childrens it made her really happy.
When Airi was watching the entry's to get into Goddess Ark she was really surprised at the people auditioning here she thought to herself that she wouldn't have a chance, but didn't want to give off a negative vibe because she won't know unless she tries. The second she stepped foot into Goddess Ark it was really beautiful that her eyes begin to shine smiling looking around. As Airi was doing the entry exam she did mess up quite alot making her embrassed she felt like everyone that helped her prepare for this big day was just a big waste due to how many times she failed at the dance, but it wasn't her fault she didn't get enough sleep. The next day even though Airi knew she wasn't going to get accepted she decided to check anyway when she saw her name her face lit up and a huge smile bloomed across her face she was really happy.

She's a hardworker who would help anyone even if she has a busy schedule because she has a hard time saying no, but she's still working on it.
Airi is very shy and clusmy when it comes to meeting new people she tries her best to get along with everyone. She usually would feel very awkward in crowded place because she probably would get lost and would be very scared and freak out. She's someone who tries to play the big sister figure, but fails she remembers drawing in her notebook of all the things she would do to make herself seem more grown up and it didn't turn the way she wanted to when she showed her siblings they both just laughed and teased her. Airi was really embrassed and went back upstairs to her room to try again.

When Airi was young she used to be very emotionless and showed no feelings whatsoever. After her real mother and father got divorced and left her she was forced to stay at this place she absolutely hated. Hearing all the screams and cries of people being tortured, she thought what has this society come to. Airi was very scared trembling like she saw a ghost or something. The way the kids that were her age treated it was like they had no freedom at all. They were forced to work every single morning and were taught difficult subjects. If they didn't score well they were going to be put in this room were they'd fix them. It happened to Airi a few times she would cry wanting to leave this place it was like she was a bird trapped in its cage and have no freedom to spread her beautiful wings.
Every night Airi would pray that her parents would come back to get her atleast one of them even if she tried it wouldn't fix anything it's not like they supported her when she wanted to be an Idol as a dream and were usually busy working. Airi decided to tough up and just did her best it's not like she'll ever smile and once she completes what she has to do she'll free herself and everyone else here. So, everyday Airi and a few kids would do everything they can to create a hole to get out. It took 5 months to do, so and they went through the tunnel to escape after that and ran off to the police to tell them everything after they dealed with this whole mess. They were at an adoption center were they met very nice people.
