A year after Suzuki Eri passed the auditions, it was announced by Tsunku that she alongside the other 3 successful auditionees finished their training and were going to debut under the group name Polaris α. Tsunku also stated that Suzuki Eri was to be the leader, as it was judged by age.
On January 1, Polaris α debuted with "SHINING☆STAR".
On January 1, to mark the 1st anniversary since Polaris α debut, Suzuki cut her hair short and dyed it black. When she was asked in an interview why she cut it and dyed it, she said "Because I absolutely love Polaris α and I want to show that I've grown from a year ago!" Soon after, Takahashi Rie followed her example and let her hair down.

The members were chosen were Suzuki Eri, Takahashi Rie, Nagase Mirei, Yamada Ayumu, Akimoto Miharu, and Sugiura Asuka. The unit's concept is to "bring energy and be full of surprises!".
