Naoto Suzukawa (涼川 直人 Suzukawa Naoto) is the former groundskeeper of Starlight School and vocalist and leader of the indie rock band More Than True. He is also the younger brother of Tiara Yumesaki. As of Episode 127, Naoto is a new teacher at Starlight and is Rin Kurosawa and Madoka Amahane's homeroom teacher.
Though Naoto initially comes off as a rather impassive and indifferent person he cares for his friends and Starlight School. He is shown to be mature and wise as he commonly gives advice to Ichigo and her friends. He is kind, empathic, sensible, and down-to-earth, but can have a temper at times as shown in Episode 44. He has stated to not be interested in any of the students at Starlight School due to them being kids to him. He is also very blunt and straightforward and doesn't hesitate to say his thoughts; even if no one's around to hear them. He's also highly perceptive and is very good at discerning other people's feelings and situations.
Naoto has short messy black hair with his bangs covering his right eye. He has golden eyes and is most commonly seen in his groundskeeper uniform. When he performs he styles his hair in a way that still covers one eye.
Beginning Episode 127, he now wears a dusty blue dress shirt and a pink tie worn under a dark violet blazer with pale blue cuffs and a single gold star on the left lapel, paired with a brown belt and black trousers. He also begins wearing glasses, but it is unknown whether or not they're for aesthetic purposes only or if he is now actually visually impaired.
Suzukawa (涼川) Suzu (涼 ryō) means cool or refreshing and Kawa (川) means river.
Naoto (直人) means honest person. Possibly a reference to the band he is a part of More Than True and how straightforward he is.
- Naoto's older sister and the headmistress of Dream Academy. Naoto has been shown to care and hold a great deal of respect for his sister and will come to her aid if needed.
- Naoto and Ichigo are shown to have steady friendship throughout the series. He'd often offer her advice and would often go along with her ideas no matter how ridiculous they'd seem. Naoto was sometimes shown to be incredulous of Ichigo, but became accustomed to her personality nonetheless.
- Johnny and Naoto are shown to get along quite well. He's shown to not be bothered by Johnny's antics and apparently tolerates him calling him "Coolkawa" according to Shun Yotsuba.
- Naoto being the younger brother of DreAca's headmistress is a throwback to Episode 44, in which Aoi stated there was a rumor he was Headmistress Orihime's younger brother.
- He has a Kirakiratter under the name "Nao".
- He doesn't like the abbreviation "MoTru".
- Naoto owns a necklace from Lulu Christie's Fancy Cat Series.
- He is called "Nao-kun" by Tiara.
- Naoto's singing voice was initially provided by Kenta Harada, frontman of the band Rey. Following the band's disbandment in 2013, Naoto's vocals are now also provided by his seiyū, Toshiyuki Toyonaga.
- This makes Naoto the only character from the Aikatsu! series whose seiyū provides both their speaking and singing voice, a trait shared with the members of M4 in the Aikatsu Stars! series.
