Suzuki had a rather short
career at Toho as a special effects director of theatrical
films, which only spanned across one Mothra movie and
two Godzilla films. It appears that Suzuki might have
taken the blunt of the blame for Godzilla
vs. Megaguirus' (2000) box office failure,
which is why his career might have ended so abruptly.
Before Suzuki became a director of special effects,
he was the assistant special effects director for The Imperial Navy (1981) as his first production. He dabled in assisting outside of special effects, before teaming with Koichi Kawakita for Bye-Bye Jupiter (1984). Seven years later, Suzuki would become Kawakita's go-to assistant from Godzilla
vs. King Ghidorah (1991) until Kawakita's retirement from theatrical work.
In 2003, Suzuki would
be back at Toho, however, this time in the director's
chair as he helped helm Toho's successful The
Gransazers TV show. He continued this trend with the follow-up series in the Star God franchise: The Justirisers (2004).
