Aiba was a former member of the disbanded three-men, originally four-member, streetdancing group called Brights. The other two members included Atsushi Koga and Takuya, who happened to later go on to play Jiro Akutagawa in Tenimyu with Aiba. The group disbanded after Aiba joined Avex Management after winning the Junon Super Boy Contest. At that time, Aiba still was an amateur at dancing and he has stated in past blog entries that he owes a lot to Takuya, who was already an experienced dancer by then, for teaching him. they usually performed in Yoyogi Park.
The Prince of Tennis Musicals
In 2005, Aiba won the role of Shusuke Fuji, the prodigy of Seigaku middle school's tennis club, in The Prince of Tennis musicals, Tenimyu. From 2005 to 2006, he became the third actor to play Fuji as a member of the second generation Seigaku cast. He made his debut as Fuji on January 8, 2005 in the Side Yamabuki performance in Osaka. That same year, his role as Fuji was carried into the live adaptation film of the manga.
On March 29, 2006, in the Dream Live 3rd live concert, Aiba did not graduate alongside the rest of his fellow second generation Seigaku cast; instead, he decided to continue performing in the musicals and acted as a guide for the new third generation Seigaku cast members from 2006 to 2007. After the Absolute King Rikkaidai feat. Rokkaku ~ Second Service musical, Aiba graduated along with the majority of third Seigaku cast. He has been the longest serving actor to play Fuji, as well as the second longest serving actor in Tenimyu. Since his graduation, the role of Fuji was played by Yūta Furukawa.
On the Tenimyu website, it was announced that both the fourth and fifth Seigaku casts would take turns performing the next two musicals; Aiba made a brief return to reprise his role as Fuji with the fifth Seigaku cast in the Imperial Presence Hyotei Gakuen musical as there was no time to find an actor to play Fuji. After that show, actor Taito Hashimoto carried on as the fifth cast's Fuji. Following the fifth cast's graduation, the role of Fuji is played by Ryo Mitsuya.
Aiba released a Best Actor's album in 2006, for his role in the musicals as Fuji, called The Prince of Tennis Musicals Best Actor's Series 003 - Hiroki Aiba as Shusuke Fuji.
