Their first two maxi singles, "Red Beat of My Life" and "Luv is Magic," were released the same year. Imai's style of music is rockish pop, which suits her voice, but she also sang ballads and slow numbers as well, and even attempted rapping in "Don't Stop the Music".

Eriko with Crunch did not last long. She went on without them pursuing her solo career under her own name. She released her third single "In the name of Love" also in 2000. To date, Eriko as a soloist has released 6 singles, 1 album and a best album.

Imai has also lent her voice to one of the anime characters in Boku No Songoku in 2003, with her self-written single, "Butterfly" as the main theme song of that movie. She also starred in the hit movies Onmyoji in 2001 and Onmyoji 2 in 2003.
