Here's the requested English subbbing of Mastuura Aya on Sekai Dangan Traveller. She goes to Andalucia in Spain, to check out the Alhumbra Palace. For those who don't know, Matsuura Aya is/was one of the biggest Japanese idol singers. She burst onto the scene at the start of the 2000's and found huge success through to around half way of the decade before suffering from health problems. This forced her career to slow down but she is still remembered as an 'Idol genius' or a person born to be an idol.

If you've been checking this blog for a while and reading the little text that I write about of my opinions, you may have gathered that I'm not fan of idols. I really don't like AKB45 (or 48? (-_-)) or all those Johnny's groups that are supposedly good looking (well some of them are but only like 1~3 in each group....). Sorry if I offend any fans about this but I just don't like them, mainly for their overrated, soulless music that keep getting churned out of a machine and topping charts.
Well kinda got off topic.....but what I wanted to say is that I don't feel that way about Matsuura Aya. I think that she genuinely has talent. You can tell her voice is good without help of machines. Also, although she may seem like the typical cute idol, it's not annoying like most others and is a genuine cuteness which is something you don't usually see in the robotic clone world of agency puppets aka Japanese idols.
I don't want to seem like an idol hater because I'm not. I don't like who I don't like, and I like who I like. Regardless of whether they're idols or not. Anyway it's getting long and off sort of off topic so I'll try and write a post just for my opinion on this sometime..
