Welcome to my Arashi-centered LJ! I'm a translator/subber for the Arashi fandom XD I share a couple things: translations, subbed videos, and occasionally, fanfics. Any translations (radio transcriptions, magazines, newspapers, etc.) remain public. My subbed videos, however, become f-locked in 48 hours after release are now archived and released at [livejournal.com profile] amnosxsubs. If you've arrived at my personal LJ looking for subs, please visit my subbing comm and comment for membership approval! :) My subs are no longer released here.

This is my personal LJ page. I like to get to know people before becoming friends, but please don't let that scare you away! I love chatting, so don't hesitate to comment on a public post or poke me on Twitter (@amnosxmatsujun). If you know me from somewhere else, please tell me where you found me and what you go by (platform, username, real name, whatever). That really helps me and could expedite the friend request process. :)

NOTE: Updated as of 2016.04.05 at 17:00 JST I am now OPEN TO TAKING SUBBING/TRANSLATING REQUESTS! :D Please find the LJ cut below for instructions on making such requests. Just a disclaimer so that we are on the same page: 1) I get requests on a daily basis, and 2) I am human with a demanding career. I only want to put my best work forward, so I apologize for the wait in advance. Thanks for understanding; you rock!

1. Magazines, newspaper articles, other printed press
Please provide a scan or image of the pages or parts you'd like translated. Kindly make sure that the image is large enough that I can see the print.

2. Lyrics
Simply give the song title!

3. Radio shows, audio
If you'd like a translation of a specific radio show, please provide related audio.

4. Video clips
I do not provide translations for video clips, as I prefer to sub videos. Please make a request using the SUBBING request format. Thank you!

Please go HERE and follow the steps listed to make a subbing request. It helps me keep the list in one place. Thank you for understanding!

NOTICE: I do not provide softsubs. I only release hardsubs.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) and bio can be found HERE. If you've ever wondered why my ichiban is Nino but my username has "matsujun" in it, read the FAQs. I get that question. A lot. xD

Quick facts:
- Fan since 1996 (Jr days included!)
- Career in Japan's entertainment industry--I help produce shows, movies, and translate professionally
- Ichiban: Nino
- OTP: NinoAi, Sakumoto (who doesn't love Sakumoto ;_; )
- Cellist
- Fetish: moles, hands, jaw lines

I'm now off to fight aliens with Kurono-kun. <3

hi dear! :DD

im Gent, a JE fangirl from the Philippines. :D ive been in the fandom for almost 6 years now. ihi. i actually flailed on all the groups, but ive been dangerously charmed by Arashi and NewS, which therefore made those two my priority groups. hahahah! xDD

well, first of all, i really want to thank you for sharing your work. <3 really really appreciate it. \(^o^)/! and of course, you could count on me to never redistribute your vids, upload on streaming sites and use them for profit. ooh yeah, uhm, honestly im not a blog-type person so you might find my journal bland. xDD but, if it's okay with you, you could add me up in multiply and facebook.. satoshi.gent@yahoo.com

im super sorry for making this long. ^_____^
more luck with your future releases and hope to know you better too! xD

Hello again. :D

Indeed, my memory didn't fail me. :) I was sure I had seen "amnosxmatsujun" somewhere before. Well, I've re-read all your conditions, and I promise to use the material you've created for personal use only, or as it was intended. I'm an honest person, and I'm truly amazed that such devoted Arashi fans, who dedicate hours in preparation Arashi material, put their trust in other fans who, we have to say, are somewhat strangers.

I do understand your position towards adding people as friends. I will be patient. :) I can already tell you though that my Livejournal might not be the most interesting place for people who aren't really close to me (like family members, or close friends), and I sometimes post in my mother tongue (French)... Anyhow. Thank you for your wonderful generosity! :D

Hello! I absolutely love Arashi, too! I was Jun-baited but my ichiban is Nino after going through both Aiba and Jun first. I'm still kind of new to Arashi, having discovered them just over a year ago, but I LOVE meeting other Arashians. I hope we can be friends. ^-^

Hi! I'm Aaliyah, an Arashi fan from the US. I was Jun-baited into the fandom in 2005 and he is still my ichiban today, but I seriously love all five of them. I added you as a friend and I hope you won't mind adding me back as well...^^
I promise to respect and abide by all your rules and regulations and never reupload or redistribute your files with anyone anywhere. Your files will strictly be for my own private use. ^_^Y

first of all XDD ahchoma. LOVE IT. Whenever my friend and I eat anything hot, we call it achoma. XDD

*ahem* so, i'd really love to be your friend, partly for the videos, but partly because after reading all that stuff up there about you, i'm like. AMAZED. srsly. a celloist?? OMG i love the cello! what a sexy instrument. (especially the opening to Angel mmmph >//<)

and again, i'm amazed. i just got into arashi (just learned of their EXISTANCE DX) a year ago. i wish i could be so lucky as to have been a fan since their jr days. XD they were soooo cute back then!!!

oh, and i promise not to distribute/steal/claim anything. PROMISE. i've flamed ppl before for doing that stuff so...you're safe :DD

Aiba-baited!! SO.AM.I. FOR THE WIN. he's my ichiban >//< i love that gif up there by the way...of him being adorkable (i love all the gifs, but that one's my fav...b/c i'm biased XDD)

ok, i'mma stop fangirling all over this post >.> (you warned ME about fangirling?? HAHA THAT FUNNY XDD) *ahem* anyways. please add me?? *.*

Hi! I'm Mari:)

I love Arashi like nothing else! I'm completely and irrevocably addicted to this group of human crack! I've been in the fandom for almost two years now, ever since I saw MatsuJun in Gokusen, but I am relatively new to lj. My ichiban is Riida, cause he is just too damn cute to ignore! XD But, of course, I love all of the members.

I pinky swear never to upload or redistribute any of your works, and to ask before I use something. Cross my heart and hope to die!

I really hope you add me back, but I won't take it personally if you don't:)

Hi there! I have been in the Arashic fandom for about a year and a half now and absolutely love them. They are as addictive as chocolate, ne. ^^ I admire their down-to-earth personalities, adorable their dorkiness and baka-ness, and respect them for their hardwork and dedication. :D

I would love to be added as a friend and you have my eternal promise that your files will not be redistributed in any form or shape. I greatly appreciate your hardwork and spreading the Arashi rabu rabu! Thank you!! ^^

I am Cindy. I just got to know about the Arashi members recent. I have always been with the Hey Say JUMP membersXD. Well, personally, I think it is very reasonable to lock journals like this because there are people who redistribute even if they say they won't and that can really cause problems. I've also heard from my Chinese friends that Chinese subbed materials are on sale online and I despised them. I hope you will add me soon. But just so you know, English is my second language, Chinese is my first language, so I don't like my grammar and I don't reply people often because of that. I will try my best to reply. Thank you. Hope you will add me.

Ehhh?? I thought I already commented but I couldn't find my comment! I'm posting another one, but if I already did post, please just forget about this one (even though I seriously forgot what I wrote, they may be the same).
Random fangirling is FuN! =) Its great to see other people loving Arashi like I do, in fact, when I download vids, I really like the comments by the uploader, for example, tsuribaka, since people like Juu-chan, Jen-chan usually have a lot of wonderful caps in their posts with some references to their lives and it makes it all the more interesting and personal =)
Hmm.. I was (like a lot of people), Jun-baited. It didn't help that I'm in Australia and the only reason I even got introduced to HYD was because some of my relatives from Singapore came. I DreaD to think of what could happen if they cancelled their trip!! A life without Arashi! Preposterous!! Lol, I just felt like adding a funny word, somehow "preposterous" gives me an image of some old gentleman witha coat and tie being disapproving. Okay, sorry, that was my random side.. *pushing it aside*
Mmm, what else? Oh yeah =) I promise NeveR to upload any of your work! I think you heard about the recent YT situation, I'm SO touched that the whole fandom rallied together! It reminds me that we are not just random people from all over the world, we are actually random people from all over the world, UNITED by our boys!
My LJ isn't exactly full, but its actually quite empty, I tried to blog regularly but I'm just not that kind of person, I work better when I feel like I'm talking to someone and sadly lol, I know that hardly anyone visits my LJ =) I'm currently playing with photo editing and making icons, I hope that one day I can make icons that I can share with the whole fandom! =)
Erh.. lol, I think I rambled on too much, I'll just stop here =)

SmileS n LaughteR,
