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

you've been a fan for so long already.amazing!!!

I'd love to be friends with you!

Regarding rule 1...Lmao what a pair we'd make- I ,too indulge in sudden extreme fangirling!!!!on top of that i'm as random as kangaroos on crack! XD
I've read rule 3 and 4 already.I'd like to use your translations occasionally for making graphics if you don't mind :3

I'm Rosa .
I've only been an official ARASHI fan since June 2009.But been hanging around JE lovers since 1999 and beyond.
I'm Jun-baited with no ichiban ,coz like you said ,the magic starts with five not one so I am determined to like five not one.
But I DO tend to favour Ohno and Jun..*looks around guiltily*

Okay what else can I say? thats all for now

OH and your welcome to pop by my LJ but beware ...hehehe...
since your ichiban is JUN PON..do bring a bucket...

Hello there!

I am a pretty new fan of Arashi but I'm absolutely addicted to them like any other older Arashians and I so agree to #1 and #2!!! Of course, not forgetting #3 and #4, I promise that if I ever use your translations in any way (which is VERY highly impossible cause i'm pretty much a computer illiterate and I don't know how to go about doing all these stuffs besides posting comments!:x), I will PM you first and seek for your permission. Also, I agree to not redistribute your subbed videos anywhere in any form. I hate those despicable acts. I'm sorry that my lj is kinda blank! cause i prefer journalling my thoughts in diaries and my lj is mainly for Arashi and spree-ing! Haha! But I wouldn't mind if people ask me questions to get to know one another better!

Hope you'd accept my friend request!

heyyy, i know you don't know me and all, and i don't really expect you to add me or anything (though i would really love to be your friend), (as seen from post above) but then, this is a HUGE favor. I am so sorry, I did not get to see your post about the subbed video about the yamada taro charades thing right away and I really really want to watch it. :O too bad that it was already locked before i even got to download it. :O so if ever... please? pretty please with a cherry on top? THANK YOU (in advance, if ever)♥

anyways, on the other hand,
I'm Huey from the Philippines. My name is said as Hwey, not Hyuwee. I know right? it's weird. :))But anyway, i'm a 16-year old female high school student! :D i will abide by all of your rules.

thank you! :D

Hello hello!

I'm Naz and also an Arashi fan! I promise not to break the rules. I promise not to redistribute them, sell them, reupload them, or claim any part of them as my own. I definitely will respect everything that belongs to you. Hmmm. My journal is bland. I don't know how all those codes and stuff works so its the most basic thing you see =D

I'm Totz from Vegas.i'm working as a designer and I started to like Arashi when i watch Gokusen with Matsujun. i became a fan of Matsujun then slowly get to know the other Arashi Member and watch each members Dramas too. then right now after watching some Variety shows of Arashi like Mago Mago Arashi and TSD i'm so down with Aiba Masaki and Ohno Satoshi. but still in terms of liking, i like them all and if you are going to ask me who i like the most...it's going to be a tough question for me because i want all of them to put in my pocket.hehehe!
any ways if you check my page. hmm actually i'm still new here in LJ and try to put some blogs in every arashi show that i watch one by one...my account is still not that much to look at by i'm still trying to put up something there.

regarding your rules..yup, i respect and promise to abide all you rules here.

hope we can be friends and share are craziness with arashi! ^^

Subbers like you are heaven-sent for fangirls like me! ;p

My name is Bella and I'd love to be friends ^^
I LOVE Arashi and have been a fan for almost a year.
I've been a Japanese drama addict for several years now and as I'm sure you can guess I was Jun-baited into Arashi after watching HanaDan last spring. While he was my favourite at first it didn't take long for Nino to steal my heart with his sharp comments and witty quips on their variety tv shows. Though I must agree with you that the magic really only happens when all 5 are present on the screen.

Outside of the Arashi fandom I'm just a regular university student in Canada and I'm currently majoring in design. I have a huge interest in the arts in general and love things like musical theater, contemporary art, and dance.

I've just recently stumbled on your journal while looking for Yamada Taro Monogatari related things (after just finishing the drama) but after browsing through it I realized that I've been here before when I read a baystorm translation a long long time ago lol I haven't had time to keep up with baystorm since the summer but I remember commenting on an old translation you did that involved Nino, his sister, and a furniture store LOL.

Of course I promise to follow all your rules and never redistribute your translations/videos.

I've just realized how long this comment has become. Sorry! and thanks if you've taken the time to read through it all xD

Oh by the way.. I LOL'd at the 'Ah, cho, mah!' thing you've got for comments.
haha gotta love JunxSpicy food XD

hii! Pretty new to LJ and I ran across your profile!
Great to meet you. I'm sure I can deal with the extreme fangirling, since thats all I do as well hahaha. Thats pretty cool that you've been with Arashi before they were truly Arashi, what a journey! I'm proud of my days though haha we all love them regardless huh?

oh yeah i forgot to put, my fav is matsujun. but i was not jun-baited infact. but you are so good with words when you say that the magic only happnes when the 5 of them are together. very true! i really like gackt as well, and saw him and 3 of arashi perform on heyx3 so thats where the whole thing started! it's been over a year now of fandom haha. hope to hear from you soon! it's great getting to know other arashi fans!

Hello there! Seiya here!

It hasn't been two years since I got into Arashi fandom but been leeching around the communities since then! ^_^ Right! I am only a leech who rely on people who have access in Arashi videos and can understand Nihongo! hehehe...

Anyway, I promise to follow your rule of not re-distributing your subbed videos anywhere specially in online streaming. And rest assured I won't use your translations! ^_^
