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 please consider adding me. I'm Mel from Malaysia.

I don't always update on my LJ but I try when I do have time.

I love Arashi and will definitely put up with anyone who loves em. So I will not do anything to jeopardise my only means of understanding and enjoying Arashi media and misuse them for any gain except my own personal pleasure. TQ

Hi, I'm Lisa and I'm from Czech Republic. I just started my journal, but I'm afraid it will continue in Czech language, so you won't really enjoy it much. ^_^;; But still I love arashi and I would really love to see your videos. And I'm not the only one. My roommate and at least two other friends will appreciate it too. ^_~ You wouldn't believe how popular Matsujun is among my (girl)friends. ^________^

I am all up for Extreme fan girling, It's all I do ever since I first knew of them. You could say they took my life by STORM ;P (sorry about the pun :D).
I have been spreading the Arashi love all around me and I proudly announce that until now I have converted not less 8 people into the Arashi colorful Rainbow way :).
I promise not to re-upload, distribute, claim or gain benefit from any of the materials that i may download from your LJ.
So can you add me please >.<

Hey hey~
I'm Anna, currently studying in Rochester, New York. >.< To tell you the truth, I've been watching your LJ for almost a month now. And I've been meaning to add you but I'm a bit embarrassed. I know, I know, ridiculous much, right?

Well, I look up to people like you, who do the translations and stuff. And those who've been Arashi fans since FOREVER! Really, I do. I've been one of many Arashi fangirl for less than a year. And I'm still new to LJ. But you're welcome to visit my LJ. My primary blog was Blogger but since it's hard to maintain 2 blogs at a time, I moved to LJ and I closed Blogger. >_<

I'm adding you. And I totally understand the rules promise to abide them. I'll wait for the good news!~ ^_^

I've read some of your translations, and I really like your work. Hait! That's that for now. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu~

THANKS in advance.

Hi. I'm from Indonesia, been in the Arashi fandom for about a year now. My sister and me are clearly stalking Arashi daily. (Well, except for Weekend and days off, coz my home comp is such a slowpoke, thus I can't post/comment anything). I must admitt that I don't active in my LJ, but I do active in my friends/groups page. I love to read comments and reply on one. I don't active in LJ is due to the nature of my work, daily routines chores, and also I'm extremely shy on rambling abt my life if its not about my life, I would be very much confuse, on what should I post in LJ. That kind of stuff. Hope you'd understand it...

Well, since Arashi has enter my life, I can say, it has become more and more enjoyable, brighter, and very much alive. I can not wait for tomorrow to come, to see my LJ for any Arashi update, whatever it is, whatever small the info/news, if it is about Arashi, I will happily scream on (silently on my heart only ^^). The happiest is when I watched their concert .... And I've been comparing them with the others Jh group (per my sister temp..) and we agreed the only one that make the audience (both in the concert and us at home far far away)to be one with the group is Arashi. The others are good, nice, but they are not bringing FUN, and the soul just not connected and thus they didn't/unable bring the utmost to the audience. Thus the most troublesome day for me is when I have holidays...coz it means no comp, no int connection, and NO ARASHI!

I know you from LJ, mostly from Stormy (joined), 5x10 project, from works you have done. I might have took some of yours (directly in your LJ), but coz I was always able to take it within the time limit (coz I don't active in LJ while as many would like their friends to be active and so I'm embarrassed to add you). However, I got into trouble when I want to take one of your old files (not joined ones). And when I took a peak on your project lists, I know I have to in with you. The one I've been searching, Ao No Honoo, TSD, MMA...many more temptation....You are Rock!

I'ms orry if my rambling is too much. I don;t know when one told me to wrote about Arashi, my fingers just keep pressing the keyboards non-stop. So, I rarely insinuated with my brain anymore ^^, please do forgive the on and on blabber.

I promise I will only use your works for my own personal satisfactory and will follow all the rules you have stated no less. Please add me back. Thank you.

I can ensure that I follow all of your rules. My journal is not empty, but truly not full, too. As I say above, I've just join in fandom for some months, so I haven't done much ^^, and spend most of time to watch and read everything concern with Arashi-chan at the moment, mah~ always not enough time to love Arashi .
After all, I proud to be an Arashi's fan, knowing and loving Arashi are my lucky in my life.

I found you through your work in stormy. firstly, I want to thank you for doing all those translations and subbing work. And because I respect you for all your hard work, I will definitely follow your rules.

I love Arashi, and I am a Jun-bait (: i'm assuming you love Jun in KwP since you mentioned you were going to play with Momo (: I loved Jun since HanaDan and I've been addicted to him ever since :D

Not to worry, i update my lj often. and I understand what you mean when you say you take a long time to add people. I want to know people who I've added as well. So, hopefully you can add me back.

yoroshiku ne...

hello. like a lot of people, i know of you from aibakaland. I am from the U.S. and I've started liking the boys in 2007 but I officially fell in love in 2008. I hope you will add me back. really desperate to see ur vids, seeing that I got them when they were public, but it was deleted (permanently) from my files before I could watch it, specifically ANWA ep1.

Anyway, I ABSOLUTELY will follow your rules and not share them with anyone in any way.

I am currently a student in college. Working a part time job, and soon I will be joining the navy!...doing that will limit my time for arashi... will probably only get to watch them on days off to come back home.

Please, I will love it and appreciate it if you add me back. I would love to get your videos, even months later after you've released them, so i can come back and catch up on holidays. :)

Hello, my name is nienna. I've been an Arashi fangirl for nearly one year now, and I completely adore all of them, but Nino is always my ichiban (i got Nino-baited xD)

I will follow all your rules, and I will never ever repost or redistribute any of the videos, and will also never claim any of the videos as my own.

Thank you!

There are so many comments in this post! LOL! ♥

Anyway, hi Emkay! ♥ (You can call me Aret if you wish). I'd like to be friends with you. It's pretty amazing that you've been following them since junior days and that you're Aiba-bated. I swear I feel like that kid is so underrated most of the times.

I mean okay (warning: Im about to ramble), I barely flail about being attracted to Aiba because I'm always all for Nino and Sho. (Ohno too, occasionally). Jun kun is someone who blinds me with his prettiness. (In a good way.) But Aiba-- is different. It's like, I never feel the need to proclaim that I like him coz it's something I consider as a "fact of life". Not liking Aiba seems impossible to me. It's a given, basically. He... makes everything bright, cheerful, and oh-so-damn simple. And he's very earnest in his job while doing it in the most Aiba way possible. Plus, he calls himself Aiba chan. HOW MUCH CUTER CAN HE GET. *cough*

So yeah. ♥

Anyway, I read your rules and I pretty much know where you're coming from. I'm not a translator/subber but I used to scan my doujinshis (back when I was in anime) and magazines from 2 yrs ago. And as much as sharing is something I loved doing too, there sometimes exists an obvious abuse by people claiming credit for your own work, or publicly distributing your work without notice. I know how that feels, and I won't do that to you.

So if you don't mind.. let's be friends, yes? :D

*adds you
