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! I love Arashi, too! I'm an Aibanatic, (okay, that was a term I invented just now) to be specific but I DO love them all! I love watching their shows, saves me from a rather crappy day. I've read your rules and I promise to follow them respectfully! :D

btw, I created this new LJ account exclusively for Arashi (well, so I can read stuff about them and hopefully, get to watch more of their subbed shows!) my other LJ blog is too jaded so I decided to create a new one, a happier one which fits my mood whenever I watch their shows and doramas. ;p

Hello! My name is Tey and I would to meet other Arashi fans and share the love. I'm new in LJ - I used to blog in Wordpress and Tumblr - but decided to move here so I can be closer to the fandom community. Subbed videos are nice but I'm actually more interested in flail cracks and fan fictions and other extreme forms of fangirling. My ichiban is Aiba and your translations of his radio show really makes me happy. So anyway, I really hope you consider adding me back. Thanks. :)

^_^ Hi there! I just thought it'd be weird if I friended you back without saying a quick hi and introducing myself. Hi~

I mostly use my journal for random Arashi ramblings and interview translation into my mother tounge vietnamese... and I tend to write a lot when I get going, haha. Feel free to ignore my fangirling or join in ^__^

Yoroshiku ne~! ~Melrose

hi emkay.. ^^
just so you know, I'd like to make an introduction first..
my name is zeann. of course it's just my nickname. my actual name is zeannette.. it sounds not creative, eh? xp
I'm a student at germany university but actually I'm an Indonesian.
I really am crazy about our beloved Arashi but there are so much that I don't about them. so it's really nice if we can share our knowledges about them, right?
I've added you and hoping you would add me back. I promise not to redistribute or repost your subbed videos..
thank you so much for your hard work. you are so blessed! :)

Hi there. I think I've commented before, but I have no memory so XD

My name is Jóna and I'm from Iceland :D I'm a HUGE Arashi fan XD like seriously, and my favorite is leader~ (he somehow stole first place from Sho, poor failboat D: ♥ )

I would, of course, never reupload your videos anywhere, and quite frankly, I think the people who do that are just rude and ******. :/

Hi there~ ^_^

my name's Amanda and I am also an arashi fan who also has moments of random fangirling that can get quite intense XD maybe we could fangirl some time together ne?

yoroshiku onegaishimasu! *bows*

Hey Emkay, Trichia here. Is it okay to add you as a friend? Because you answered the q's posted in the front, I think it'll only be fair if I answer those too.

Who are you?
The name is Trichia, I think I've been a fan for only about 3 years or so.. I watched Boku ha Imouto ni Koi wo Suru and I decided to check who the actors were.. so from there I get to know Arashi. I've been Nino fan from the start.
What do you really do?
I'm a full-time University student. I don't really do anything else besides studying and going to concerts and downloading arashi videos :p

I don't know if this is enough, but I'd be happy if we can be friends :D

uhmm, hello! name's meoinkie, another die-hard Arashi fan from the Phils. ^_^
my ichiban is Nino, niban is Riida although lately im totally leaning towards the Miracle Boy xD
but anyways, i still love all of them, of course it won't be Arashi if it weren't for each one of them ne?
idk if my own LJ page is credible enough since i have to admit, i rarely make entries on it and there's nothing i could do if i were really a lazy bone LOL
hopefully i'll be added unto your f-list, besides the reason that you're one of the many wonderful people providing the fandom with goodies but also it'd be nice to have another person i could totally relate with and that is the never-ending flailing on our stormy dorks..yoroshiku!
also, i definitely would abide by your rules ^_^

Hello, emkay, I'm Alarice (my real name is fey, but it's a top secret, I'd like to share with you since this is your personal LJ).

I reeaaallly love Arashi. I've never been in to boyband but a certain voice that suit Madonna's "like a prayer" made me walk back to my living room, the tv was showing Arashi's Love So Sweet in Music Station. Back then I didn't even know whose voice was it. Now I feel like I could never live any day without hearing Oh-chan's voice =P

Thanks to Oh-chan's wonder voice, I became a huge arashi fan!! I promise to abide all your rules, I have never, and I will never redistribute or upload any of arashi videos I got from any arashi communities, I'm just sooooo thankful that you're willing to share arashi love with us so I will certainly respect your hardworks...

Oh, I'm not frequently visit my own lj, depending on my work, but I will try to post as frequent as I can, so please, pretty please add me, after you feel like you already get to know me (^_^)

i promise that i will not distribute ur work under any form with any website. i do respect copy right and i appreciate ur hard work, so re-distributing would be the last thing in the world i would do

Hey, I am Esther! I became an Arashi fan about 2 years ago after watching Gokusen (ok, I know I am slow... but in my country, the korean craze is stronger than the Japan craze so there had been a total lack of Jap movies/variety shows on the TV here :( ...) I really hope that you will add me as your friend. :)

I really appreciate all your efforts in subbing the videos and am really grateful that you are willing to share your works. Thanks for subbing and I really hope you would add me as your friend... :)

Well My name is Liz and I am from AZ, the hottest place in the US. I am an Arashi fan-girl that has very eclectic tastes in music and if you get to know me you will understand just HOW eclectic. I do have stuff on my journal I just don't blog very much. I don't post other people's video on other sites for 2 reasons. 1. I don't know how and 2. I think it is rude. So you don't have to worry about me doing such things. I will only use these videos for my personal fan-girling. ^^

Hi there!! My penpal, Arashi fans usually call me yuki! And I am from Singapore. I became Arashi fan for 11 months by now though I know them 2 years ago. I regretted so much that I didn't check them properly since that 2 year ago. I absolutely love them. I have livejournal and so many accounts in other sites like vox, aibakaland and so on just because of Arashi. I have no intention of sharing files and posting them at all if they are not my work. I have seen your name in lots of Arashi subbed vids from stormy. If you don't mind, I would like to be friends with you not only because of subbing vids but also because of the fact that I love to make friends with Arashi fans. I have added you. =)
