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

I added you. And my name is Nhi Ai, age 16 (17 in November) from Vietnam, but was born and live in Norway. I have been an Arashi fan since the beginning of 2008, just right before they release "Step and Go".

I know you from stormy_team and zero_off_air, and I really love your works and hope for more. Of course I will follow your rules no matter what.
You can know me better too, since my LJ is just about my daily life. And sometime I forget to update my LJ =P

please consider me! :) <3

Hi, I'm just popping into to ask if it would be okay if I could be added when you can?
First of all, I promise not to upload or share your works, and will only download the subbed videos which are locked for my own personal enjoyment.

Okay, as it is fair enough to get to know someone before you add them, I'll say a bit about me ( because my LJ is almost entirely F-locked so it's harder to check).

I'm a big Arashi fan, and I was Jun-baited ( such a common story huh?) into the fandom as a whole, with the drama Kimi wa petto, but that only started me on the road to J-dramas. I knew Jun was part of a band but 3-4 years back I was mostly into the J-rock side, which I do still love, and thus I kind of missed the opportunity to get into Arashi then. Fast forward a year and I had got caught up into the NEWS, KAT-TUN, Kanjani8 and Kinki Kids fandoms. I'm not sure what exactly caught me for Arashi, but I think it was seeing Ohno and Nino in some things, being amazed, and strangely seeing a parody of We Can Make It on Youtube.
So two years ago, I got dragged here, and I'm still terribly addicted. They brighten up my day, and still amaze me. I would say that Ohno is my favourite, but I love all the boys.

Hope this okay, and not a total ramble about nothing. Thanks!

So since I'm hoping you'll add me I guess I should introduce myself! 8D (I'll make it in topics, easier to read right?!)
-I'm Kerols
-I'm from Brazil
-An Arashi fan since february 2009 (04/02/2009 to be more exact...hahahaha why do I know the exact date?I don't know either >w< )
-Jun baited, yep Hanadan started everything xD
-Now dear Sho-chan is my ichiban (I've changed from Jun ->Nino->Sho, I believe that my ichiban will remain Sho-chan for a long long time)
-I don't really make anything to share with the fandom unfortunately(I wish I had more skills to make things)...BUT I made some icons for Nino's birthday, hope you can check that =)
-I would like to add you because: first - I would love to have you on my friends page so that I could more easily find out about your releases and second I would love to see your subbed videos as well! ^^
-Regarding the sharing without permission and uploading on sites I promise not to do such things! everything that is posted here is your hard work right? so I think it should be used as you wish ;D
I guess that's it...hopefully you'll add me

Hello! I've been looking through onlyarashifiles and I stumbled upon your posts.
I'm 18 and I live in the US.
I absolutely adore Arashi :D
Arashi music makes me happy and I love their variety shows.
My favorite is Nino. He sort of just drew me in; the first time I saw him I wanted to know who he is so he was the one that introduced me to Arashi. His acting definitely helped attract my attention. And I absolutely love his songs, my favorite is Konseki ^^
And I mainly write fanfiction so most of my personal posts are part of author's notes on my fic updates ^^;
And I promise not to redistribute or stream your releases.

P.S. I was also wondering where the quote in your header is from...I really like it.

I don't know if you remember me cause I only comment on your Baystorm updates but I told you before that I really wanted to see that Ao No Honoo Making clip T____T

I know you must think I'm really selfish adding you just for my Nino fetish but honestly if we do become friends then I'm all up for it and I WILL comment on your personal entries and everything and I myself rant like its no one's business so I guess in that way it might be unpleasant for you if we become friends XD

So I hope that we CAN become friends (your journal is so Ninofied it makes me happy sitting here LOL)

Hi there!

I'm not sure if you've seen me around lj/Arashi comms yet, but I'm kitkatgrl16 of...quite a few Arashi comms on here...XD I'm also on the Aibakaland forums, if you're on there!

>.> I hate to say, but since RL has been keeping me busy, I haven't had a lot of time to update my journal lately. :/ Plus, I'm more of an artist than a writer *fail*, so they may be random picspams or artwork in my journal. :Db

I read through your rules, and I promise to follow ALL of them. Especially Rules 3 and 4.

A cellist? :O I never could play an instrument...XD I'm more of a choral/vocal person...like Ohno. :3 But with the Outgoing-ness of Aiba. 8Dv

And I've been in the fandom nearly a year and a half...o.o Wow...time flies...>>

I hope to be able to watch your work soon! :D
