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

hey, hey, hey!! an Arashi fan as of jan this year. already spent over 500bucks buying their dramas, etc. X}
only reason i haven't spent more is that singapore doesn't have more to spend on. ahhahaha!

would love to add you as a friend on LJ, esp for AnWA. hahaha! damn, i'm starting to feel maniacal.


my LJ is certainly active, but i keep a blog, so i juz copy paste my posts over. altho my lj does have a few more tweaks and such stuff, due things that flood my mind after posting on blogger, and juz being too lazy to edit both posts. hahaha!

please accept my friend request. =)

my name is sylvia, i'm from germany and i'm just a little fangirl of many JE stuff^^
i found arashi only recently but instantly fell in love with them - if you can call it that^^"
but since my japanese is just enough for undersanting the simplest sentences i'm glad when i find subs or translations over all these boys^-^
of course i'd like too see some of these stuff you subbed - and i promise i wont share this anywhere, because that's the worst - but if i can make new friends, fangirl with them or just talk nonsene that's "okay" too ;)


PS: cello seems difficult. but i too have played for weddings too... but only with a clarinet quartett or my orchestra ;)

Hi *waves*
Arashi no Dai fan desu! Well this means that I'm totally ok with your number 1 rule (I even support it ^_^) So number 2 is also checked! lol
Rules 3 and 4: I only have to respect them cause I will never uploaded to streaming sites ^_^

SO... I hope to enjoy more of your arashi-love-distribution cause It's impossible to not love those 5 ne? yoroshiku ne? (^_~)v

Hello there Emkay-san! My name is Tara :)
I'm also Arashi's huge fan, and i wish I can befriend with you.
I promise to follow all of your rules, not to redistribute your subbed videos as well as translations and other things you share.
of course i have an LJ, and it isn't blank. but i rarely update it especially when I'm busy with college.
but it doesn't mean that i won't comment when i take something from others ;)
so if it's okay with you, i hope you could add me back! ^^

ps: i love your gifs up there, especially the third one ;)

Hi. My name is Doti. I don't really update my lj that often since I don't have much to write about and I usually keep my posts f-locked (so you might not see a lot of stuff if you look at my entries). But feel free to drop by and browse through whatever you can find in my lj and feel free to ask me about whatever catches your attention.

I will follow your rules. I don't really see a point in reposting other people's work. btw, let me take this chance to thank you for your work. Thank you so much! I especially like your translations.

I think it's kinda cool that you're a cellist. I've always found it interesting that the Arashi fandom, especially the Arashi fansubbers, is made up of very diverse groups of people.

p.s. i did something stupid, and accidentally replied to a post instead of commenting on the entry. so i'm reposting it as a comment. sorry!

Hi! I hope you will consider me for an add! I really love love Arashi, really really. Especially Jun <3

I have read the rules and agree to follow them >< If you're wondering why my blog is sort of empty it is because I am still working on it and have been busy moving back into residence, but please believe that it will grow ! ><

Hello, I'm Yun'er. It should come as no surprise that I've seen you around the Arashi LJ community circuit, by virtue of the fact that I'm a tremendous fan of Arashi as well. :D I really appreciate the efforts that fans of your ilk put in to subbing, uploading, et al, and I will always respect that by never redistributing or reuploading your work in any way.

I'm not by any means a recognisable name in the fandom mainly because I'm shy about interaction, and not because I'm in any way reluctant to make new friends. Anyway, I've added you, and can only hope I'm in some way interesting enough for you to add me back! Haha.

Hi!! I'm kim from the RP and I was just recently hooked to Arashi. My ichiban is Jun-kun but the others are growing on to me especially bratty Nino and Sho. I promise to never redistribute or repost any of your goodies, anything that i take from you will be for my eyes only. hope you add me back.

hi! First, thank you so much for subbing Arashi videos and sharing them with fellow fangirls! I really appreciate it. My name is Maxi from USA, I just got into Arashi this summer, but I am sucked in deeply into the fandom. Everyday, I have to get my Arashi dose lol. I don't usually use LJ for blogging, but I do comment on other people's entries. I wish we can be friends =D.

I promise to not share or upload or stream your videos. I know that they are for my personal viewing. I won't make any profit out of it. Thank you so much!!

I just stumbled upon your lovely journal and I'm working on expanding my friend list so why not try here too XD

So first of all rules are rules, so I promise to thank you for all the hard work that I will be downloading and enjoying :p and never re-distribe it anywhere!

and I understand your wishes to know the people on your f-list so I will tell you as much as you told us about yourself!

Who are you?
My name is Khawlah but you can call me P-chan or momo-chan ^^ I use my Journal to post my fanfics ;D

2. What do you really do?
I'm a Physiotherapy student (almost done, thank god! T_T) all the time that I don't spend studying, writing or doing out-door activities I'm a compelete Arashi-holic spending my time fangirling and spreading Arashi love ( just this week I got two girls into the fandom XD)

I'd love to know more about you since you are also Nino's fan. oh and I was completely Aiba baited too! XD I knew a girl on vox who has a work mate who is a die hard aiba fan from his junior days too :3

hope to see you on my f-list ^^

Haha I've added you somehow from my earlier new discoveries of the Arashi fandom (end of last year or so?)
and have now come to realize I wasn't courteous enough to even leave a comment (>.<) Sorry.

Random fangirling is a given, it helps me remember that I'm not the only obsessed one out there, despite what my friends claim (T^T) The fandom does that I suppose.

I swear I won't take credit for your translations or post them anywhere else without asking and your subbed videos will certainly only be used for my fangirling, no-profit, pleasure.

Hope to hear from you soon~

Hii~ My name's Fiqa and I'm from Malaysia. I've been an Arashi fan since... 2008, after watching a whole marathon of HYD :D My ichiban is both Sho (and Nino too, recently XD)

I love your translations and subs and I hope you'll add me as a friend back :D As for the rules, of course I'll abide to them ^^ It common courtesy to not redistribute these things :D

Yoroshiku onegaishimasu :D

Hello, nice to meet you.

Hello, my name is Asri. I am from Jakarta, Indonesia. The first time I know about you. Err... Actually I was just browsing in when I found this by accident. So I don't remember again how I could be reach here.
m(_ _)m. (Please forgive if you found some mistake with my words since English is not my mother language and I am just trying hard to speaking).
I am an Arashi fangirl too. I am not sure but I think I ever found about you in Vox?
Even though I am a Sho-chan fan, but I like Jun too. meanwhile my favorite drama of Jun is Gokusen. That's why I feel very happy when I found out one about Jun's interview about Gokusen.
Err... Actually due to of the bad connection of internet link in my place, so I haven't download that yet. But I am just trying to be polite to leave my words whenever I would like to download something BEFORE I really download that. So please don't be mistaken with me. ;^_^;

Hello! My name is Jenna. We spoke in a previous comment somewhere about Arashi no Waza-ari episode 2, to which I was too late to comment back . Hummm... what to say... Although I'm relatively new to the Arashi fandom (I started listening to them around 2008 and just started joining their livejournal communities this year) I've become quite obsessed. My firefox theme is Arashi, my desktop wallpaper is Arashi, my playlist is set to Arashi... well you get the idea, I suppose.

I'm friending you for, of course, the delicious smexy subs you do, but also very much because I would like to make more Arashi friends. On livejournal I have... well, one I guess. And offline I have... three or so. It makes gushing about new Arashi happenings chotto muzukashii.

I promise that I will never repost or redistribute anything you've worked on without your express permission. Stealing is the worst crime ever (see: Kite Runner). Plagiarism and the like bothers me to no end.

So... yeah, if there's anything you'd like to know about me, please don't hesitate to ask. :D Aiba charmed me into the group after I first heard his voice actually (lol, the memories are flooding back!), how did he get you?
