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~! My name is Joleen~! I really fell in love with Arashi once I found them! (^0^)
I don't write in my livejournal very much, but I do use it once in a while. I promise to follow all of your rules, I really don't know why some people just don't get that the rules are serious ones and to be followed. Anyways, I don't want to end this comment in such a mood, so Thank you in advance for reading this comment and I appreciate it! (^_^)

hello! my name is Tori, from Australia.
Like everybody else (probably><), I'm a fellow Arashi fan. Opposite to you, I was Nino-baited via drama, but now Aiba-chan is my ichiban, haha. I dabble in art/graphics when there's time. More ramblings about me and my artsy stuff can be found in my journal... if you've got time, please check it out! ^^
I find it amazing that you're a cellist~!! :O
I generally miss the '2-days unlocked' thing... but I promise to abide by your rules. I'm definitely an Arashi fan :D I promise to ask permission first if I want to use your translations for anything. And I will keep your subbed works for private use only.
Anyway, I always find it weird when people randomly add me without explanation, so just letting you know: I'd like to keep an eye on your translations and things on my f-list, if that's ok. But! I'd also like to get to know you, be friends and flail together too >w< I understand that you don't add easily, so I hope one day, in the future, we might become friends ~ ^w^
yoroshiku onegaishimasu. m(_ _)m

i am a fellow arashi fan. although i don't speak/read/write japanese so i get my arashi vid fix from wonderful hardworking fan subbers like yourself. i don't expect to be accepted because i don't blog so the only thing that might show up on my profile is comments i've left on people's entries. i've only been a fan of arashi since july of last year. i had a lot of catching up to do and i am still behind long time fans. and i'm still figuring out places to find arashi breaking news. i never reupload or redistribute or link any vids. well, thanks for your time.

Hey, my name is Joanna living in New Zealand and im also a big arashi fan!!!
I promise to follow your rules (asking for your permission before using your translations and not redistributing any of your videos anywhere else).
My LJ is currently blank, because I use this for all my Arashi related stuff (not my personal) >.<
I do comment on other peoples posts and when i download a video off you LJ.
Hopefully you will add me and Thanks for all your hard work.

Hi. I've been really getting into Arashi lately. Unfortunately, I don't speak japanese so i have to rely on fansubs. I hope you will add me back. I promise not to redistribute your work. :)

Heyy~ ^-^

Lol umm.. I know you said "personal LJ" but since the first part (the rules) mentioned something along the line of no-redistribution, I'll just address that first >.<
I will never redistribute any of your work/claim it as my own/stuff to that effect. As a subber myself, I can relate to how you'd feel and how it can affect you .

Okay, now on to addressing the personal part (lol am I already confusing you? I just wanted to separate the tones according to how you structured your post XD)
I should have said this from the start, I'm Hannah, Nice to meet you ^-^
I've seen you around quite a bit and I loved your scans from before, well, all those things happened. Lol I don't know if you remember but I once commented about not taking scans much and I still don't, but I do take the occasional cute photo shoot XD

Uh.. what else.. ah, yes, I mentioned I'm a subber. I'm a part of sora_takaku if you're familiar with it but I do sub and release stuff on my LJ so its not empty, but not too full either. I don't know if my f-list will like too much flailing but there are a few flails and my releases are half-flail posts anyways >.< (Lol just check out any one of them and you'll see what I mean xD)

Hmm.. I've also tried listening to baystorm and recomen thanks to your translations but I guess I'm more used to subbed vids instead of manually scrolling text. Then again, with radio shows, you do get more "inside" info XD Esp cute stories near b'days and anniversaries and stuff haha =D

Oh, and I was gonna PM you about this but since I felt like introducing myself anyways, I thought I'd post here instead XD
I remembered that there were quite a few of Oh-chan's discovery being subbed onto a vid with a slide-show of his pics as a background and hardsubbed with the translations of what he's saying. (If I'm being confusing again, this is what I'm referring to ---> http://dvampyrlestat.livejournal.com/25765.html)
I wanna try doing this for either Recomen or Baystorm so that hopefully, more ppl will listen in (esp if they're like me about manually scrolling the text XD)
It would be really great if I could use your wonderful translations for this project and since there are so many of them, I was also wondering if you could point me towards a few really interesting ones I could start off with.
If this does happen, I don't know how long it'll last since it'll depend on the response I get but it'd be great to give it a try!

Well, that's all for now. My, my, I'm so sorry I've rambled on a bit. Please do tell me if I've been too confusing XD
Yoroshiku ne~
(*ahem* I just realised that I've added you, must be from a while back XD I'm so silly I keep forgetting these things but if I have introduced myself, count this as part 2 XD)

Dear Emkay. Err... I don't want to bother you. But actually I was looking for the subbed video about MatsuJun interviewed about his cast as Sawada Shin in Gokusen. I was downloaded it last time, when there is sudden black out in my place >_<.
Of course I have to re-download from the start. But sadly, I lost the link to that part and can't find it until now. So, could you tell me where is the link?
Please, I really interested for watching MatsuJun concerns his cast his Sawada Shin. The one thing that I remember is that in the screencaps that his appearance as Sawada Shin in that interview.
I am really looking forward for your reply and thank you so much before. m(_ _)m

Hello! I want to be your friend partially because you're an Arashi fan and Nino is your favorite, which automatically puts you in the upper echelon of people in this world, and also because you sub stuff and share it, which automatically makes you nice. I like nice, awesome people! I will admit that I'm also curious as to why your journal name is amnosxmatsujun when you were baited by Aiba and your favorite is Nino. Why is that? Is it because MatsuJun is a giant squishy for all of his bandmates equally and you are thus imagining a world where every one of them gets a MatsuJun of his very own? Because that would be a fantastic world that we should all strive to live in.

As for me, I'm a major Nino-fangirl who does love the band as a whole, although I currently am having difficulties in my Ohno-love (aka I recently watched DnA 51 for the first time and it became very hard for me not to be furious with him over minor things), and I usually am turned into a bowl of schmoopy gloop just by any of their voices or pictures alone. I'm also proud of my fangirl-ness, because I firmly believe that Arashi works hard enough to deserve it, and more. Personally, I'm a college student in Eastern America, soon to graduate and hoping to become a high school teacher.

Anyway, I'm perfectly okay putting up with Arashi rambles. As you can see, especially if you go on my journal, I often do the same (although my posts have been Jdrama-reflection-heavy recently). I'm also more than willing to abide by your rules and would never share anything I had gotten from you, because that's just rude. Anyway, it would make me really happy if you wanted to be my friend! :D

Hello there my name is Heera and I am a hardcore Arashi fan like yourself, I live and breath Arashi 24/7! I came across your journal because I was on the hunt for the making of Ao No honoo and that led me here but it appears that your posts are f-locked. In any case, I read over your rules and if accepted as your friend, I will certainly abide by them. I promise to not redistribute your subbed files anywhere and if i am to use any of your translations I will let you know first, but the videos are for my own personal pleasure only :D. As a fellow Arashi fangirl i would love to get to know you as well so we can become friends and for that to happen, I'll tell you a bit about myself here. You already know I adore Arashi, so moving on, my ichiban is Aiba-chan because I actually believe that this guy is made of rainbows and butterflies and sunshine lol because no matter how bad my day might be going, once I see him doing something, it will instantly cheer me up, he's like my happy pill xp. Also, I'm from Canada and am in my first year of university. But as of right now though, instead of graduating and finding a good job, my biggest goal is to get into an Arashi concert :D. Ahaha, well I hope you accept me and we can get to know each other better, Bye!

Hello there! I was browsing [livejournal.com profile] onlyarashifiles for HnA files and saw your link.

May I be added so I can DL some of your files? Of course I won't use them other than personal viewing and fangirling. I promise this. And as for how can you trust a stranger's words, I'm betting my membership in other Arashi community.


Thanks in advance! ^_^

hi! Emkay, isn't it?
i just checking my Friend's page just now when I came to your Baystorm's translation..
thanks for that... and then, i came through your journal...
Where are you from?
I'm Mayah from Malaysia... one of my friend called me Miya, that's make me happy..
Actually I am Nino fan since 2005 but during that time, i didnt even know anything about Nino..
my campus at that time got no internet connection in the hostel, so it's quite difficult...
then on 2008, luckily we could assess the web through wireless... this is when i started to know about Nino and Arashi... Yokatta!... being an Arashi fan is a wonderful experience for me...
because honestly i never liked any Boy band or male singer/actor in my countries or outside... i think this is the first group I love... (sorry if there are ant wrong grammar, i'm definitely not very good with english)
I want to know more Arashi fan too.... i hope i can meet all Arashi fan and share our love for them...
about my journal, probably u cannot see any post... my campus life is very tiring recently and i dont know what to post although i have the desire...sorry for that...
long story huh...so, let's be friend (dont know what is the proper way to say this)...Doozo yoroshiku...

'bout me, I'm a fan from Vietnam, and is a new fangirl ^^. Saying I'm Arashi's fan, it's more like I'm Nino's fan. Just because I love Nino soooo much, and Just because Nino love Arashi so much, then I love Arashi.
Ah, but I do truly love their TV shows, cuz they're so fun and exciting, and there again, in those shows, Nino is the cutest of all other members, and of all the time of Nino lol

Hi there, my name is Jee! :D I've stumbled across your LJ because of your subbed videos, and I'd love to add you as a friend! I'm a huge fan of Arashi (and pretty much all of the other JE groups), so extreme fangirling is warmly welcomed! ^^ I love Arashi to bits and pieces, so we'd get along just fine! XD

As far as your translations go, of course I will PM you first if I ever feel the need to use them! :) I also pinky promise never to redistribute any of your subbed videos in any way. I'll respect all the rules that you have set out. :D

My LiveJournal will appear blank to you... However, if you check my profile stats, I've posted over 1,000 entries by now! ^^" My apologies... Everything is private-locked. I hope this doesn't affect your decision to add me back! Thank you for your time! :) xoxo
