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 azu-chan^^
I wanna introduce myself
You can call me bigghost and I'm from Viet Nam
Arashi is a first group i become a fan. In 2007, i knew those boys when i watch Music station, they sang Love so sweet, but i'm not a type like showbiz much. I like game, manga and anime, sometime listen a little music. And my destiny came, in 2009, my sister's friends introduce me about Arashi, i knew them but i'm not interested. suddenly i change my mind because of Tokyo friend Park SP. So.... you know it.... this is it.. this time i started like Arashi and i found everything about them.... tada~ My life change... almost time Arashi, Arashi everyday and only Arashi ( sometime little for something i like before) fufufu~. but shame on me, i don't know who is my ichiban, all of them always create great almostphere, i love their friendship, that's the way take me to Arashi, because i not like and not interested in showbiz much, but Arashi is different, they're friends, yes and I love all of them , i love Arashi-chan ~^^~ ...
I hope we can be friends ^^
And of course, I promise to follow them. You can trust me
ps: Nice to meet you

hello Emkay-san, my mane is Lissete from Perú
My love for Arashi started 2 years ago in a very difficult stage of my life, so they mean a lot to me (you could say that I owe them my life). Unfortunately in my country there is limited information about Arashi (I am very grateful to the internet), I depend so much on the communities and the good people who share their information. I have in my journal some translations and subtitled videos, some are private and other public (so somehow I understand you).
I promise to follow the rules and do not distribute any of your materials.
You said you normally delays approve these applications, I have no problem with that.
I really hope we can get to know
bye bye (I'm sorry, I tend to talk too much)

Hi, my name is Maxie. I'm a university student in the states. I've known of Arashi for a few years but I became addicted to them (so addicted) just this past year! I have over 200 gb's (and counting) of their files and videos (that's a little fanatic >.<). Nearly all of my bookmarks consist of Arashi. I am extremely incredibly into them. I would love it if I can be added to your list of friends. I love to fangirl over Arashi and anything related to them. My livejournal is not super active because I use blogspot as an actual blog. However, I do comment on communities and everything. I would like to get to know you better as well =D. I love your translations, the Nino translation that you just did was wonderful. My mood today has been lifted so much just by reading that article. Arashi is like my daily happy pill.

I am a new arashi fan and i would really like to have access to your subbed videos. I SWEAR to NEVER redistribute your videos on any site anywhere. I would also ALWAYS ask for permission before i use ANY of your translations. I think that it is a great idea that you want to get to know people and befriend them first before you decide to allow them to view your videos.

I am new to live journal so i don't have that much on it right now, but i am working on it. I also do not have that many friends on live journal and i would like it if you would be my friend :) One of the resons i joined live journal was because i wanted a place to obsesse and to meet people like you, so i can relate to your fangirlness :3 But cause i jsut recently started liking arashi i am not at your level of fangirlness yet xD

Thank you for all of your hard work, i hope to hear from your soon!!!

I have read the rules, and I won't do mean evil things since I find people who do those things devils, not that I have a thing against devils, I do like Ohno(Maou was amazing).
Just like you I was Aiba baited, but that was when I watched My Girl, I had heard Truth previously, but My Girl just hit it home for me. Now I shifted.
I realized I should tell you my name, I'm Mango an university student in Canada...I was not lucky enough to see Sho when he was near my town, I was in high school at that point.
If you do add me my journal is full of everyday things revolving around university. I'll patiently wait, since I am good at that xP

helo! i'm dimple from philippines, arashi fan for 23 months already! ;) i found your journal in indexjevideos because i want to download anwa..but i always see your username in the videos i downloaded, i always download so i got to know a lot of subbers timers encoders translators and others which help in subbing.

i do promise to abide with your rules, not to redistribute, give credits, and if i will use your translations i will pm you first and i will give credits. though all my downloads are for personal viewing only :)

Hmm...I've read all your rules and promise to abide by it. The only thing is that I have a blank journal.. >.<
I have no Arashi resources to put in besides the ones in LJ that I could find..gomen! but I really do appreciate and take time to comment on all of the subbers' hard work! I am also a member of several other Arashi communities and please be assured that I've never broken any of their rules!

I've been an Arashi fan for 3 years and am in love with ohmiya..I always try to find their 'not-too-subtle' moments in the background of their regular shows..hehehe. My favourite past time: reading ohmiya fanfics.

So please do consider adding me back as a friend.
Yoroshiku onegaishimasu! m(_ _)m

Hello Chap!
Hah...sorry I'm not British. Or where ever that comes from. I'll be a good girl and not repost anything. 'Cause I know how it feels as I am apart of some subbing groups too. You like to go to your friend's pages and look at them? Where do you find the time with so many friends? Well I don't have much now, but recently I've found posting rants and random stuff very fun. LOL

Well hope we can be friends. =) Yoroshiku ne~

My name is Szilvi (mehi85 in LJ). I’m from Hungary. I’m a cultural manager in my real life and in my free time I like watching Arashi shows and writing fanfics.
I ’m a big Arashi fan. My favourite members are Sho - kun and Aiba – chan, but I like the other members, too. I can feel I’ll love Arashi in my whole life, because they give me pep. If I can see them, I’m happy and forget my worries. In a word they are my happiness.

I would like to join your friends. I promise I’ll follow your rules.

Thanks you in anticipation.

Bye :D
