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

uh hello there xD
seen you for a while in arashi communities, but I didn't have much time to properly write a comment so XD
wel, um... since my LJ is created mostly to follow the fadom's happenings, and I've already used other things to blog about, like FB, so ... will you consider that and still add me ? just saying though, if you don't it's fine
well, it's time for introduction
I'm Moon (not real name ofc xD), from Vietnam (you may or may not know where it is xDD) , and a fanboy ^__^
would you mind hearing backgrounds on how I came to want to squish them into my hug ? xDD well to put it short I watched Nino's drama in 2007 : YTM ( ok that's too long to even type), and then I fall in love with his acting, and then him and then I know Arashi, and now I love Arashi
ok pretty stupid story ...
I kinda want to become your friend one part because of your amazing videos and clips xD but I also want to know more Arashian ^^ so far I've come to know Arashian in sooo many countries
And it's great to know more, to spread the Arashi baka-ish love xD
I am friends with some subteam ( not staff since I"m too busy this year to do anything sub-related >_<), so I know the rules pretty well. I'll follow it without a miss. And one more reason for following it, I also gets really irritated when things of me is used without permission xD
so, uh ... let's be friends ne :D

Hi :D my name is anushkajan and I'm from the U.S.A. You sound like a really interesting person and please don't let what I just said scare you >//< I am also an arashi-obsessive-fangirling...person? I've loved them to death for over 8 years now? All of them are my number one's but I was...Nino-baited? I loved him a lot in the beginning but now I think I love all of them equally.

Now onto the fun part :) I definitely promise not to repost or redistribute. I tried subbing one time and it was haaaaard!! So to post someone else's work like that as your own or share it somewhere is just terrible :'( makes Nino and me cry!

And Arashi fangirling is an absolute must and will be appreciated when it happens O^O^o So please if you want to add me I would love to listen to your stories. I will even sympathize with you in some cases lol. Sorry this comment is so long >//< also HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

I just read that it's your birthday o(゜▽゜)
And somehow, I found it stupid to say happy birthday at Stormy's entry,
cause maybe you'd not see it XD

I prefer to spam your blog somehow ❤

Happy birthday \(≧▽≦)/ XD

I feel like I said it a lot of times this week XD
It was my friend's birthday, and also Gyarusone's one LOL
I mean, her http://blog.watanabepro.co.jp/gyarusone/index.html XD

And Hayashi Kento yesterday ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

Yay (ノ*≧▽)ノ☆

Thank you again for all the translations you've shared
with the fandom, neeee ヾ(^▽^)ノ

hi! i'm min, and i'm pretty new to this arashi fandom and i'm trying to get my hands on whatever vids i can find cos i can't get enough of them!!! and i'm having a short xmas holiday break now so it'll be a great time for me to watch all the shows :D please add me so i can look at some of your older vids which you have f-locked already.

i promise not to distribute/sell/upload/etc your videos and i'm only downloading them for my own viewing pleasure :) also i will not do anything with your translations without your permission, if i ever use them! i actually sorta linked here thru the zero off air/zerocaster comm :D

i know i have a blank journal, cos i'm not comfortable with putting up personal thoughts and stuff on the web where everyone can see, so my journal entries are private for myself only. i usually update when i need a quick outlet to rant, cos i don't have the habit of writing a journal. i do comment though, if you can see my comments count.

I go by Rii and the arashi storm started just recently for me. I'm active in all other arashi communities so I will do my best to be active here too! I promise to always comment on everything I download and I will not not not not not redistribute your hard work anywhere!!!!!!

Thanks for doing what you do =)

My name is Vaw, I'm from the Philippines. I read your description about yourself and what you do....and by philharmonic orchestra...is it an orchestra based here in the Philippines?
Pardon me if I'm wrong, but I really have no idea about stuff like these. :(
By profession I'm a GP (general physician), I...don't really know if you'll get anything from my lj. As I can not translate nor am I able to get the latest Arashi news. Partly because of the nature of my work and other real life activities.
I would have to admit that I haven't touched my lj for quite some time now as real life demands took me away from my computer and downloading past episodes and watching some a few times a week are probably all that I can manage as of the moment.
Fangirling...hmmm...I don't do it as often anymore because there's so many fangirls who do it. I just read and share their joys. :)
I hope you'd add me as your friend.

thank you! :)
Hope you have a nice day.

Hey there!

I'm Lily and I would love to be added! To be honest: I have a shamefully blank LJ, but there are reasons for that, the main one being that I am about to finish law school come spring and real life takes up too much time for me to post regular updates. I used to blog quite a lot, but even that's out of the question right now - damn case reviews... :( So tend to lurk and watch/read the occasional download whenever I find a moment of time.
BUT: I am a huge Arashi fan - have been since before everyone was Jun-baited by HYD, after watching the first Pikanchi movie in 2003 or 2004, which made me go "wtf?!" and then had me look up Arashi...

Should you decide to add me, I will of course promise to not redistribute, reupload or take without credit any of your stuff (because the lawer in me hates to go against rules likes these and also because I do a lot of translations myself and thus know how much time and effort go into these!). So, please? <3

hello! My name is Liz, and I'm an Arashi fan... I was not Aiba-baited (I was Jun-baited, which is probably something that happens often, I wager), but Aiba is my #1 in Arashi. ^_^ I saw your post in the onlyarashifiles community... Anyway, I admire subbers like you who give so much to the community. Thank you! Without you guys, us foreign-fangirls would be very much deprived. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and if I could add you/you add me? Thanks!

Also, I promise not to re-distribute, re-post, and re-anything of your subbed work. I respect the work you put into it, and it's your work. I also promise not to upload it onto any streaming sites or claim it as my own. Thank you!
