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! =D I'm Anna! I'm Swedish and a complete Arashi fangirl. Sho is my ichiban! -points at icon XD-

In fandom I write fanfic and crack up to Arashi vids. :) And then I write more fanfic, because I get inspired. And then I watch vids, just because. And so the cycle continues. XD

Of course I promise to follow your rules for videos, I will not redistribute your videos or in any way use them without your permission. My plan is to just watch them, actually. :)

I've become Arashi Fangirl since 2,5 years ago..
I add you, could you add me back please?
I promise i will never redistributed or reupload your video.
I will always asking you first if i want to use any of your translation.. but, to be honest I rarely make any translation into something.. Usually i only use them for my personal use.
Thank you very much.

You're one of Stormy's translator, right? How could people don't know you? :p
I also a translator for one of small Arashi fansubbing team (FANRASHI). I tend to check on other translator works to improve my translation works :p
I also a paper crafter and I found out that blogspot is more convenience for me to share my works. That's why I only use my LJ for updating the list of mt team's works. Gomen ne... ^^;;

But I think it's very nice to be able to know you. Happy New Year and have a nice day... ^^

I would be arisadraconis@twitter who just tweeted you not long ago~ Now that I've read this post please do ignore that one request~

My name is Arisa and I'm another normal (some of my friend said that I'm weird though XD) Arashi fan :) I know you from Stormy and seriously? Who wouldn't know you by now? XD You've posted and shared a lot of things on lj and I've only realised now that I'm not on your list :(

Anyway please do take your time when it comes to getting to know me, I don't mind waiting for a long time~ I am also on Jeffer's list and I would love to talk to another Arashi fellow fan :)

Eh, I can't remember if I have or haven't commented here. Hope u don't mind reading mine twice.

I came here from the list in we-make-storm.lj, but I think I've seen you in yt. If I am not mistaken, though.

And about the rules. I promise to not redistribute everything you share to anywhere as well as to not claim yours as my own.

Please approve.
Thank you!

hello! my name is Kat and I am a big Arashi fan from the Philippines. I SUPER DUPER LOVE ARASHI! But Nino and Sho are my favorites among them. <3 also, I think Riida combined with each member is superb ;)

I have been a fan just since May of 2010. I started to become one after I watched Hanadan. (Yes, I was really addicted to it that I end up watching it countless times :O especially season 2 :D) I watched their performance of Love So Sweet in their Summer 2006 concert and then, my love for them continues from there! They have been my motivation and inspiration in my studies. some of my friends suddenly became jealous because I always end up going home, downloading their videos instead of hanging out with them. hahaha. But now, I was able to balance my time with them and with Arashi. ;D

I download their videos (mostly, the subbed one) EVERYDAY because I am not contented not seeing or watching new ones each day. Haha. I also have friends that have been arashi fans way before I became one. There are times that we also do fangirling. :)

I think there are a lot of fans from the Philippines and we really hope that they will know about it. I'M DYING TO SEE ARASHI. I'm also considering to be an exchange student in Japan just so I can see them. Hahaha. It's been my dream to go to Japan. :(

I hope you'll consider my request! I PROMISE that I will not reupload, distribute or do anything that will disrespect you and your rules. I have been like that to all the communities I am a member of and I can asure you that your files are safe with me. :D

God bless and more power! ;)

My name's Sou, I come from Vietnam.
I've loved Arashi for 2 yeras. Certainly, I'm an Arashi's fangirl.
And... my english is bad, so I do no have enough knowledge of english to write a relly good comment for you T_T But I want to be your friend, seriously. The reason ? I just want to have more and more friends is a Arashi's international fan. You're the first one. ;)

I will follow the rules with all my heart!
I swear that I will not repost somoene else's videos.
I'm a subber too, for Vietnamese Arashi, so I understand your rules clearly.
Nice to meet you ;)
See your rely soon.

holaaa...i really can see that ure crazy about Nino :)) My name is Rie from Indonesia. I've been an Arashi fan for a few months now, started around August last year :p I really wish you can add me back eventho my LJ is blank :( i thought several times about writing something in it but i still havent found anything interesting to post yet :D

But i really really wish you can add me back and share everything you know about Arashi :D

Hello all

Hello, my name's Evorian, I have been Arashi's fan from 2004, which means about 7 years. I wish I would know them earlier but after 7 years I still think Arashi is the best group out there. I do like other Japanese singers and groups, but so far I find Arashi the best.

A little about myself:
I study Japanese right now and looking forward to be a future fansubber or at least able to watch Arashi shows unsubbed. Among Arashi, I find Sakurai Sho the best. Why? Because he can fit so well in any situations, like being a baka, being cool, being serious, being funny, he can do it all. I also like Ohno because he is really talented at whatever he does.

I am part of alot and I mean alot of LJ community, however I don't use LJ that much. Instead I use forums for Arashi discussion, I also like to comment on youtube, my name there is Ayumirashi. However I want to find a place to discuss at LJ too, I have commented at Azuleanna's and Angeldevils' LJ as I think they are the best fansubbers so far and of course Cuticle's LJ.

As I said, I'm in part of many Arashi fansub communities therefore I really know the rules really well and of course I don't wish to spread the materials I downloaded so the sites won't be closed and the fansubbers will get in to trouble. I have a hard disk with 300gigabyte of Arashi tv shows and dramas, concerts and various performances. I know none of them is mean to distribute nor re-uploaded anywhere else, unless you tell me to do so.

I don't know if I should be typing more, I dont know if you even read this all, but I can basically talk about Arashi all day so add me and we should talk more ^^

Aaah, dear Amnosxmatsujun. Well, I guess I could call you Emkay, right? ^^;; I missed your 48-hr deadline for your latest subs! Aaah... And that makes me realise just how much I am missing on right now, in the area of your subbed projects. And so, that has made me consider writing here, because of course I would wish to access your entire subs history (of course!), but at the same time, I won't lie to you that I do feel uncomfortable. I could play the game "Do you want to be my friend? Let's be LJ friends!", but I would feel like intruding in your private life. That is your private LJ after all! And you would too have access to the most private side of me, or my LJ-locked entries (ooooh~~;P). It's a two-way thing, really.

But I WAS thrilled to hear you are a cellist (Wow... that is sort of my dream instrument, seriously! O_O), and you have intrigued me before, and you come across are a very approachable, absolutely nice person, so, I wouldn't say no to learning to know you. But at the same, I live in "busy/hiatus" town since last fall almost. I neglect my closest LJ friends! They are aware of my situation, and understand my sporadic visits and "hello, how have you been?"s, but my being busy and more or less present on LJ would give a person with whom I am not intimate a rather poor and unfortunate impression of who I am. So... I dunno. I'm been postponing leaving a comment here because of this reason. I understand how we want to know our f-list--that is why I keep mine so small!--, so, I'm thinking I might not fit in your requirements. Even though I have visited your journal already. Even though I would of course respect your work by downloading only for private viewing use. That just goes without saying. So, basically, I'm writing to you, hoping to get some positive feedback, but expecting a more realistic "thank you for your interest, but you aren't quite the profile I am looking for" reply. ^^;;

In any case, thank you for all the sharing and lyrics translating, radio program translating, and subs, both here and within the subbing comms. <3 :D *And goes back to working on a paper*
