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

Hello there <3
Ruki is my name. I have been an Arashi fan since they celebrated their 10th year. Ohno baited but now I'm more into Nino hehe.
I promise to follow the rules you post.
I really do want to be friends with you because I really do want to fail with another Arashi fan.
It's really fun to have a friend who have the same interest as yours (even though you two have the same ichiban lolz)
I will only view your sub vid for my personal entertainment.
Please consider me as your friend

Hello! ^_^ I came across your LJ from a friend, and I would really like to be added! I would love to see you subs, as well as get to know you since you seem like a really cool person and I always love to meet fellow Arashi fans! I promise to abide by all your rules. ^^

A little about myself, well my name is Lilly or Riri and I'm 20 years old from America and a university student studying Japanese.I'm only intermeddiate level but my dream is to be fluent, so therefore I have a HUGE respect for fansubbers. XD Japanese is a complicated language to learn! I'd love to give back to the fandom by subbing stuff myself someday. I got into the JE fandom by first being a fan of NEWS and eventually KAT-TUN as well, but after discovering Arashi they very quickly became my main fandom. I was Sho baited which turned into a short lived obsession with Sakuraiba pair, but after watching a bunch of Shukudai-kun episodes Matsujun stole my interest. XD But as you said, the magic only happens when all five of them are together.

That was a little long, so I apologise for the tl;dr XD It's great to meet you though and hopefully we can become friends. Yoroshiku! (^o^)b

I read your fanfic before, but I had no idea that you also subbed =p, until I browsed through only arashi files and found your post!
I'm a newbie in the fandom, that's why I'm clawing my ways every where, to get to know them better. Before this, I'm a fan of Tohoshinki, if you track my journal, you'll see some THSK fanfic. (But then they had to break up and broke my heart T_T)
I'm looking forward to appreciating your hard work, よろしく おねがいします! I won't ever take it anywhere else, promise!!

PS: I really envy you!! My dream is being a translator/ interpreter, but it seems impossible at this point >.

Hello there! I'm unsure of what I should say, I'm extremely shy in making friends you see.
But I'd love to get to know you more. :)
And also I'd like to see your subs. It is disrespectful to take credit for something you've never work for that's why I will never redistribute your stuff, as a respect to you and as a respect to myself as well.

I'm sorry if this is all I could say at the moment, but please accept my invitation.
Thank you and may you have a nice day :)

By the way, you can call me by my username, ianne.
And yes, yes, I do love Arashi so much. :)

Hi! I'm Lia. I've only been an Arashian for less than a year..that's why I wanna meet more Arashian coz from where I am I dont know if there are Arashians. Arashi was introduced to me by a schoolmate in HS who moved to Japan. she said I should watch Arashi's shows. and I search that lead me to LJ..and I saw how BIG ARASHI is..and loved them so0 much!

as for your work (translating/subbing) I promise I wont redestribute it coz that'll mean I steal it..I will sure to keep it for my personal use only. though I want to know more about you.. =)

hope you add me back..thanks..

I 'discovered' your LJ through one of your translations. Then I read that this is a personal lj, not an only-translations one, so I'd like to add you ^^ I always love to meet Arashi's fans, we can fangirl togheter XD

Something about me (because I've discovered your journal recently, so I haven't commented anything).
So, I'm Federica (but on the internet I'm simply Rosa^^) and I'm from Italy. This is why, in my LJ, all fanfictions are in my mother language... I'd like to translate some of them, but it takes time, and I don't have it XD But other entries (= fangirling) are in english, because I want to improve it!
I'm a crazy Arashi fan since early 2009, and my favourite one is that sunny miracle of Aiba-chan (but really, I love them all). I also like other JE groups (especially Kanjani8, I love them), and few other groups, but so far, Arashi is the best group ever.
I also like Japanese and Korean dramas/movies and actors XD (in this period I'm obsessed with Takeru Sato).
I'm at the second year in university, where I'm studying law. But I wanna also learn japanese, because in the future I'd like to work at the italian embassy at Tokyo.
So I envy you a bit (no, not only a bit... I envy you A LOT) because you know this language, and also because you know Arashi since their Jr. period. I wish I've known them since that period too!

Obviously, I promise to not redistribute, claim as mine etc, your translation and your subbed videos. I respect and love too much fansubbers to do such thing >.<

I hope we can be friends (and sorry for some mistakes... as you can see, my english is not so good ^^'')

I'm Polina and i'm from Ukraine) Almost 2,5 years ago i've become an Arashi-fan** what's unusual i'm not Jun-bait although the fist drama that i've seen was Hana Yori Dango) it took me a while to start listenin' and get interested in Arashi. and only after Yoiko no mikata i've understood that they've become special for me^^ btw my ichiban is Sho-chan and that would never change**
besides Arashi i like others Johnnys too) the most interesting for me r KAT-TUN, Jin and Ikuta) recently i've found out about such groups like C.N.Blue and Fahrenheit~ but all of them share only the second place in my personal chart (if i can say so)~

about ur rules: i would definitely follow them, 'cause i know how hard it is to translate *) so u may be sure that u won't see any repost or sth like that

yoroshiku, ne?^^

I came across your LJ because of the Recomen translations. I enjoyed them very much.
I'd like to add you as my friend and hope you'll add me back as well.
The important stuff: I'll follow your rules, promise :).
About me, I was Jun baited (though I know Arashi since they're debuted, but they looked so chibi back then) because of Hanadan, but after I saw My Girl, I happily jumped ship to Aiba boat haha...
Besides Arashi, I also like V6.

Hi! My name is Julia, I'm 19 (almost 20, woah I'm getting old XD), I'm a barista in a supermarket here where I live. I found you through stormy, and I got curious about you. I've been an Arashi fan since mid 2009 (just after Everything came out). I was Junbaited, as a lot of fans are, because of Hana Yori Dango. I stayed because of Aiba though. :3 I'm an extreme fangirl too, so I welcome any and all fangirling. :D I'd really like to get to know you as a person, you seem really nice and friendly. :)
Of course I would never redistribute your subs in any way, shape, or form.

Hi, I don't know if I commented or not but it doesn't hurt that I introduce myself again just in case. I'm ginger, I'm in Spain (for limited time since it seems I'll be moving to UK). I've been a fan for, well, in no time will be a year! Time flies!! I don't mind total fangirling about the boys because that's why I do in my journal all the time. In fact I encourage it and cherish it.

I understand that you decide to keep everything in your journal because I do the same. I am not a translator, I wish I was able to, but I hope that time will come. For now I only make artwork, magazines and photobook hq scans and just started with (no good) fics. I deeply admire people like you that take their time to sub videos and share the love for the boys! You don't know how much means for fans, at least to me!!! Thank you!!!!
As it's a generous gesture that takes time and effort the least we can do is follow your rules because it's your work what you're sharing. I promise following the rules you set for your videos or whatever work you do and post.
Other things that may be of interest to you: I discovered JE because of Takuya Kimura and SMAP. I've been a fan of them since 2004. I knew Arashi since then but didn't fall in love with them til last year (I'm so ashamed of that! and so sad I missed so many things live!) However the fact that I've been discovering them now it's really fun because as I've mentioned I have Arashi non-stop in my mind of fangirl!

I started studying Japanese years ago but had to stop and I started again at the end of last year. Therefore, my Japanese is still not good but I hope to improve it as quickly as I can. Any tip on how I can improve it faster, it's appreciated!

Hope to get to know you as a fellow fan and have fun! Thank you!

Hi there, I'm Giulia and I'm Italian. I'm 24 years old and I'm a huge Arashi's fan.
I totally like them, because they're so good singers and actors. I study Cinema at University so I love see their dramas, and I love the 'making of'.
I arrived at your journal because I was searching for Ao no Honoo - Making of, and I really hope you'll add me back.
I promise I'll follow all your rules. I really respect you for what you do.
Thanks to you people are able to watch and understand things that they wouldn't never understand… Then I can’t see the reason why I should do something that would make me unable to follow the guys.
Then I'd like to see new videos and be able to know better Arashi.
So, I hope you'll add me back.
Have a nice day!
