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 I'm nikha! It seems we are the same. I'm aibaby baited too and will always be aibaby wifey. I hope you'll add me back too. I remember I added you long long time ago. I was not active before and if I remember correctly. We were mutual friends before or is it just me thinking that? Before I was really a newbie in lj and that time I always check your blog specially your translation of aibaby's rekomen and nino's baystorm.

Right now, I'm collecting all the subbed videos of aibaby and found one of your links in http://indexjevideos.freehostia.com/ which is Tetsuko no Heya which is aiba as a guest. I wish you'll add me soon coz that show with aiba looks interesting.

I think the same... is important to meet the person first ^^... I will add you to my friends list, come to visit my journal ^^anytime you want. thank you for share your work with all the arashi fans that don´t speak japanese. I really apreciated all the work that you make :D.

Firstly, I hope that you and everybody else in Japan stay safe. Really praying for all this to end soon and for the country to recover. T_T

Anyway, I'm an Arashian for a year and a half now and during that time I've always been stalking and lurking around in journals and comms. xD I've been on this site a number of times and I don't think I've shown my appreciation enough. D: I'm really thankful for all the Arashi stuff you share (especially the Baystorm + Nino-centered things - can't you tell who's my ichiban? xD) and I promise I'm not the ingrate and inconsiderate person who puts up somebody else's subs and translations. >.>

Anyway, I really want to get to know you personally. Actually, I want to make (more) friends in LJ who I can share Arashi fangirling stuff with. You can always drop by my journal - where I write about all kinds of nonsense :)) Btw, in RL I'm a medical student from the Phils and I hope to go to Japan too someday. :D

Hi there,

To be honest, I've added you up before reading this. My bad.

Anyway, my name is Nadiah and my world currently revolves my work and also Arashi. They haven been with me whenever I travel for work so that I don't feel lonely.

As the owner of all the subbed videos that you've released, I respect your work and totally admired it. Therefore, I promise not to redistribute it anywhere and not to use it as my own.

I hope we could be friends. :)

Hi there! I'm Ianne.
I wish your situation there is getting better :)
I've only been in the fandom for a few months and I'm so loving it here.
Masaki is my ichiban but it's Nino's company that I'm most comfortable with. :)

Anyway, I swear not to disrespect your rules. I have high appreciation for subbers and translators.
Without you guys, I will not be able to sustain my daily Arashi needs. Haha.
I wished you'll add me back.

Take care and be strong!

Hello! I would love to be added to your friends :) I'm a huge arashi fan...I only discovered Arashi in January of last year but I seriously love them!! I've seen your posts for Stormy and I love that community and of course all the other communities out there...it's really through them that I become such a fan of Arashi :D yay! I promise that if accepted, I will never redistribute and put your videos on any streaming sites or anywhere. I dl the videos only for personal viewing. I have a friend who subs videos, too, so I've seen how much work is put into it so I don't break the rules. Thanks for the consideration! :D

Hihi! I'm Poh Rong, from Singapore~
I absolutely love Arashi! Image
I was in various fandoms before Arashi, or more precisely, before getting into Jpop, but never have I fangirl for such a long time and fall head over heels for someone/group XD
My friend was like "Your degree of fangirling is as crazy as me already!"
I kept denying although I know it's the truth because I can't accept the fact that I'm as crazy as her cos I'm always saying she's mad XDD
Btw, Aiba's my ichiban, and I can't seem to rank the rest of them! I love them all, just that I love Aiba a little more XD
And omg you're a cellist! That's like so cooollllll! It has always been my dream to learn how to play an instrument but unfortunately, I never succeed, probably because I don't receive proper training/I'm not talented enough? :( I'm in the process of learning how to play the guitar though :D
Music (as well as Arashi XD) is essential for life Image I'm forever envious of people who can play instruments because they're able to produce their own music. Well I can say my instrument is my vocal chords, but that's probably everybody's instrument too right? :/
I'd like to know more about you! But I don't really frequent LJ, probably on Twitter? Hee my username is RARAPONG :)
Ohhh and lastly, I promise to abide by all of yours rules and will definitely not redistribute, reupload or claim any of your work as mine!
Hope you'll consider friending me, thank you! Image

hi there^^

I'm a arashi fan from switzerland and came through JE index on your lj,. I've read your rules and promise do not reshare, repost,rewhatever them. As you can see, my Lj is in german, because I use it only for my german ff's so sadly I don't think you would understand anything on it^^ (it's not about JE fandom) but surly I would'nt be mad if you want to comment on my other entries too (mostly fanarts which my readers make for my FF). I love arashi (and kat-tun and yamapi and toma and kisumai XDDDD) but arashi will always be my first and biggest love^^

thanks in advance for your hard!

I am rachel from singapore. I am a big fan of arashi. Looking at their performances in various areas such as in variety shows and concerts, would brighten me up, beam with joy. It is a sheer bliss to witness their amazement in the showbiz industry.

I have read your rules. i promise i would not repost the links or upload any of your video anywhere. i would only enjoy your videos on my Desktop with my sister. I would not do anything to violent these rules and follow them accordingly.

Yes. I do not update my livejournal with posts everyday. i do not like to blog. But i love to access livejournal as a means to express my thanks to awesome community like you for subbing videos. The arashi fandom would be even stronger with ur existence. I really appreciate ur efforts for subbing. I would defiantely comment to express my gratitude.

I hope you would accept my request to join this community. Thank you

Hi! I'm a fairly new Arashi fangirl from Canada :)
I love the translations that you've made and I'm glad that there you're so passionate about Arashi <33
I don't really have anything on my lj but hopefully I can get to know you better through commenting and fangirling over Arashi XDD
Being a violin/viola hybrid, I really admire that you're a cellist! Though I'm nowhere near professional, I've played for a few weddings with a group of friends and have experienced having my music being blown away many many times lol~~

Hi there! My name is Zay and I am soo glad to find other people who are in love with Arashi like I am. =D
I'm half Japanese which is how I found out about them (in the usual Jun-baited fashion) but I've been living in New Zealand fro the last decade or so.
I made my LJ a while ago but with my University studies so I find it hard to write stuff in it =/
But anyways I think people like you who put so much energy in to subbing and sharing Arashi related videos are amazing! I wish I could contribute to something like this but my lack of technological skills fail me. Which is also why it's a guarantee that I won't redistribute.
Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!
