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

If you don't mind I would like to add you as a friend and I'm going start by thelling you something about me.

I'm a girl from Sweden that, for quite a few years now, loves Japan and many things that comes with it. A few years ago I was introduced to the Japanese music scene through anime. I found that I somewhat liked it though it was not really my genre. Then I started to look up artist and groups that seemed interesting, and soon enough, I was completely hooked.

I've been a huge fan of Arashi for a few years now, I Love Them! I will absolutely follow all of your rules. anything you share with us will not be reposted or redistributed in any way by me. I will only use them for my own personal enjoyment.

Anyway, that was a bit long winded, sorry for that. I'm hoping that all this will not scare you off, and that maybe you will friend me back.

My name is Maxie, I live in Philadelphia and I'm currently a rising junior in college and I just want to tell you thank you! for subbing and translating all sorts of goodies for us fans. Even though I've only been a rapid Arashi fan for about a year (that one boring summer resulted in me dedicating my everyday in finding videos and information about our boys.) As a result, I have now over 400 GB of just Arashi material and everything relates to Arashi. No kidding, when I'm just normally talking to my friends, Arashi will for sure pop up or be related to the topic. For example, mirrors automatically relates to mirrorman, fish= ohno, sofa= the red sofa in Shukudai-kun, chipmunk/ squirrel= sho, etc. The group penetrated into my daily lives and I have to say, I'm happier than ever. They're so cheerful and sparkly and extremely wholesome and I am so proud to call myself a fan even though I haven't been in the fandom for as long as other fans. I'm currently learning Japanese and I hope one day I'll be able to watch an entire Arashi show without subs (but unfortunately, I need subs for now).

I love Arashi and I hope to get to know you better as well! I promise I won't redistribute your works anywhere and they're only for my personal viewing. I promise I won't do anything you don't want with your translated works.

I hope you can add me back!
