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 my name is Imari, I'm 16, obsessed with Arashi (duh) BUT! There is one thing I love more than Arashi and that is, (I shouldn't say "that" since its a person) and that person iiiiis SAKURAI SHO!
Yes, I have spectacularly fallen for the newcaster, chimpmunk, fail-boy :)

Anyways. I hope You will add me back when you have the time!

By the way, you are a translator out side of the fandom? Do you mean it's your job? If it is can you PLEASE help me get started? I really want to be one in the future.. haha sorry this is long.

Ok really BYE!

Hello! I'm Emily~ I'm a bit new to lj (well, I've had one for a while but it hasn't been since recently that I've started using it... >_>) and I've been going online looking for new friends that share my interest, Arashi~ <3 I love Arashi and have been a fangirl for roughly two years now 8D So I was wondering if you'd please add me~ Um... I don't know what else to say... So if you have any questions, just ask! \:D/

Hellohello! Don't know if you recognise me but it has been some time since I commented =X
Anyway, just to introduce again, I'm Poh Rong from Singapore! You can call me Poh :DD

1. Extreme fangirling (for Arashi, of course) can occur at any time. You have been forewarned. XD
2. As a consequence of #1, you absolutely must love Arashi, too. This is a BIG deal.

I'm up for this anytime! Available for spazzing 24/7 XDDD Okay maybe not that exaggerated, but whenever I'm free and not sleeping LOL XD

I won't redistribute anything for profits, pleasure whatever. I understand the hard work put into all your releases and I will abide by your rules :)

Hee and I just found out that you have unlocked posts(not those on projects updates)! Yeah I know I fail so hard XDD I always thought f-locked journals do not have more than a page and erm, never saw the "Previous 5 Entries" button until just now HAHAHAHA Image I guess this means you'll see me lurking around more often Image

Hi, there.
I hope you don't mind if I add you. ^__^ I am Arashi fan from Thailand and you can call me Pennie. I used to be in KAT-TUN fandom in particular one JE group but after I watched Arashi 's dramas and so many variety shows, finally I got into them as well. ^^ I became their fan just over a year. My favorite member is Aiba-chan. (Of cause, I love them all, although my ranking is always changing. ^^) Through your subbed and translations, I really appreciate all your hard work. Thank you for all arashi's love you share with us. I've read all your rules and promise to abide by them. I'll absolutely do keep everything for personal enjoyment. :D

Thanks in advance. ^__^

Hey there! I've just found you recently on an index... XD
I originally came to say... "I promise I won't repost or sell any of your vids!"

But now I'm in the mood to try and make another friend. ^^;;

Okay, I'm Andie from the Philippines, full-time student, part-time slacker, and a FULL-TIME FANGIRL. So when I add you, no, I wouldn't mind the excessive hyper fangirling. We're all guilty of that, and it's actually fun to spazz with a fellow rainbow follower. XD It's alright if you don't add me instantly. I understand that you need more time in... "reality". :P

I can see your Nino bias. I'm Nino-biased too~ I even dream of him >:3

Oh and one more thing. YOU'REACELLISTWOWTHAT'SSOAWESOME. I'm not being sarcastic! I don't play the cello myself, but this is cool!! 8Db

See ya around! ^^

Arashi love

Yo! Yes I am a huge Arashi fan. What sucks is NONE of my friends are into Arashi or any of the JE fangirling as I am. So Livejournal is my only escape to awesomeness. Arashi is my favorite group period. I promise to abide by all your rules. No posting, redistributing, uploading, etc. Please add me. My journal is quite slim but I assure you I'm on here like everyday. Thanks for your hard work! :D

I already haz hamburger hands xD
*random statement is random*
Anyways~ I found u bc of waza ari~ and well I'll be honest that was my main reason but wow u seem so nice x3 now I kinda totally want to fangirl with u xD (hope I don't sound creepy xD)
(not that I'm this surprised but u know I didn't know what will await me a private person or a community~ and most friends only/intro/rules post are just somehow more eh well just not that bright xD I guess u don't know what I mean so I will stop now xD;;;;;;;;)
Anyways~ u can call me yuki x3 I'm from germany and 21 years old~ and beside fangirling I'm just simply working haha but wow u are a cellist~ that's so amazing~ I totally admire ppl who can play instrument (nino <3) and well I'm totally open for much fangirling <3 especially in comments xD I always kinda worry bc I don't know if ppl are ok with their comments growing and growing bc of the convo but since u said u are ok with it I wont worry *-*
And yeah I write rly chaotic lol sorry xD; and I'm super random~ especially while talking about arashi <3
speaking of arashi~ well I guess u already figured I'm a fan of them xD and my ichiban in Nino <3 (I take a risk and say ur too xDDD well u already said u are xD) and sho is following close by x3 wow aiba baited!? that is indeed rly rare x3 most of them are jun baited haha~ and wow since the jr days~ that is simply amazing °_° u are so very loyal~ haw I kinda wish I would have known them by then too >-<
Well and now I totally forgot what else I wanted to say...uhm..well my journal is not that much used bc I mostly just spam my twitter~ and use my lj just all few month to write something new xD; I don't even have a proper layout >< but I hope u won't mind ><;;
So and I should stop now bc I bet that will be a pain to read xD;;
but before~ ur ''put up withs''
I love fangirling <3 so I don'T mind makes it easier for me to comment x3
I totally love Arashi <333333
Well I guess that won't happen but if I want to use some of ur translations I of course will aks u first x3
I promise not to stream redistribute or claim ur subbed videos~ (of course not since I'm way to grateful someone is doing subs for us non japanese speaker TT)
well 5 + 6 guess no need to repeat myself xD and since I comment I guess it's not considered as random add ?
Again sorry for this chaotic comment I kinda fail at such things and always just throw in what is on my mind xD;; I hope I didn't forget anything important and well~
Ah btw (and here I go again still not finished xD;;;) ur user name and layout is so not matching xD totally awaited matsujun everywhere xD but I'm glad it's nino <3 (not that I don't like matsujun xD)
So but now for real~ owari!

Hi!! I have been an Arashi fan for years!! I think all of them are ssoo cute but I adore Aiba-kun<3 I've read all of your rules and would like to add you as a friend. I think your journal is awesome. I live in Japan now and I am trying to learning Japanese. If you have any tips, I'm all ears. Have a good day :)

I read your rules and I perfectly agree with you. You should get to know people before accepting someone as a friend. It's better if you know them personally.
To be honest (please don't think I'm BS-ing, I'm serious!) this entry was pretty cool, and I woudn't want to be friends with just because you sub videos (I do that no and again with communities).
You seem like a busy person but the write says a lotta bout you (seriously)
I am a huge fan of Arashi (MatsuJun~ heart-fluttering fangirl moment) and have been for a good five years.
I would like to get to know you better too!

Hi Emkay. I love Arashi too. I promise to follow all your rules here. I'm Therry from Philippines. I was Jun-baited, and up to now, I think my ichiban is still Matsujun. But most of the time, I'm feeling like I am already leaning towards Nino. But I love all of them, so it doesn't matter to me who is my ichiban. :D
I am really new to Arashi fandom. I'm loving them even more now. :D

I hope we can be friends. :D Nice to meet you. :D

I add you, hope you can add me back. I'm new in LJ so, hope you don't mind if you find my LJ blank (not blank actually, I just don't know what to write there but I'm trying..)

Btw, I will follow your rule up there..

Hi! I'm Pat from the Philippines and I consider myself as a hardcore Arashi/Ohmiya fan. ♥

I'd like to say thank you for the subbing efforts and for allowing us non-Japanese fans to be able to understand the humor that is uniquely Arashi.

P.S. I promise to abide by the rules such as no uploading to streaming sites, redistribution and claiming the subbed videos as mine. Also, the videos would be for personal viewing purposes only. :) Thanks!
