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! I am a BIG Arashi fan! I write down an index of all Arashi related videos I've seen. So I calculated recently that I've watched since 3 years ago around 1080 videos!!! So yeah, I'm obsessed of them at that point. Anyways, all that to say that I wish I can join your community to watch more of our beloved Arashi and assist you with your fangirling ^^

I also promise that I will never EVER distribute your videos in any way. I watch Arashi for my pure enjoyment!
Thank you very much!

konnichiwa! can i use nick name? I'm inin, that's really my nick name since birth .haha. I am a toma addict, but I love matsu jun. I have just watched gokusen recently due to my tight sched, (late bloomer). Regarding with your rule no. 5, that is my big problem! I have a blank Lj, actually, I've been using LJ almost 3 yrs already, but still I don't know how to do it. sounds pathetic. all I have been doing is commenting other entry. thanks for consideration. ^_^

I'm a recent fan of Arashi and I've started to discover the personality of each members.
I love to watch them during variety shows because they are so funny!
And I also love to watch them singing and dancing, they are so professional and amazing.
I've discovered your lj through Arashi subbed videos index "We Make Storm" and I would be very happy if you would share your work with me.
I won't share, redistribute or sell your work and I will only watch your videos subbed for my personal viewing.
I'm very thankful towards you for all the work you do for us who can't understand Japanese.

"Kiiiiinn~!"Good Night!Nice to meet you!My name's Midori and I'm from Brazil [actually living in New York City].To start with,how did I found you?!I looove Arashi Magazine Translations and I saw your Lj at [http://jennlyy.livejournal.com/],and then I saw that you also translate BayStorm and Recomen!!!YATTAAAAAAAAA~Sugee na?!Maji de...I alwaaaays lookedd for it,seems like nobody in this universe translate BayStorm...that was too sad to me,since I don't understand japanese [although I'm a nissei...yeah,I KNOW!SHAME ON ME!].
I've been an Arashi Lover for about 3 years,though I know then for almost 6 years...but at that time I wasn't properly a fan...it started with Ninomiya and his drama "Stand Up!",and then I couldn't stop myself to pay attention to those 5 awesome guys,the ones who never fails to make me laugh;because of that Nino became my ichi [I love his acting,his MORE column,his love towards Oh-chan,in resume,I love his bratty personality and his peculiar way of being...our "Eternal 17"!];and that's why I created my Lj account two months ago,to share my Arashi Love♥
Aside from being an Arashi/Ohmiya♥ Lover,I'm an electrical engineer,I work with electric projects...I also play piano [but just as a personal hobby huauhauha].
I understando the reasons for your Lj being a 'semi-friends only'...because myLj is also 'friends only'!And I'm sure our reasons are quite the same...
Then,since the interest on all your stuffs it's mine,I give you my word that I WON'T REDISTRIBUTE,SELL OR UPLOAD YOUR MATERIALS!I hope we can get along well!I'll be waiting to be added...patiently huahuauha!
Have a nice week,KissHugs!Ncha♪

HI! I'm Rai from Vietnam, a 22 years old uninteresting Arashi fangirl that lurks around.
I added you as my friend and I would really be happy if you could add back :)

Well, it almost marks the third year anniversary to when my Arashi obsession started. I'll admit, I was Jun-baited in, but now after those years of rainbow crack, I can say that I'm truly a huge fan of each member. They each bring such a unique quality to the group that I don't know how you can help but love them. It may sound silly, but they really have inspired to me to try harder in so many things. :)

All of your work I promise, I'll respect and obey all of your rules.
About my LJ. .. I seldom post something about myself because ... I'm just .. not the blogger type i guess :"(

Hope to hear from you soon :)

hello!! :))
Gent desu~ major Arashi fangirl ; Ohno-biased. hihihi~ :))
first of all, I really want to thank you for all the subbed videos that you've been sharing since who knows when. :) truly appreciate it. Catching up w/ their shows has been really hectic since the real world has been demanding for attention too for the past couple of months. haha! i'm super late in compiling all their tv shows since the beginning. :)) and I want to thank you for subbing some of it., especially their debut days shows. :)) if i'll manage to find free time, i'll start downloading those, and yes, you can seriously count on me not to reupload, distribute and the like EVEEEEEEEER. i know how tedious and taihen it is to make subbed videos since my friends and i do the same for every now and then. :)) thanks again and more power for your future releases! :))

Haha! xD Okay get down to business, Miko
I'm Miko xD I happen to be a huge fan of JE, Arashi,Pi and the rest of the big family <3
Yes, I don't update my journal like.....ever o_o Because I don't like to? But I LOVE to read my friends' journals and drop a bunch of flails comments! :D
I also rarely add friends around here....which is weird.. (D: I just realized you're my first LOL I fail in life so much in case you haven't noticed(?) )
Anyway, it'd be a pleasure to have you as a friend fellow Arashian! :D

Oh and I don't have to mention that I'd never redistribute or any of that stuff, do I? Because, really, it's just an awful thing to do and I'd never do it T_T

Of course I love Arashi too! So much that I can't choose a favorite because they're all wonderful in their own way. ^^ I hope you don't mind me adding you since I don't mind fangirling nor the fact that you sub awesome videos that I haven't yet seen. I promise to never use your videos for anything but watching them for myself, or maybe with friends . In which case we scream a lot! ^^ Haha! Cheers!

Hello~~~~ im Hosy from Singapore~ <3
i got pulled into this fandom by Sho. haha!
've been a fan for about~~ more than half a year~ but not one year yet~ i dont really know when i got into them because im surrounded by JE fans so i got exposed to them like nearly everyday~
i always see on tumblr that fans rmb so clearly when they got into the fandom, i totally dont! O~O

ohhs btw! i would like to ask for permission to post screenshots xD i may/ may not post the screenshots but i would like to know if you are okay with it~ since sometimes i'd post some screenshots on tumblr/LJ~~ but i do credit~~ [:

well, after my embarrasing moment of the password not working, i think i'd introduce myself and add you as a friend! :D

well, i'm an arashi fanfic writer. that's my strong point. sometimes i make fanvids, or random crack posts (also my strong point!) but what i have a hard time finding are subbers blogging their work to share. so many incidents happen since SOME people can't follow rules, and i can't find any episodes i want to watch in subs. at least, translation would be fine. so i hope you don't mind me adding you and follow your work! i promise not to reupload our work ever. i don't even like using sub videos to make fanvids! ahhahah! :3

i've been on tumblr for quite some time, but i think i'm coming back to LJ again. i can't wait to see your works.

I've been an arashi fan for more or less 10 years already. school got in the way but now that I'm finished, I'm starting to catch up on all things arashi. Like you, I was aiba-baited, and am actually still hanging by his ever cute but extremely hot fishing rod.

I promise I won't redistribute, reupload or use any of your videos or subs without your permission.

Thank you!

Hi I'm Anne and I am a fan of arashi for 2 years now... :D I promise to abide by your rules not to redistirbute... use your translations without your permission... reupload to streaming sites your hard work. I know that RL and being a fan can be hard and I really appreciate you for having the time to even sub these videos and share them with everyone... I understand that you moderate your friends for your safety and I hope that you could trust me....
I like Arashi because of the bond they have. No matter how high they have already reached they never boasted about it. I also like their childish characters and craziness even though sometimes I feel like they are like five year old kids.. :D
