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 Leslie. I'm from Sydney, Australia and been an Arashi fan since 2007! I'm recently trying to track down old Arashi vids that I haven't seen yet. I promise to follow your rules. I won't redistribute your subbed videos and won't use your translations. If I did want to use your translations I'd PM and ask you first.

Hello! My name's Isabelle and I'm a fangirl from Malaysia. I've only been in the fandom for slightly more than a year but was completely captivated by the boys and now I'm turning into an obsessed fan. XD Currently I'm in my last semester of university and Arashi is the one thing for me to destress with being so far away from home and civilization. I found your lj be chance because I am on a quest to download old Arashi videos before anything else happens. After MU was down, it's kinda painful because so many links went dead... >.< However, I normally don't post on my lj much as I use it as a shop front. And I barely have time to update my blog too lately due to my project and thesis writing. I'll try to comment more though so that we can get to know each other better. Always glad to get to know another Arashian for more flailing buddies. =D Also, I promise to only keep your videos to myself. It'll be kept in lock and key. (Just an exaggeration though) XD

I'm one-and-a-half-year Arashian and a Vietnamese. My friend told me ablout your LJ, and since I don't have the expriences in gaining and posting Arashi's news or videos so I's love to join your LJ very much ^^ You see, because I cannot deal with information technology so I don't know how to post an entry :( Though I am able to post comments, please don't ignore me ^^"
I love Arashi very much (If you need evidence, well, since right from the start I did not think that myself will buy anything of them but...Now, magazines and singles are filling up my room and my pocket has been thrown away by my mother ==")
I may use your translation but don't worry, I will ask for permission seriously, I don't like stealers anyway ^^
I beg your mercy to accept me ^^" (Sorry for my bad English)

Hi, I just came across your LJ in my online browsing of Arashi-related pages. I read through your rules and your FAQs. It's understandable to post these and I definitely agree with you that a personal LJ should remain friend-based, when you clearly state this isn't a "community." I like your frank comments about fangirl flailing and spazz attacks - haha. I really hope we can be friends... I plan to browse around your LJ a bit and see what's here. The first thing I saw was the Nino gif on the left bar - hugging the pillow. So cute! I haven't seen that episode yet, I assume it's HnA. But what made it even better, was after reading your FAQ/rules posts, I saw your name is "Emkay" and that it was on Nino's pillow! Haha, that made me laugh. Very cute of you :). I love all the Arashi boys and really enjoy spending time finding out more about them online - I only discovered them last year and am somewhat overwhelmed with 10+ years of Arashi to catch up on! I'm loving every moment of these boys though. I hope I can join in with your flailing and squealing at Nino's signature wink/salute, among other things. ;) Feel free to stop by my LJ - I try and update with thoughts on Arashi, questions about the fandom, or just an awesome resource or fanfic I found.

Hi there! I am Florence. I absolutely love arashi and I love fangirling with my friends from college. I even shared the love with my classmates in law school.
I'm relatively "young" in LJ - I've been a member for a time now but I'm not very active since I'm too busy in law school. Nevertheless, I would love to share the love with you and your works will be very much appreciated.. :)

BTW, I love your banner. I'm nino biased.. :)

Hi my name is Emily but most people just call me Em or Emi :) I am from Canada and I am a huge Arashi fan I am a huge Sho fan but I still love all of the guys. My journal is a little boring I must say not much happens in my life so I don't really have too much but if you don't mind that then go ahead and view. Also I am new to LJ and do not have really any friends right now so I would be really happy if you accept my friend request. Most of my friends don't like Japanese things so I would love to meet more people who have the same interest as me.
I will follow the rules if I want to share something I will ask for your permission first and properly credit you. I will not post to any streaming sites or on my LJ. I will not clam as my own. I feel that there is no point in breaking the rules because when you do that the subbers will stop subbing and it turns into a lose lose situation for the people who want to enjoy subbed videos and for the subbers who want to share with other fans.

Sorry for all my rambling and I hope you accept my friend request I would love to fangirl with you.

Nick Name is ArashiFann, 25 years old, from Saudi Arabia.
Started my love for Arashi through drama Maou <3<3 I love this drama
I liked a lot Ohno acting, then started searching for his other works...
So I got to know Arashi slowly....
My impression of each member of Arashi for me:
Ohno: My ichiban, best actor, nice voice, best dance, baby face, best smile, quite, handsome <3, The only thing I do not like is the darkening of the skin because of fishing.
Sho: Group characters in one person (contradictory), funny.
Aiba: Hurry boy, cheerful, wonderful laughs voice.
Nino: Funny, tongue lashing, his songs a warm.
Jun: Conceited.
Nice to meet you.
Hope we can be friends. >_<
I promise to follow all of your rules.

Thank you for your hard work ....

My ichiban is Sho-kun and I'm a nade-gata addict since I know him (really?). I'm nurse and I work at night...I'm timer and editor for the fandom and frankly speaking, I know what is to see your work steal and redistribute so I can swear you that it will never be my case...So I hope we can talk and read you soon!
