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'm a new-ish Arashi fan, I've been obsessed with them since this January. I found out about them after watching Gokusen. I definitely wish I had known about them earlier. Jun is my ichiban, but I still love all the guys. My journal is pretty boring, empty since I just started it, and because I don't have much to write about. I hope you can add me as a friend though!

Hi! I'm Haru

I'm quite new to LJ, but I have been a crazy Arashi fan for almost 3 years!! I cannot believe I didn't know about LJ just last year, I have gotten to know such lovely and dedicated people. I hope to get to know you too! So feel free to look at my journal... my Japanese is limited, nothing too exciting is posted there but I would LOVE comments.

I promise never to re-distribute, re-post your work.

I'm currently living in London, I'm a psychologist, completing my degree in May. So if you want to talk about Arashi or anything you can PM me. btw Canon in d is my favorite classical piece! Good luck with your performances. :)

Hi. My name is 優子. I've been loosely in Vox/LJ community for 6 years. I don't think I've come across you before. Found your newest(?) post on arashi-on community that I couldn't access and that brought me to your introduction page. I would be grateful and feel very much honored if you'd add me as your friend although you might find me not much to offer in return. Our time with internet freedom seems limited now but I'd like to stick together with our community (and fight back ...whispers)

Hi! My name is Crystal. I'm American, but I live in Japan. I'm in the military and have been stationed in Yokosuka for the past 4 years (sadly, i'm not as good with the language as I'd like to be *sad face* ) In my journal I explain how I became an Arashi fangirl (jun-baited like so many of us) but my heart belongs to Sho. I mostly write fanfiction in my journal. I'd really like to see your subbed videos. Because I have such a hard time with the language here, people who fansub get my upmost respect. Not only are you talented enough to be fluent in multiple languages, but you are kind enough to share your skills with others. As such, I wouldn't dream of ever reposting or streaming the videos that you have spent so much time on. Rules 3&4 are safe with me (and I certainly look forward to rule 1!) ((btw, the 'i can haz hamburger hands?' had my laughing for like ten minutes. lol ))

Hello^^ My name is Koki and I wanna be your friend! Lets see I have liked Arashi for about 2 years now. I started to like them after watching D no arashi and then started to listen to their music ever since then I've been a huge fan! It's hard to say who is my number one because it always changes, It seems to rotate. Like Monday it' Jun, then Tuesday Abia, and then friday... I think you get the point'^^ I promise to follow your rules, I'm not intrested in stealing your work, I just want to enjoy some subbed videos because my Japanese Sucks. >.

Hi... my name's riya... I've been a fan since late 2006... saw the CM of Jun's drama being shown here in our country and got hooked on the song... recently I haven't been really active on LJ as I have A LOT of other blogs... and I mean it... I have 6... hehehe... I'm more into my personal and craft blog now a days that I have not updated my LJ (fangirling blog). I understand how hard it is for subbers and I respect what they do that's why I intend to follow all the rules as a sign of respect.

Hope you add me as a friend... It would be nice to know you... :)

harloe! how are you? it's nice to know that you are really meticulous with your works seeing how you were able to write a long post here ^^, My name, as you can see my username (hehe) is Natassa but it's easier to call me Nat. Sadly for me, I only discovered those 5 gems 2 years ago..like seriously, SLOW OF ME. I'm from Singapore and currently a fresh graduate from polytechnic. =) By the way, my favourite is Ohno because of too many reasons. I am a girl who procrastinate so I tend to not post anything on lj despite telling myself a few hours ago that I would post something today. My last post was probably December last year. =( But trust me, I visit LJ every single day without fail, making sure that I am checking the posts up to date. As a fellow fan, I understand the rules you have implemented and I promise never to break any of those rules since I don't wish to jeopardise our fandom. JE stuffs are already hard to get, so I don't wish to make it even harder. I hope you'll accept me as your friend and I would like to view more of your works =) Though I really have to apologise that I do not update my journal regularly, and I really mean I don't..sigh.

Oh and you play the cello, that's awesome! I used to be in band and I played the French Horn. =D

Hi, my name is Valerie. I'm a French Arashi fan and I would like to read your LJ as a friend. I saw you posted an entry on Arashi_on so that's the way I found your livejournal ^^
I was Jun-baited (like a lot of us) 5 years ago but since a loooooooong time,Riida is my ichiban ^^ Too funny, too cute, too awesome ^^Well the others are too of course but Ohchan is just... so Ohchan-ish (if you guess what I mean lol).
Thanks for your hard work. I accept the rules ;)
