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

Plus, I do want to know them more ;w; and don't worry i do understand about your rule >< such like no hotlinks, if i want to use your subs and translation it's a must for me to ask you first.. and so on.

Hi, my name is yui... I'm a fan of Arashi since junior high, (ah! actually only Nino) I became Arashi fan when I'm senior high student. Now I'm a college student. I am really new in LJ, you must wondering why, tight? It's because I only knew this LJ paradise when I study in university and met my first Arashi friend in my life, hehe... All the time before I only search for their music and picts, sometimes I found their video on youtube. hehe
Hmm... Ah! I'm now in my final year study so I'm a kind of busy, LJ hajimeta bakkari nanoni, hehe...
I don't know what else to say, maybe a lot actually but I can't think right now, gomenasai~ m(_ _)m
Let's be friend!! ^o^

Hi! I'm Laura. I am an Arashi fan from California, USA. I have been a fan for a year, but I have fallen hard for these boys! For the first month I knew about Arashi, Aiba was my favorite. But then, after I watched Kimi Wa Petto, I've fallen hard for Jun ever since. I used to think he was way too "cool", but now I can't help fangirl-ing whenever his dorky side comes through <3
Anyway - I am also a photographer who is moving to Japan soon to teach English. I love art and traveling and have been to 25 countries already!
I promise to follow your rules - and as I don't really have an arashi friends, it would be nice to post silly ramblings once in a while :)
Thanks :D

Hi! I'm Mayte from Bolivia and I've been an Arashi fan for almost two years now. My favorite member is Aiba, btw.

I'm already a member of your subbing community but there are some subbed videos that you only have here in your journal that I would really, really like to watch, so I would really appreciate it if you could add me back. I have to tell you that I'm not very active on lj though (as you can check for yourself); I do comment on communities but my journal is basically empty and I hang out mostly on twitter and tumblr. I know you've said you wouldn't add people with blank lj but I thought I could try anyway, I promise you I'm being honest, I've read your rules and I promise to never redistribute, re-upload to streaming sites or claim as mine any of your videos. I hope you can consider adding me.

Thank you for your hard work!

i am gem. i have been an arashi fan since oct-2005 when i first watched HYD and was totally taken by Jun. however, attending 2006 concert, my heart was stolen by ohchan so he has remained my ichiban since then.

i have an LJ but i don't do entries because i have never had the habit of writing entries even diaries. you can probably find me lurking around arashi fanfic communities where i comment on author's fanfics and also in stormy team LJ where i am a member, i usually don't comment much except to thank all for their hard work. i am also a member of a few other subbing LJs like NNK, tsuribaka and also arashi_on. if you need any further information, please do let me know.

i have the greatest respect for subbers and subbing communities and i would never redistribute or upload the subbed files to streaming website. i consider disregarding the subbers' rules as shooting myself in the foot because seriously if the subbers refuse to sub anymore, those of us who depend on the subs would be the ones "hurt" by it all.

i hope that you will seriously consider adding me as your friend.

thank you very much.

Hi I'm Kathy from Qns, NY. I hope that you will be able to add me, I will of course follow all the rules of this LJ and keep the videos to myself. I have been an Arashi fan for around seven years or so now, getting to know them more and more as i slowly watch all their projects from past and present, and falling in love with them even more heehee. I am absolutely no stranger to being a fangirl and completely welcome and will relish all the Arashi fangirling your LJ has to offer ^_^.

My name is Atiqah and i'm from Malaysia. I found your LJ while i was browsing for arashi no waza-ari (got baited while watching kotatsu de arashi) I'm Arashi-bait (or should i say song-bait cos the first thing that i like about them is their songs) and eventually i manage to find my ichiban which is the forever 17 Nino(OMG! He's 30 already??) and I'm a total Ohmiya shipper XD I'm a bit shy when interacting with people but if anyone started a conversation i will definitely follow up but i'm extremely suck at ending a conversation so i apologize first if i ever leave any conversation hanging. I don't usually update my LJ so you might see more than month gap between my previous and latest post but i try to update as much as i can.
Finally, i've read your rules carefully and will definitely follow the 3 & 4 rules, and you're a cellist? Wow!! I've always love listening to orchestra(my dad influence) and really love it when i can hear someone play any musical instrument live (^_^) Ah! I need to thank you first for subbing and sharing your videos. It really help us who can't really understand Japanese. Hope this will help you to somehow know a little bit about me. If you don't mind, you can also add me in facebook(if you have one) My name is Nur Atiqah. It'll be easier to interact(fangirl-ing actually) since i'm 24/7 on facebook XP Yoroshiku ne

Join! =)

Hello! I'm Ira from Singapore.

I'm a big fan of Arashi (and other JE groups) especially Sakurai Sho! Started liking 'Chesuto' first before all of the Arashi's members. I know more about Arashi when I watch their old variety shows with subs. So, I hope I will get accepted as I promise to not redistribute or upload them to streaming sites or claimed them as mine.
