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! LJ terminology always makes me feel like a kindergartener, but "will you please be my friend?" (^_^) I'm addicted to Arashi (particularly a big Nino fan) and accept any fangirling that comes my way! I also have absolutely no intent to redistribute your files/translations in any way.
I came to your LJ this time via kazenomukoue, but I'm pretty sure I've seen you around elsewhere before this. I just don't remember where. I don't really blog myself (I have nothing interesting to say or share on my own), so my journal is pretty empty, but I do comment around on other Arashi sites.
In any case, I hope you'll add me! Thanks!

I really love all your translations of Aiba's recomen. I love his voice but with your translations, they become wonderful. I know they take so much effort, so thank you for spending your time sharing them here.
Thank you also for sharing Aiba's Mc during the Popcorn concert. you are so so fortunate. I don't even know where to begin to get tickets... I want to attend at least 1 Arashi concert in my lifetime...
Can we be friends?
Thank you so much. really love the Recomen translations <3

My name is Martina. I'm from Czech Republic (it's in Europe) :D
I'm new Arashi fan. I love them about 5 months. My ichiban is MatsuJun. Because of him I found Arashi (good job!! :D). I love his smile, and parts, when he is kind and he shows his feelings. ♥
But I love other members too. On the second position are Aiba and Ohno, because crazy Aiba can me allways cheer up and Ohno is so talented O_O. And I forgot Nino and Sho... Hah, they are amazing too. Nino's voice O_O he is very good singer. And Sho is just Sho :D He is a little mystery for me, I don't know why :D
I read it all. I will follow the rules, I understand you.
If you have some questions, just ask. :)
Thank you for your hard work and for reading this comment! :)

Hello there, Emkay-san! :-) My name is Monique from the Philippines.
I was Jun-baited but after a month, I realized I have taken a liking to the bratty Nino. And now he's my ichiban!
I don't update my LJ often since I'm always on Tumblr but I try my best to update it with stuff.
I have read your rules and I will definitely follow the number 3 and 4 rules. Besides, I'm selfish so uploading and sharing the subs will never be my kind of thing. I want them all to myself . HEHEHEHE. And thank you very much for your hard work on the subs and translations. We all appreciate it. :)
Hoping to be your friend so we can fangirl hardcore on Arashi! :-) :-)

Hi I would like to add you :)

And I'm fine with fangirling ;D
I do it often too just in real life (in the confine of my room mostly XD)

Hello. My name is Blacky.
I don't really have a favorite Arashi members cause I like all of them, but I learn about Arashi after I watch Ninomiya Kazunari in Ryusei no KIzuna. I like Ninomiya, Ohno and Sakurai (which by myself I called them TriNos - stand for trio of Ninomiya, Ohno and Sakurai).
I don't update my LJ always cause I bad at expressing myself, especially with words. I spend more time at my Tumblr. It is also because the slow internet connection that I have.
I already read all of the above. I promise to follow all the rules.
Thanks for subbing and sharing.
Please accept me.

hi! :)

Hi there! :) Stumbled upon your LJ when I was looking for ARASHI subbed videos. :) Hope you can add me back. I started liking arashi when i first knew about them through jun. it was because of HYD and Gokusen. :D Then, after watching Yamada Taro Monogatari, I liked Sho and Nino. Then, now, Ohno's my favourite. Anyway, hope you can add me back. I promise to follow all your rules and will definitely not reupload your videos or distribute them in any way.

Hello!! :D I'm Meari! (that's just my fandom name xDD you can also call me Mary)
I'm actually new to the arashi fandom :)) Sorry for that xD I don't know much about them but I would really like to get to know Arashi. My current ichiban is Nino. :) I began to watch D no Arashi last month but then I couldn't find videos of it anymore so I'm looking for arashi lj communities so they could help me explore the Arashi world lol. And I'd like to flail with arashi fangirls hahaha xD Moreover, I'd really like to meet new friends too! I'm not new to lj but I still don't know much of how it works since I don't stop by here often. I usually open my facebook more:)) But I do comment on posts of people who post updates and such :)

I hope we can be friends! I was hoping you could help me discover more on Arashi xD You can always contact me on facebook>> Meari Kame Inoo (that's my account name there) I promise I won't redistribute your videos and other translations ^^ Thanks!I hope to be good friends with you!~

Hello! My name is Nana, and I just found your livejournal. We haven't talked yet, and my livejournal is blank, but I hope you will accept me. I have read the rules, and I promise that I won't break any of them, I just want to see your subbed stuff.(: I really love Arashi, but there are still a lot of things I haven't seen/read, and I think you could help me get to know more about them through your translations. I'd also like to make friends with fellow fans, but I'm really shy on the internet, but I hope I'll be able to talk with people with the same interest here!^^ Please accept my request!
Thank you for your hard work!

Hi! I hope you're still active. I just saw a post about Ohno in April 2013 so I'm guessing you may be, which is great!

Of course, I first found this LJ through impure reasons. I don't understand Japanese so I need subs and translations, but then I realized I'm already a member of amnosxsubs. Yet! I'd still like to be your mutual friend. I love making friends with Arashians, although it's hard to be forward sometimes out of the blue and you never know which person you'd click with and which you won't. Extreme fangirling from you is welcome! I may not comment every single time (because I ponder over every single word and sometimes take too long that I decide not to comment after all), but I do read if I have time or come across your posts (being fickle and moody, I leave LJ for long periods of time and sometimes it's too much of a hassle to go back 50+ posts). I absolutely love Arashi, and although I'm fickle Arashi is the longest group/idol I've stuck with for so long (even I'm amazed).

I promise to follow your rules. I won't use your translations without first notifying you and I'll never post the links of your videos or upload them anywhere. You don't have to add me back right away, but I hope we'll become a mutual friend in the future.


Last thing: Even though Aiba drew you in and you're a Nino stan, even then your username surprises me. What's the story behind amnosxmatsujun?

hi there! I'm Gaby. Basically, arashi is not my ichiban in JE fandom, but I do love them <3
I love the interaction between members, and I love how I always be able to laugh watching them.
According to me, arashi is a wonderful group, since it can remains stable and complete after so many years. I mean, other famous JE groups (kat-tun, news, even HSJ which brings me to JE fandom) has lost at least one of their members even though their group's age is younger than arashi. Therefore, I would like to know this group more, enjoy them, and laugh of their baka-ness xD
Well, after all, I'm JE fans. I wonder if you would consider me as arashian or not due to my lack knowledge about arashi, but I have watched some of their dramas and tv appearances and I do love them.
I hope you would let me becomes your friend xP

Ow, and I also promise not to reupload or redistribute your projects. I want to respect your projects since people like you have been helping me enjoying JE fandom more and more :)

Btw, my ichiban is Sakurai Sho, but I love all members..
So much thanks if you dont mind to adding me back...
