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

Doumo! My name's Joey, and I'm a huge Arashi fan. :) (Ohno-biased ha.)
I had a two-year break from Arashi recently, but now I'm back and head over heels with them all over again. I see that you're a big fan as well and I'd love to reconnect with such fans again!

I promise not to distribute any of your works, and watch/read them personally! Thank you so much for putting in all this work and for reading my comment!

I hope that we can get to know each other. :>

Hi there! =) I'm from Spain and my friends call me Rache. I've been in love with Arashi for three and a half years and not planning to stop anytime soon :P I can not live without them... I've got a big crush on Nino. Also, I've got a crush in his relationship with Ohno xD I love all of them anyway, they're so special and mean so much to me... That's why I'd love to be able to enjoy your work! I know this must take lots of effort so I promise I'll not redistribute your work or upload it anywhere. I'll follow your rules! Thank you very much for your time ^^

P.S: (Don't want to sound like a stalker but can I mention that I just LOVE that you're a cellist because I think cello anf violins are the most precious intruments in all over the worl and I could spend my whole life listening to them? <3)

Hey there! My name is Rae. I'm from the Philippines :)
I've been an Arashian since 2008 and my ichiban is Nino. I found your LJ randomly while searching for JE stuffs esp Arashi. and since we're in the same fandom, i figured it would be nice to get to know each other? :) well i do find time for my friends here and flail so i hope we can too :D since you translate it'll be of help :D and your extreme fangirling can also make me fangirl more, so i'd definitely love that.
that aside, of course i promise i will follow all of your rules. i will never share or reupload your releases and for your translations, i promise i won't translate it to other language without your permission. though i really don't do translations, i just read them to enjoy :D
Hope you'll add me back. i would be happy about it! ^^
thank you! Yoroshiku~

Hi there, I'm Jessica or Sei :))
I've seen you around in some communities I'm a member of, I've stalk your LJ a few times before, mostly to read some translations. I rarely commenting in your post *I'm stalking* or sometimes I forgot to do that.
I've understand your rules, I will respect and follow it. I'm helping my friend running her communities and sometimes help with her subbed videos so I know about subber hardwork.
I accidentally found you on twitter a few days ago and because you do some Arafes report, I decide to follow you there :p And because you said you might write more about Arafes in our journal, I decide to add your journal too xD Hope you don't mind me lurking around ^^
May we can become friends ^^

Hi~ I don't know if you'd remember (it feels strange to say "recognize", LOL) me, but I talked to you a few times on twitter! (my username is gabriellea02). Your tweets are definitely interesting and flail-worthy to me and, since Arashi news are not available where I live, most welcome. Your tweets and updates are always great to see on the timeline! I'd like to add you as a friend you here as well, if you don't mind.

P.S: Extreme Arashi fangirling is MOST DEFINITELY welcome. Goodness knows I need more fangirl friends in my life, real-life or virtual.

My name is Martina, I'm from Czech Republic.
I'm in the fandom for more then year, I know that it's not so long, but I'm really happy that I found Arashi! :) (I know only few people in my country, who knows them...)
My Ichiban is MatsuJun, but I love all of them, of course. I love their shows, concerts and just everything. :D But for me, like a new member it's so hard to find all those files, because a lot of communities are closed (luckily I was in a lot of communities before the big problem with some violating fan, who sold all translated stuffs, because after this situation, it was for new fans really hard...).
I promise you not to break your rules. I will not redistribute them, uploade them to any streaming site or claim, that they are my.
I would love to be your friend! :)

Hello my name is Aiko, age 19, and I'm hoping we can be friends ^u^ I dont update my livejournal quite often but I'm active when it comes to commenting on posts and responding :) I've been an arashi fan since Feb 2012 (yeah im a late fan) and I have never stopped loving them ever since. My bias is Ohno and my niban is Sho but Nino is slowly overtaking Sho >0<; Nino is just so irresistible!

Oh, I'm also a follower on twitter (aikowiththeflow) x) I love your translations ♥ I didnt even know you had an official LJ account with all your work here! So here I am lol.

I was so caught up with talking about myself that I almost forgot to tell you that I have read the rules and I promise to abide them! I wouldnt want to lose a friend and get banned from communities if I broke these rules now would I >

I promise I won't redistribute your subbed videos and will follow all the rules written in here. I know I don't have a lot of journals posted in my LJ. I'm not a blogger type but I've been actively using this account since the beginning of the year and join numerous of Arashi's community. You can see through the number of comments I posted http://cookiesdreamer.livejournal.com/profile/ :D

Thanks! <3
