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 Emkay! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

I'm Riri. I've been following you on Twitter for quite some time now and I did like to know you more. I'm start using LJ this year, so my post on my LJ wasn't interesting and it's just some random-things. I've read all your rules and promise to follow it. I like Arashi since around 3-4 years ago. My ichiban is Ohno, OTP? I like all as long as there is Ohno xD Cause I love them with my soul~Arashi for dream xD
Since I'm not good at english I'm sorry about my broken english. I'll be glad if you add me back ^^
Please let me be in and be your friend ^^ Thank you~

Hi! Pardon me for an out of nowhere friend request! I've seen you around on livejournal/twitter before but never followed you until my talking to my friend today. She high recommended following you on twitter, and I found your link back here. So I want to be friends! Despite not ever leaving a comment, I'm sorry!

To get it out of the way I'll say that I won't share your subs or anything, and that I properly read your rules. More than that I'm here because I want to be friends!

My name is Jessee, but most people know me by my username better. I'm from America but I live in Japan right now and have been for almost five years (teaching English). I'm not good enough at Japanese for a translation job, but I can watch Arashi's tv programs and go to their concerts without any language problems. (Although I think someday I'd like to be a translator which is why I'm envious of your job, also cello is pretty kick ass.)

Uhm, I'm not really sure what to tell you as I tend to talk too much when it comes to these things... so some stuff about Arashi! I've been a fan since 2008 or so, right before I moved to Japan. My favorite is Sho, although at one point in time Aiba almost overtook him for a year (sometimes he still calls me too, haha), but just like you I like all five of them together the best. :) I really love doujinshi and fanfiction and I'll read any pairing, although my favorite is Juntoshi (I know, that has nothing to do with Sho, haha). Lately my Japanese friend has made me appreciate Aimiya more, so that's on the top of my list too...

My journal is mostly personal posts, although sometimes I'll make posts about Arashi (like translations), same thing with my twitter. I have some fanfiction posted on a separate community, and do some pre-order stuff for concert goods/doujinshi, so I guess I don't have a specific contribution to the Arashi community, haha.

Well, I'll stop there! Hopefully I didn't skip anything important!

HI Emkay!
I'm Lorry. I've been searching for some subbed videos of arashi shows when i found your LJ. I have read and understood the rules and promise to follow and respect them. I really admire subbers like you because even if you're busy in RL, you still share and spent time to sub and share it to us or to our fellow fans (Thank you for that! (^_^x)v)
Jun-baited here, and Nino is my ichiban but still i love them all. I love watching their shows specially after work because i feel relieved after watching it (most specially after a stressful day at work). :)
I am not an active blogger but i love commenting and comment conversations. .
Again, i will not reupload, distribute or claim your works/files as mine.

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu.

Konnichiwa! Im jane from philippines and im crazy in a good way arashi fan ^^ , i was searching through Arashi-on for subbed arashi guesting and lucky me i found you. I love talking arashi all the time that my friends always says that im crazy, well its true hehe, my ichiban is Ohno-kun his really funny and a great riida but i love all of them, i love their bakaness and their passion to their work matsujun is really kakkoi and nino is so talented and sho is just like mr.perfect and aibachi is really really kind naturally, thats why i love them they made me happy all the time so for that i am looking for subbed vids since i dont understand much of japanese words and i am thankful for subbers like you who share their work for us, and ive read your rules not to re-upload or hotlink nor sell your stuff, its a shame to do that anyway, im hoping we could be friends.😁 yoroshiku onegai!

Hi there! :) Haste from the Philippines. Knew of ARASHI since I saw Jun in Gokusen and when I saw the video of "Wish" (which a friend gave to me as a gift). Hope you would add me back. I promise not to distribute your work anywhere or share/stream your files in any website like youtube, dailymotion, etc. Regarding your rule 3, I don't usually have the technical capabilities to sub or do anything of that sort so I doubt I will use your translations for anything other than just watching it to understand (cause sadly, I don't understand Japanese) but I promise I will ask permission and also credit if there comes a time that I hope to use your work but again, chances of this happening is really 0%. Anyway, hope you can add me back. I don't usually post works in LJ since I have little to say and I don't like to rant as much in blogs but I do comment on posts especially for those reviewing certain dramas --> I enjoy reading people's take on certain shows and sharing opinions. :)

Hello! :D

Nice to meet you huge arashi fan!! ;3
I am María from Spain and I am an HUGE obssesed fan of Arashi X3
Maybe I am a newbie in this fandom, but I already know a lot about them (I still think that I have a loong way) Although I love the five, if I have to choose one, I would choose Aiba because he loves smiling and we share the same clumsiness :P
Anyways, first are the rules, I promise not to stream or sell or hot-link any video from this community. I won't re-upload them as well. And if I am going to use any of your translations I will ask for your permision beforehand and credit you. I acknowledge your hard work and efforts you put here and I really respect that.
Well... I am on those blank LJ users, I have nothing to post T_T But I really like to comment on people's post. And I will in yours, but I can't do since I am not your friend yet. (I looove talking and meeting new people but I understand the difficulties of knowing people through internet.)
Well, I think it's time to put an end to this, because I think I exceeded on writing. I hope you don't mind :)

No matter what your decisions is I will understand. Thanks for your hard work and have a nice day! :D

Hello, i'm dhila from indonesia. I just knew you from twitter and my username is haajimari. You can see your followers list since i already follow you. I'm new with this fandom, around last november i think.
Well i do want to have a friend with the same fandom so maybe if you don't mind, we can talk in twitter? Is it alright for you?
My ichiban is ohno. Riida is childish but really he's incredible talented. I was shocked when i know this guy is a leader and well talented. But i like them all of course! Their bonds are strong ^^
I will follow your rules of course since i appreciate your works. I won't redistribute and anything without asking you. I will use it for myself for sure~
Looking forward to be friend with you. Hope we can have a talk in twitter, and you can add me back. Thank you ^^

Hi I'm Jae from Indonesia. I would like to join your community, and I will obediently abide all your rules. Not to repost, reupload, stream, hotlinking, claiming them as mine and whatever way that will bring harm to the community.
I've been an Arashi fan since 2012. I really enjoy watching Arashi's drama, bangumi, concert, and everything about them. I can't stay a day without watch or read something about them. Their excellent group dynamic as well as their antics are those the ones that always keeping me happy.
My ichiban is aiba, i really love him because his bakaness always makes me laughter. I also like Sho-chan, and well, basically all five of them together of course! I love Sakuraiba couple too. They're best couple, I think.
Please let me join your community~
Thank you~
