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

Ello there,

I really wish you can add me back. I promise you I won't redistribute, reupload, claiming, selling any of your work.

Although I obey your rules, I don't think I'm qualified for rule no 5. I don't update my LJ account. I'm not a good writer and I did try to right a blog but it just doesn't work for me.

I hope you still add me as a friend though. Thank you :). Trichia.

Ive just started being obsessed with Arashi, particularly Matsujun. Was googling for Matsujun's stuff when accidentally came across your LJ.

So, hereby is my pledge. I'm a total techno-phobic so the chances of me uploading and redistributing your subbed videos are exactly zero and none. The case in point is; it took me bout a month to figure how LJ post works and another month how to get it organised *grinned sheepishly* ^^"

But anyhow, for the love of Arashi and Matsujun in particular, I shall not give up. ^^

Thanks for sharing the subbed videos! Keep up the good work! ^_^

Good day! I've seen a lot of your posts around Arashi comms and came for a visit. :D I'm a huge obsessor of Arashi, although only a few months over a year now. But ever since it started, it's been in full gear.

I have the greatest appreciation for fansubbers, for without them (including you!) lame people like myself who don't understand Japanese have a harder time enjoying Arashi, other JE groups, jdramas, and so on. I would never share anything that's been fansubbed. Why, I like to keep Arashi to myself! Mwahahaha! No, I'm just kidding. I don't want to keep them to myself. But I understand that fansubbing is time consuming and hard work, and I wish to respect those who do create the fansubs.

With all that said, I'd love it if we could be friends. I tend to post fangirling entries myself with a mix of personal stuff. The fangirl ones are always my favorite though. :D

Thanks so much, and take care!!! ♥

I will never use or distribute your works - you work too hard on them! So, yesh I will follow your rules ^__^

Hm...I'm still new to LJ despite bing a member since last year...so excuse my noobness, rofl XD *phew* I don't have a blank LJ...just a couple short posts from my KAT-TUN fangirling days and recently more Arashi posts, hehe ^__^ So let's become friends~

Hello! I understand your rules! I would like to add you, but you said you add back only if you get to know the person.. but unfortuantly I'm on hiatus right now (work, thesis, etc.), so I can't talk to much trough LJ. But if I dowload a sub video of course I make a comment and say thanks!

Let me know if I can I do! ^_^

Hi I love Arashi so I hope I qualify, I have read your rules and I plan on obeying them. Frankly I really use this stuff for my personal amusement only. I watch them and drool over them, usually when I am down, ´cause i know it will put me in a good mood.
If I ever feel like using your work in anyway I will sure ask for your permision:)
And I really promise not to redistribute, not to upload on streaming sites and all that, I know fnsubbers do not want that at all.
So I am adding you and I hope that in the future we can flail together:)

Extreme Arashi fangirling shouldn't be that much of a problem. I tend to fangirl a lot too... even if it might not be visible in my LJ. XD
And I'll absolutely follow #3 + 4... especially #4. It's a shame what has happened to various subbers lately... there you trust people not to steal files, re-upload them etc. and some just go ahead and still do it. <.

would you kike to be friends?

I was wondering if you would like to be friends, I am also an Arashi fangirl and want to get to know a lot about them. Where I live nobody really knows arashi and I hope to have another friend who loves Arashi as much as I do.

PS - I already added you.

it's me again
