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

I read the rule carefully and promise to follow them!

I didn't know your LJ account until now; yet, I follow you on Twitter since.. I don't know, maybe several months haha.
My Twitter name is @_UriSarang, my real name is Yassira! I'm French, I don't fully understand Japanese, and I am glad to follow you since you are a pretty active translator on Twitter.

By the way, thank you for sharing with the fandom. It means a lot! :3

Hello. Arashi fan here. Began as a vs Arashi fan . Was studying Japanese but got struck with an incurable illness and had to stop. Couldn't even study at home without getting sick. So as a way to not forget what I'd learnt I started watching Arashi's shows without subtitles as much as possible and gradually became a fan, wanting to be able to understand more than 50% of what they say.
Other than that I'm a massive fan of Japanese films and have seen around 400 by now including all of Nino's before I knew who he was. Also a Ryusei no Kizuna maniac.

I don't like to share much about myself on the internet and have this account primarily to join Arashi communities and not to keep a journal but if there's anything you'd like to know feel free to pm me.

I've read all the rules and promise to abide by them. All videos will be kept in a treasure box that only I have the map to. I envy your skills as a cellist. Much better than the old violin!

Thank you for your consideration!

Heyy :)

I'm Melanie from Australia.
I have been an Arashi fan for about 2 years now after seeing VS Arashi on TV. I love all of their programs because no matter what they always entertain me. My ichiban will forever be Ninomi followed closely by Sho-kun but my favorite pairing will always be Ohmiya..

I promise to follow all your rules and not redistribute or claim them as my own.

Hope you accept me :)

Hello there! My name is Laura!

I am here because I love Arashi, my searching has led me to your LJ! I promise to abide by your rules - no re-upload, sharing, streaming, linking etc. We must respect the work of subbers and shares such as this community, we should be grateful, not selfish.

My LJ does not have much on it at all - it was originally meant to be a platform for my arts but has since become a tool to watch Arashi videos! If you have any questions about me, please don't hesitate to ask :)

I hope to become part of your community, thank you for reading!

Hi. I'm Gail, from the Philippines but currently residing here in Cambodia for work.. It is really lonely to be alone in a country where you don't have your family and friends.. It is like a total different world. I'm really getting lonely and depressed until I came across Arashi. They became the reasons why I don't feel so lonely anymore. They really make me happy. I am really thankful also to those people like you who made it possible for me to love Arashi more. Because I cannot understand Japanese, I rely on people like you who spends countless hours to sub for videos for other people to enjoy. I am really grateful and promise not to soil your hardwork by obeying our rules as my respect to you. I promise not to reupload, stream, share any links, retranslate and sell any videos. I will keep it private. Thank you. :)

Hello! I'm not sure if your account is still active but just in case it is, I thought I'd leave a comment! My name is Rebecca and I'm from the UK - I'm not quite sure how I found myself obsessed with Arashi but somehow they've taken over my life; I've spent an embarrassing amount of time googling them and wishing I could speak Japanese. My LJ account isn't very full as it's become more of a tool to watch whatever I can of these five gorgeous guys but I regularly comment and would love to be on your friends list! I of course promise to abide by all of your rules and will never redistribute any of your hard work. I'd be extremely grateful and happy if you add me back! :)

Hi Emkay,

I am a fellow Arashian from Singapore who enjoys fangirling over Arashi and seeing others fangirling over Arashi too! Let's fangirl together! ;) <3

I use my lj account just to fangirl over Arashi so I don't have any posts as of now, however I do regularly leave comments to thanks others for their hard work as I believe it is important to show appreciation.

Actually, I have been thinking of writing more on lj as the Jubilee weekend of Singapore're 50th birthday has just passed and I actually went down to catch the fireworks. Actually seeing the hanabi on Yamada Tarou really inspired me to appreciate the fireworks in a crowd. I guess that's the soft power of Arashi & Nino :)

Also, I have recently had an encounter with a Shiba Inu puppy which I was thinking of writing about as my first lj post. I really love Shiba Inus and am currently trying to get my mum into it! I was so excited when I saw a shiba inu puppy being walked outside my house and got even excited when the owner turned out to be my neighbour!! It's name is Hachi, really hope to see it soon!!!

So there's my longwinded post to introduce myself haha. I promise to follow all your rules. Thank you so much for all your hard work and I hope you receive a lot of good karma for bringing precious Arashi closer to us Arashians :)

Arigato~ <3
