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.. I have added you. :) My name is Nur, from Malaysia. yoroshiku onegaishimasu :D
I write some fiction in my journal but I am still a beginner, plus a student so I have quite limited time to write. However I like to read fanfiction from other communities. I've joined quite a lot, including some subbing community too. If possible, I want to follow you too. Please consider me, thank you in advance ;)

Hello Emkay! I'm Cally, an Arashian for 7-8 years. (I did leave the fandom temporarily, so about 5~6years.)
I first came to know Arashi through Matsujun's dramas (Hana Yori Dango & Kimi wa Petto). But at that time, I wasn't a fan of theirs, until I started watching 'Mago Mago Arashi' & 'VS Arashi', and I came to like the group as a whole. Soon after, I became a fan of theirs and started becoming a regular viewer of their variety shows and dramas. Hmm, I don't really have a ichiban because I love all of the members too much that I seriously can't pick. I hope I have given you enough information about myself for you to have a reason to add me back! :)

I have read your rules, and I promise to abide towards them, I will not redistribute your videos anywhere and it will only be for my personal view, if I ever wanted to use your translations, I would seek your permission first (and credit you). :)
And as for rule 2, I love Arashi a lot <3
I hope you would add me back, thank you!! <3

Yay! I'm so happy you have a Live Journal. I'm Kaytoni - I also follow you on Twitter and I loved your Arashi concert updates. I squeal and fangirl so much about Arashi that my Dad (yep, 27 still living at home) asks if I am okay, because I am making 'weird squeaky noises'. Otsukaresama deshita!

I can't explain fully what Arashi means to me without sounding nutty - haha.. but really, they inspired me to go back to what I love, which is being creative. I am also now teaching myself Japanese and I have a dream to live in Japan and work either as a translator/interpreter or perhaps to open up a vegan store. Even though my dreams are highly unlikely, I still want to aim for it!! ^-^

Anyways, I would love to join your page and make new Arashi fangirl and fanboy friends. When I am much better at Japanese, I would also like to try fan subbing, even though I know it can be a risky venture (what with JE being super strict). That said, I absolutely follow the rules of not redistributing anything of yours. If I make mention of a sub you did, I will always credit you.

Erms.. what else.. oh, my name is Kerry. ^-^ Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Hello!!! I think Ive seen you on twitter manymanymany times :DDD You have the name username on twitter n this lj am i correct?? I LOVE your translations and I just read Nino's mag interview where he promoted Ohoku n abt the love Arashi has for their fans and all that.

Of course I love Arashi!!! XD Everytime I read Nino's interviews my ichiban ranking always sways to him like this is one of the reasons why i fell for Arashi and it lasted this long.( Its not long to others but its really woah for me since its my first fandom ^^)

i really hope u add me back as a friend ^^ Though tbh im not as active on lj as compared to twitter but I do try my best when I have more longer periods of free time :DDD

Dunno if you're still doing this but I'm doing it just in case! I have read extensively and I promise not to take any of your subs and claim them as my own or post to streaming sites, but if I wish to use your translations to pm you first to get the clear.

Thank you! I'm p sure I follow you on tumblr, you're helping me get back into the boys and I really appreciate it!

Oh wow I saw a lot of people wrote a bunch of stuff too so I guess I will too? My names Imari, I'm 21 and I've been in to fandom for about 7 years now. College and life has SEVERELY cut down on my ability to watch the boys but it's my senior year and I'm claiming them back! It's because of them that I found that I have a talent for languages so I'm gonna try to be a translator professionally! ..yup. :D

Hi! I'm VEE but you can also call me Danica :)
I'm from Philippines and I am an arashi fan for a year.. ;) I also have my account for almost a year too, but I just started to write on it just recently because I don't have any knowledge with tech and stuff, I had some hard to figure how this magical place *lj* works. And it really took me quite awhile to be able to get the hang of it... So now that I do (sort of) I'm ready to fangirl and rainbow flail from now on! ^_^

I promise to follow all the rules! I will not do anything stupid, I promise! :D

Yoroshiku! :)

Hey, I just found your journal :) I'm relatively new to the fandom so I always look up to 'older' fans, especially the ones who have been with Arashi before they got big. It's quite hard to find older footage these days so I always appreciate subbers or just general uploads. I am a regular 17 year old from Germany. Of course I understand that uploading this kind of stuff is not exactly legal so it is only fair for you to protect yourself. Greetings ^^

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 especially Sho ( i love his laugh!). 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. :)

Heyy :)

My name is Melanie and I'm from Australia. I'm am an English student currently studying journalism so I understand all about plagiarism. I've been an Arashi fan for nearly 2 years now after I was Nino-bated from watching VS Arashi on TV.

I promise to follow all of your rules; I know how much work goes into them.

I know I haven't commented on your post but I have been following you on Twitter for some time now and I love your concert reports. I'm Ohmiya_95 over there by the way :)

Anyways, I hope you consider me :)

first of all i read your rules and i promise you i will just download them for me to watch them

well you can call me mechi 21 y.o it didn't become 1 year since i've become an arashian so you're my dai senpai ^^
I found this journal while i was searching for ao no hono movie and there was a link for one of your posts of the making of ao no hono

i actually made a live journal account so i can get arashi stuff .. and so you know almost all arashians on LJ, so for posts you won't find any in mine but i have some comments, not much because i only started recently

i understand if you took long to accept me, and i'll take this opportunity to prove my self and make arashian friends

one more reason why i want to join here is nino T^T

I'll be surfing your LJ <3

Domo I from Malaysia. I have reads all the rules and I promised I will not redistributed , uploaded to streaming sites and claimed yours videos as mine. I must follows your rules as I must respect all of your effort and hardwork.

I have known Arashi since 2010 but I'm not their fan at all. However I turn out to be their fans after I finished my high school and waiting for University.

I love all of Arashi's members but I admired Matsujun the most as He is very determined. He really works hard for the sake not to lose but he is totally cute when he loses. That Emperor is Superb Professional Concert Master.

I hope I can access to all of your subbed videos. Yuroshiku Onegaishimasu. Arigatou Guzaimashita. >
