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 ;_; )

I'm now off to fight aliens with Kurono-kun. <3

Hi Emkay!

I'm not sure if you remember me but I've interacted with you and followed you on Twitter (tuktuujaartuq).

I've read your rules and I promise not to redistribute your work on streaming sites. Also, if ever I use your translations, I will always ask for your permission first and credit you. I doubt you've seen my Tom Hiddleston-related tweets but I always strive to include credits.

I'm very new to LJ and have made only one journal post so far. I'm still getting the hang of it. I've commented on a number of post but unfortunately they are not yours.

Would this disqualify me? May I add you to my friends list?

Either way, thank you for your work on the translations.

Hi Emkay! how are you doing? I usually follow your updates on twitter (@daiananoyume) but I definitely want to join your personal page. I think I never tried because my LJ is practically empty. I've been rejected several times for that reason which is completely understandable. I'm actually pretty active around here in terms of commenting and of course I've always respected communities' rules. In that aspect you can rest assured.
Well, so impolite of me not introducing myself properly. I'm Daiana from Argentina. Arashian over 10 years now. Absolutely inlove with them since then. Arashi is my source of strength and joy and inspuiration.
I've carefully read the rules you clearly stated (especially number 3 and 4). Certainly, I promise to abide by them. Hope you can add me back and looking forward to having the chance to share opinions and thoughts with you. I would be honored to do it bearing in mind that you're an arashian since their junior days! *bows*. I apologize for my pitiful english.
Thank you in advance! Take care!

Hi I'm finally here! ;-) I follow you on twitter (genki3fun) and somehow I didn't even think to look for your LJ page until now...

My name is Cindy and I'm a Taiwanese living in the US. I'm been a fan of Arashi since 2000 but since I'm not very tech-savvy I didn't know about LJ or the fandom until recently. Now I'm just playing catch-up! I would love to be your friend. I think I'm one of the older "fangirls" in the fandom, and I'm wondering if you are too.

As for your rules, I promise to follow completely, and only use for my personal enjoyment. I will never upload to streaming sites or steal any of your intellectual property. As I can't understand Japanese entirely (I'm learning tho...slowly--rl gets in the way...) I am very grateful to all the subbers who generously share their talent and time to share Arashi with the rest of us non-Japanese speakers.

I hope to get to know you more and I hope you'll feel the same way back!

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. :)

Hi! I'm Sachin. I'm 23 years old and from the Philippines. I was Jun-baited, proud at that. I first met Jun through Gokusen. Around 2005 or 2006? Seriously, the Sawada Shin smirk... that was just such a powerful, effective bait. And THE hair! I knew then that he was part of a group but I wasn't really much into following news about him, I was just contented watching his dramas. It was with HYD that I started becoming an Arashian. I loooooved the drama and WISH and Love So Sweet and I thought, "Ah so this is the kind of group that Jun is part of? Interesting. " Then I started watching clips of Shukudai-kun and I fell in love with Sho-chan. XD The rest, as they say, is history. However, sometime around 2010 my interests kinda shifted and I took a break from Arashi. But last year, I saw one ep of VS Arashi and my gosh, everything came back to me. I thought my Arashi phase was over but it hit me back stronger than before. LOL So now, here I am. Sorry for the long musing, I got carried away. ;)

Anyway, I first got to know you via twitter. I really enjoyed your con reports and translations. They are torally in my 'instant-retweet/like' radar. I am @riidamn btw. And I am just grateful for someone like you who's just generous to her fellow, well, Arashians. ;) So I am giving my word that I will be responsible and respectful about your works. No reposts, no reuploads of your videos and if I'll ever use any of your translations, I'll make sure to ask for your permission, first and foremost. I am looking forward on getting to know Arashi (more) and you. Thank you! :)

I follow you on Twitter (miharu_tsuki) and I was wondering if I could be your friend in Livejournal? :)
I promise I will follow your rules, and I won't redistribute your subbed videos. I will ask you beforehand if I want to use one of your translations and credit you. :D

Hello! I'm Sorya and I'm from France!! I can assure you that I'm an Arashi fan or Arashian :P I don't remember when I started to love them but it was around 2008, and I have to thank youtube, because I knew them through dramas but they didn't interest me. Then, I saw a video of them in youtube and I wanted to try, they were already pretty popular and it was an episode of Utaban with a compilation of their fights x) it was so hilarious and I fell in love with Ohno and I wanted to thank the fansubs to let me get into them, now I know them, and I love all the members :D Even though I'm less into Jpop and more into Kpop, I have a group that I love so much in Kpop, they can't be my favorite because of Arashi, I can't let them, they're so awesome and perhaps because they're my first group that I really loved! I respect the fansubs for showing me more about Arashi, so I won't steal your subs (usually I just want to watch their videos, I want to understand them so I don't make fanvid or else, but if I do it, I will ask for your permission for sure! And I won't put them online, I promise), sorry I'm not really good in English, I hope you will understand my comment, please accept me :D (But I'm not sure what to do so I will just add you as my friend, because I wouldn't know if you added me or not)

Hi Emkay! I'm adding you as a friend, and of course I promise to follow the rules. I'm an Arashi fan too, so I always enjoy reading some love flailing posts about them :D I'm also following you on Twitter, so I guess this is a chance to thank you for your translations. Hope you can add me back,

I'm Idoia and I'm from the Basque Country. Just adding you to keep track of your journal, LJ it's a mess when it comes to find certain journals again without doing so. I'll be back to properly introduce myself or whatevs if you don't add me back this time.

Anyway, big Arashi fan here, so thanks a LOT for sharing your work. Hope we can know each other better and sure, someday be able to watch those yummy vids of yours! I shall only use your videos to watch them alone, in my living room XD, so you have my word that I won't break any of the rules mentioned above. I do highly respect those who invest so much time working to share Arashi stuff. I do write and draw myself- would never take advantage of other's work.

You can take a look at my journal, wich is mostly full of ohmiya trash T_T.

I'm Joanne from Australia. I'm a uni student and an Arashi fan for about a year and a half. i got into them from VSA on tv here, then Hana Yori but eventually fell hard into everything Arashi. My fav is Nino for his attitude and sass but also his warm heart and smarts. Apart from that I love all the other members equally.
I've also recently started getting into other Johnny's in the last few months. Mainly Johnny's West, KAT TUN, Kanjani, Sexy Zone and Hey Say. This years Johnny's Countdown was like a gateway drug lol.
There's more on my love for Arashi on my LJ but I honestly don't post there often just because I feel like I've got nothing to contribute seeing as I don't understand Japanese. But I do comment often on posts and if you ever want to DM/comment I tend to reply quickly!
I'm also on tumblr a lot more then LJ(~ every week) so if you want you can hit me up there http://seefewrights.tumblr.com/

Anyways, I promise to follow the rules, respect your work and keep it to myself.

I'm fan of Nino and I love "Ao no honoo" to death, so actually "Ao no honoo" brought me here.
I don't really use my LJ account since while ago, cause it's pretty hard for me to create posts in english, so I'm sorry for this.
The thing is that I've found through google some links on your translation of "cast interview", I also saw some screencaps on tumblr. So I really wonder how and where I could watch it, cause I can't find the video anywhere else. Could you help me with that? Even RAW-video? I want it SO MUCH T_T
I won't do anything with your translation anyway,because I translate some videos from Japanese to Russian as well, so I understand how much time it takes.
Thank you in advance.

P.S. Also thank you for translations of Bay storm, my level of Japanese is just Nouryoku N3,it's not high,so sometimes it's really hard to understand what he's talking about. Especially his reading of fan's messages is so fast, I just absolutely can't get it from time to time,lol

Hello! My name is Gab, and I, like probably everyone else who has commented on your post, am a huge fan of Arashi. I've read your guidelines and rules and I can assure you that I won't be violating them (any violation is counterproductive to every reasonable person who wants to be able access subbed or translated materials on Arashi).

I've recently been trying to go back to old Arashi shows since I really fell in love with them during their ANiS, HNA and Odoroki days :) I'm a super Aiba Masaki fan because of these shows, and was actually Aiba-baited rather than Jun-baited to the fandom.

I hope you add me back. Thank you :)

My name is alexandra and i'm from milan , italy . I found your LJ while looking communities for arashi .
I really love arashi they are the first group that i ever liked becaue before i wasn't interested in any groups or singer .
I knew arashi by watching dramas ( HanaDan ) and i was interested in Matsujun and the songs that were used in that drama but i like Ohno :P My ichiban at first was Matsujun but when i knew a little about them i started to like ohno ^_^. Everyone is pretty interesting and they were for a month my ichiban ^_^ but now i like ohno , i don't really care about they flawless (?) in the past because if i am a true fan ill be able to accept them and continue to support them.
Recently there were some fans that said that Haru ( the co-star in Ohno Spring Drama) looked like his ex girlfriend and some fans were mad about that , i was like ''really?'' like he is 35 years old now he should be married or have atleast a girlfriend , don't you want a little Satoshi too? Like what will be his personalities ? I hope that everyone gets married and have a child and what if there are boys in each family , like they could be Arashi second generation xD
I promise that i will keep the files for myseld and won't post them in any streaming site/s or claim them as mine .
Hope to be friend ! :)
I don't have any friends in RL that likes arashi , they like Kpop >.< , hope to be friends ! ^_^
