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

My name is Sheranino and been Arashi's fan since December last year ^___^
I like watching the boys on their TC shows (I think they're the only boy bands that can look cool when actually they're being dorks) and I enjoy reading their fanficts in LJ communities (ArashiRabu, Ohmiya, KotobaYori, etc).
Since I like Ohmiya so much, I've written a series about them too (it has reached its 7th sequel by now) and I put them in my LJ.
Anyway, I wish you can add me as your friend.
I agree to abide the rules to not re-distribute in any kinds of forms and to PM you for permission if I ever want to use any of your translation and picture. ^_____^

I hope that's enough :D
Jya, yoroshiku onegaishimasu.... m(_ _)m

Hi, can I add you friend?
I'm Meina, I love Arashi because their bonds, they're like brothers, like family that you rarely see in other bands nowadays. When on stage they look very cool, but in the normal life I can't expect that they're so simple, and crazy + baka too (XD). Watching Arashi no Shukudai-kun and G no Arashi, D no Arashi, they're friendly and familiar, the baka face of Ohchan, Aiba's kawaii face, Jun childish face ... people can see the boundary between the idol and baka actually very close (haha ...), then I discovered Arashi's a few secrets, as Ohchan likes fishing, Nino likes game , Aiba very love animal...
Besides that, Arashi do a lot of things for the sake of social community. Who have watchded 24HTV or Mago will know, Arashi not only sugoi+ baka but also very kind. Arashi win everybody's heart because of that XDXDXD
Have a nice day ^^

Hey, I wish to be added! Love Arashi loads and I hope to get to know more. I will not redestribute your work of any form, be it translations or videos, and i really appreciate the hard work and effort that you've put in for the fandom. Thank you so much in advance :)

I hope you don't mind but I added you. It seemed like it would be fun to read your flailings anyway. You really don't have to add me back as I hardly update at a regular pace anyway and tend to ramble. xD It's great what you're doing though. I really do feel like their radio shows are such an excellent way to understand them a little better. And at least somewhat more reliable then magazines. At least in Nino's case.

Hi, I just found your place after I was wandering around to look for more arashi goodies. I dunno why but lately i have been addicted to watch arashi. Maybe it will be a bad thing if i cannot control it. But right now, arashi is so addicting !!! >_<
Oh, I forgot, I need to say that I will follow all of the rules. I have no intention to re-distribute the arashi video anywhere else online or even to sell it.
But watching arashi has been nothing but pure joy, they are all so happy =v=. They made me happy when i am depressed. (or maybe i have no friend =_=)
I hope that I will be given the chance to know you ^^.
Thank you !

Hi^^ i noticed your nick and guess what? we have something in common cough*MATSUJUN*cough ne?
Well Arashi is what first got me into asia and pretty boys and i was ofcourse jun-baited, who can resist that boy.
about me as a person is that i am to lazy to post someone elses work, just why the hell should I. i do not understand people who would waste thei time like that when they can be watching the video instead.
I love Pretty little arashi lovers and hope that they love me back^^ Please let me watch your videos and maybe het to know you if you want?

aloha ^^/

First of all I want to thank you for your hard work and for sharing Arashi-love even if it's illegal. :) <3 I'm really really grateful. For us non-japanese you're an angel on earth, seriously.

I absolutely agree to obey the rules and I won't sell, repost, redistribute, stream, or upload any of these videos elsewhere. I just want to watch our bishies. -^__^-

I also want to apologize for some grammar and spelling mistakes. And I have to tell you that I didn't use LJ regularly till now. I'm just .. not the blogger type.. xD I read your rules properly and saw that you won't add blank journals. ~_~ But I still wanted to try and ask you if you would add me? At least I'd do my best to comment your posts regularly.

pls keep on with your hard work, we appreciate it!
kind regards, Serenity :)

Arashi is my Crack too!

I too need my daily dosage(at least). although I love all 5 members my personal fav is Sho-chan ^^. I'm going to add you to my friends and hopefully you'll do the same. I'm on LJ pretty much daily, but i mostly just leave comments on subs that people or communities im a part of have. I am pretty much confused as to how to use LJ effectively. lol so i usually keep in touch with online friends at another site.(LJ is more confusing then DA) lol anyways i still hope you add me and i promise that i wouldnt break any of the rules. I'm just a fan that wants to enjoy Arashi as much as possible and posting vids on streaming sites is not something id ever do.

-Thanks! :)
