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!

Looks like Arashi is hyping us up for Sho's drama starting in just several days! (っ´ω`)❤

Like my "Mikan" lyrics translations, the kanji portion was transcribed by ear. Once we get official, written lyrics, I will update this post with missing verses.

Also, this is a friendly reminder that I'll post the lyrics translations for their 「Untitled」 album, so keep your eyes peeled~!


Important notes:
☆Please do not copy-paste my lyrics transcriptions, romaji, or translations to any other online medium (LJ, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, etc.). If you intend to share a segment of this post elsewhere, please ask me first and let me know how you wish to use it. *This includes subbing future TV/concert performances.

☆My translations are not available for retranslating.

Thank you, Nino, for playing an abridged version of Mikan (Unfinished) on BayStorm! (*´ω`*)♪

Well, that only meant one thing: I couldn't fight my urge to translate and share it! The kanji transcriptions, as the word suggests, was done by ear using a static-y radio recording since the official lyrics aren't out anywhere yet. The romaji and translations are, therefore, completely based on my own transcriptions. When the album is out in October, I'll edit as necessary, add the second verse which is missing in this BayStorm version, and post the translations for the rest of the tracks! ;) Keep your eyes peeled!

Happy 5x18, Arashi. ❤

This is a random lyrics post for a number of reasons:
1) I'm still not sure how I should go about posting a massive lyrics translation dump on my journal (without it being too "spammy").
2) It's one of my favorite B-sides from their recent singles, and the lyrics work well for 5x18.
3) I posted videos on Twitter using this song, so I thought it'd be good to provide translations. :)

More posts to come for the 18th anniversary celebration, but it may be on Hawaii time. :P

Pairing: Aiba Masaki x Kusunoki Shion (OC)
Rating: R for whole series, PG for Ch.10
Genre: Romance, Mystery Drama
Word count: 1,758

Plot: Aiba Masaki (29) is the CEO of Yamakaze Hotels, Japan's top hotel chain. What began as a search for a secretary turns into a life-changing matter when he meets candidate Kusunoki Shion (26). As Shion challenges Aiba to question the only world he's ever known, she keeps to herself a dark secret that must remain undisclosed.

Author's Notes: Thanks for stopping by to read my fanfic! :D I have two ongoing series: this one, and Eyes Like Honey (Sakurai Sho fanfic). I beganThe Beautiful Downfall with a clear concept: I wanted to write a dark, DoS Masaki. ;) From there, I jotted down a rough storyline which became The Beautiful Downfall. Each chapter is relatively and deliberately short (under 2,000 words), so they are quicker reads than my other fanfics. Although I'm not sure how many chapters will be in this series, I hope you'll stick around to the end! ❤
