[identity profile] amnosxmatsujun.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] amnosxsubs
Hello fellow Arashians, and welcome to [livejournal.com profile] amnosxsubs, the home of my subbed videos!

For those who already know me, I apologize in advance for this somewhat necessary introduction. For those who I will be "meeting" for the first time, hello, and what a pleasure to see you here. I'm not going to ask you to read through this post if you don't want to; this is just an "about me" post, so to speak, so you know what kind of person I am. I've made it in Q&A format (though I'm not sure if anyone really wants to know the answers to these, lol). I'm also hoping that this post will be a forewarning for all the crazy that goes on in here. xD

1. Who are you?
I'm Emkay. :) Please feel free to call me that whenever you address me. I was Aiba-baited, seduced by Jun, but then had my heart stolen by his hamburger hands. :3 Completely and utterly smitten with the brat of the group. But totally have indecent thoughts about Sho, let's not get me started.

2. How long have you been an Arashi fan? In LJ fandom?
I've been a fan of theirs since their Junior days, dating back to 1996. *_* I surprise myself when I actually count the years on my fingers. As for the LJ fandom, this will be my seventh year here. I've been subbing since I opened an LJ account, and am also an active translator at [livejournal.com profile] stormy_team. :)

3. Who is your OTP?
NinoAi.NinoAi.NinoAi.Yamataro.NinoAi.NinoAi.NinoAi. <3 Also, #shoyourpurpleisshowing xD

4. What do you do outside of fandom?
(Are you still reading? Thanks, hehe!) I am a full-time producer and translator/interpreter. I work mostly in the Japanese entertainment industry, producing variety shows and dramas, occasionally movies. I also serve as interpreter for foreign press and stars, and translate for some news programs (no, not ZERO unfortunately *yet* xD) During my off days and when I can, I play and perform on the cello. It's my first love and I am a music nerd. 8)

5. Why did you decide to open up this community?
You can read the detailed account HERE (and I kindly ask that you do give that a read), but in short, I wanted to find a better way to share. I didn't think I would be subbing as much as I have, and I still intend to continue subbing. I thought that by creating a "home" for my subs, I can keep better track of releases. Plus, I was not expecting so much demand and support for my subs. Thank you all for that, and I hope that this community will be a fun place to visit! I would love to get to know as many members as I can, so don't be afraid to comment on the posts. Let's be friends <3

6. What does your username mean?
"Isn't your ichiban Nino? Then why does it say 'matsujun'?" I get this question. A lot. And especially from friends. xD Well, I admit it: it's misleading. My ichiban is Nino, yes. So, why does it say "matsujun"? Because when I opened an account on LJ, I was still a Purple girl, and had been for ten years. With "help" from other fans, I turned over to the Yellow side... but the name stuck, so I kept it. :P

7. What about your translations?
I also mention this in the membership post, but my translations will still be posted over at my personal LJ. All translations (radio shows and magazines) will be left unlocked and available to read. You do not need to join this community in order to enjoy my translations. ^^

8. Will there be a way we can keep track of releases?
*nods* Of course! There's a link to the projects list in the sidebar, and releases will be announced as they come on twitter. Feel free to follow me there: @amnosxmatsujun :D I'm super active there, so feel free to poke me. I love chatting with fellow Arashians!

Don't be afraid to ask me any other questions (though I doubt you have any :P)! If you managed to read it all... I think I have a crush on you. ;)

Wheeee!!!! Congratulations on being able to put up (finally!) a community! :)

I love this post. I think maybe because I love reading about your thoughts (even though I might have known most of these even before reading :P).

And I kinda miss commenting on your posts, actually. It's just that RL has taken over, and internet access has been difficult lately XD So I'm kinda glad it's great timing that I saw your post about this and I that I am able to comment now. :P

And yes, NinoAi. NinoAi. NinoAi. ♥♥♥

do you get to meet actual hollywood stars there?? omg if u were to meet mr. hollywood himself i think ud die hehehe when i saw nino in LA i was in the 3rd row dead center at the Gantz premiere and boy, hehehe is that man TINY and SOOO good looking it was ridiculous, and lets not forget those leather pans the stylist had him in hahahaha i loved it.

Oh my. You are a translator in RL? That's just... so cool! I remember the HnA episode when Sho featured the job of a translator.

Fifteen years? Wow! I just become a fan last 2009. (I was watching HanaDan Final when I heard One Love, and that was it for me. I became an official fan of Sho when I saw that clip of him when he was wearing a "space suit" and he claimed he wanted to protect the world.)

With the fear that my reply would be as long as your post, I'll just end it with a pat on the back. You did well. I am sure you will continue to share the love, so thank you. I am looking forward to hearing more from you. ;)

It is so nice to meet such longtime fan! ^.^ You must know so much about them! *.* And your work and your RL seems so interesting! ^.^ Playing the cello must not be easy…
Anyway, I just feel kind of sad to know that you left our purple boy… But the yellow boy is cute too! And I really like Aimiya! ^.^
Thanks for sharing a little about yourself with us! ^.^ One of the most interesting things on LJ is to be able to get to know people from all over the world with so many different life stories! ^.^

Hello Emkay! I just posted in the 'how to join' post, but decided to come read this post about you. So you've been a fan for 15 years? WOW....I mean, I've only got to know Arashi for about 4 years....you are amazing. Do you live in Japan? Since you said you do translating work in the entertainment industry, btw that is awesome.

January 5th, 2012 23:40 (UTC)
[identity profile] tuski-no-hime.livejournal.com
wow you are awesome!!!! even though you interpret/translate full time ... you still find time to sub and share goodies with us who are so unfortunate not to really know the language. all i have to say is thank you! thank you so much for being so sweet enough to share and to open up this community! i read your whole introductory post and you are just such a sweet girl!!!! <3 <3 <3

i look forward to being a member and to all your wonderful gifts that you will be showering us all with!!! <3 <3 <3

So much respect to you for being a fan for that long! Also, your job sounds so cool! A translator used to be my dream job. And omg you play the cello. I love love love the cello. There's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of for being a music nerd! I play piano and flute so count me in :P

Your story is really similar to mine. I fell in love with the giggly Aiba on VSA then realized MatsuJun was the guy in HYD then somehow ended up with a Nino-bias :P Also, you are amazing for loving NinoAi ♥

Basically, you seem like an awesome person xD I'm looking forward to the future of this community and hopefully getting to know you a bit better :)

ohh cool~ i also didnt know that you work as a translator/interpreter...since i know that you play cello (based on you intro post in your personal lj) i thought you would be in an orchestra or something...ohh i hope you can work in news zero and work alongside sho! that'd be really awesome dont you think? LOL ;)

am also jun-baited but now i am a full time nino fan but of course i ♥ them all! and you are right nino is such a brat but we know we love him for that! and my OTP is OhMiya though Yama is also close to my ♥!

Hey this is a great intro link! Not too long and it's also entertaining!

My best friend also works in Japan as a translator. She also does lyrics/composing/and the occasional English vocals for artists. My ultimate plan is to also go over there in the same job in the next two years.

Anyway, just wanted to say I enjoyed your post, and am very grateful you are sharing your translations and subbing. And you sound like you would be a fun person to chat with as well.

i've just read the membership post and i'm off to see the very articulate and witty founder of this community.. hello, Emkay! i loved reading about you and i'm so envious, you have quite an awesome job. i'm glad that you never tire of subbing and translating for the fandom even when you almost do the same for a living (which is just, again, AWESOME♪).. you practically grew up with Arashi, another reason i'm green with envy. it was Hanadan that did it for me, heard Jun was a member of the group that sang Wish and that got me, hook line and sinker. but i don't really have an ichiban. i used to just listen to Arashi's music but when i discovered the joys of subbed variety shows, concerts and doramas (courtesy of wonderful people such as yourself) i just fell hard for the boys (yes, boys. since i'm quite an old maid hehe). 'nyways, this is getting long but let me say thank you for opening a community to share your work and much luck to you, ms.Emkay!

Yess!! I found the urge to post a comment after reading through what you wrote, even though I'm just a random stranger haha~ Nino is my ichiban (I was nino-baited though) and aiba is my niban, so finding out that you liked ninoai made me start grinning like an idiot! ^^

And something random, I'm a music nerd too! :D *gives aiba-style "yeahhhh"* (Er, if you know what I mean~)

Your job is so amazing! And 15 years of being in the fandom is unbelievable, I hope my loyalties last that long too <3
I'm quite excited to find a nino-ichiban subber, so I'm spazzing now, but I'll be joining! ^^

Lately I am being smitten by Mr Hollywood too, despite, Mr Fisherman is my ichiban and the Purple otoko that baited me into the everlasting Rainbow dream xD. But who can resist each one of them, with their unique charms and craziness and smexiness... XD

Congrats for the new community and happy new year

Thanks for sharing. I love to read this post.
I am really really really jealous of you for being their fan for 15 years.
I've got two years. I was a purple girl too but changing from green to blue to red to yellow to purple. :P
Sorry to ask you very personal question.. If you don't want to answer, you can ignore it.
Are you older or younger than Arashi? For me, you can say that we are in same generation.
I wonder about your 15 years.. :D
Ok. Yoroshiku..

thanks for creating a subbing community. im really amazed that you can still sub arashi files when you have tons of subbing work to do. you still sub at stormy team ryt? You are sooo close to meeting arashi, afterall, you have been working for the entertainment industry. dont you hear stories/things about them from some of the stuff? and lastly, im glad you are still part of the yellow team. ^^ (especially if there are temptations around aka hot aiba, smarty sho, cuticle ohno and cool matsumoto) :) /hugshugs

It was great to get to know more about you! ^^

I can understand why you turned to the yellow side, the brat is just irresistible ne! My ichiban is Ohno and will always be Ohno, this fact will never change but my niban keeps changing between Sho and Nino. A while ago I thought that it was definitely Sho but then came Nino with his smirks and stole my heart again! <3

Wow it must be great to be a full-time translator ne! Sugoi!!

Congrats on the new comm! ^_~

Hi, I enjoyed reading your intro post :)

I've always wanted to meet someone who has been a fan of Arashi since their debut, and you've been one for 15 years! :) Also, I think being a translator is an awesome job! :) I'm very interested in culture and languages, so I also dabble in language learning, including Nihonggo :)

Thank you for sharing your translations and subs. Looking forward to them and to flailing with you and fellow Arashi fans :) Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Wow, you translate full-time in RL too? Thanks so much for doing more of your "job" when you don't have to! I'm glad you opened up a community, so that you can still have your personal LJ private. :)

PS - I was seduced by Jun as well, but Nino is totally my fave at this point. ;)

I wanted to say something cool to someone as awesome as you, but I've never been good with words, so I fail..

I'm amazed to find someone Aiba-baited, more amazed that you've managed to stay as their fan through all these years.I am most amazed that Nino-Ai is your OTP, although I've known it for some time since I'm one of those who stalk your journal for Rekommen translations, thank you for those btw.

I'm actually confused if Nino-Ai is my OTP. I just love them both individually that seeing/watching/reading them together gives me 1000x the happiness of watching them on their own.

Actually, all I wanted to say was thank you for sharing everything you've shared these past few years, and thank you for taking this step.

I'm quite new to LJ, but I'm really looking forward to being a member of this community (I think you're still processing my application).
And yes, I started as a MJ fan, but after some months Nino conquered me for good XD

It took me ages to join your community. BOO
NinoAi. Oh NinoAi. I think the brat shows his genuine feelings of love and affection by bullying him.

I DO LOVE QUESTION NUMBER 6. I feel a teeny bit guilty for being one of the magnets to the spirally roller coaster that is yellow lando but.... the brat has welcomed you with open arms. Did you, by any chance, bumped into his one pack when you were spiraling your way in?

Luv luv you dear. cheers for the new community.
May you randomly see Nino and know that it's him. And not die. Poke at his one pack for me.

I would like to also introduce myself ^^

I'm a recent fan from Portugal and i apply recently to this community ^^ To be honest i wasn't baited by any of the members in the beginning i was baited by they talent in the variety show arashi ni shiyagare when i was looking for some comedy jap videos and got relly impressed by them.
but short after that i fell in love in our beloved Riida Ohno satoshi <3 i seriously love this man!
and my passion for those 5 silly boys is incresing day by day. I'm a really recent fan but already seems like i'm a fan for ages! They are just amazing ... it's unbelievable how easily they can catch your heart! LOVE THEM <3
I also want to tell how much respect i have for people like you that spend their free time helping people like me ( non japanese speaker) subbing videos and translating articles so fans like me can enjoy what this 5 adorable idiots are saying and know more about them.
also the fact that you reply to us and want to be friend with us is a extra point and i really appreciate that. to be honest i'm really impressed how the arashi fandom is so nice and generous.
Thank you so much for all the hard work you've been doing and hope we can be friends ^^

Hi! =)
I'm Ely~ :D
I read everything and I'm amazed! XD
It's awesome that you work as a translator both here in LJ and in RL! Knowing different languages is really hard.. o_O
I do hope that you get to work in ZERO someday! Haha :D

...It's also awesome that you've been in the fandom for 15+years! WOAH! I've only been a fan for about 5 years...
I must say, at first, I thought MatsuJun was your ichiban 'cuz of your name :)) But now I know it's Nino. (Mine's MatsuJun BTW~ XD)

And it's so cool that you can play the cello!! XD I really wanna try playing it but the violin's hard enough so I decided to keep practicing it instead of switching to another instrument XD

Anyway, I really look forward to becoming a member of this comm!
Again, thanks so much for the hard work!! =D

I know I am very late but this was a really interesting read. I have always wondered why your handle has 'Matsujun' when you're into Nino. Now I know.

It's also especially interesting to find out your field of work. What a job :)

I've been in your comm for a little while but just came upon this now. Very interesting and inspirational. I think every Arashian should have this in their LJ. I'm always curious why people choose their username. Mine is stupid. I just randomly picked something that sounded decent at the time, but now I wish I can change it. Oh well.

I'm jealous you do what you do. Firstly, I would love to be able to understand Japanese. Or even just be IN Japan. One day I will go back...that I'm determined to do. ;-)

I'm curious, who of the Johnnys (besides arashi) do you like/did you follow? Even though I'm newer in the fandom, I followed Johnnys a little bit when I was in Japan in 1999/2000. My first crush was Takki. But oh what's happened to him since...
