It's been a loooooong time coming, but I finally wrote up a FAQ to keep linked up on the Taiji Project profile. Keep in mind that this is subject to change.

Massively long, so click here to readCollapse )

Got a question that wasn't answered here? Ask away in a comment, and I'll either answer you directly or add it to the FAQ (or both)!

Sure, I just approved you now ^^ Welcome aboard and enjoy!

I was wondering if there is like a list of all Arashi subbed videos anywhere?! I remember seeing one a long time ago but I have no idea where it went. I've been on Je-Index (I don't know if you've heard of that) but it didn't list their Tv shows like Hna or AnS. Thank you~ I love your fansubs by the way!! :D
May. 15th, 2009 05:18 am (UTC)
Oops, so sorry for the delay! D: But yeah, there's a very up-to-date and complete list of Arashi subs at yuckie_chan's journal ^^
May. 6th, 2009 10:27 am (UTC)
Becky, you're amazing^^!
*i didn't know where to post this so... guess here is good?XD*

thank you for providing us with your great sub *_*
people like me who can barely understand daily sentences would be lost without you ^^!


*yeah, and I'm not an english speaker too, so forgive me for mistakes^^ I'm better at reading and understanding than writing and speaking^^
May. 15th, 2009 05:20 am (UTC)
I'm just glad I can contribute something to the fandom, and even happier to hear that people are enjoying them ^__^ So thank you for the message! (and your English sounds great to me :D)
May. 12th, 2009 07:28 pm (UTC)
I just wanted to say, thank you for all the work you do! Your subs make my day :) I've taken a lot of your subs and I didn't really comment a lot... sorry about that... but from now on I promise to comment more. Thank you again!
May. 15th, 2009 05:22 am (UTC)
Hehe, no problem! I'm a natural lurker myself so I understand completely ^^ Still, thank you for the shout and I'm glad you've been enjoying stuff around here! :D

Arashi - Green
Hello Becky,
May I make another request? :)
It's Green by Arashi.
I read report that they sang in Dream A Live concert but not in CD.
So, I just found it on YT.
If it's possible, could you please translate it?
Thanks in advance.
Here's the link

Re: Arashi - Green
Oh, I always wondered about that song... and it looks like I can pick most or all of the lyrics out of the video since they're on screen, so sure, I'll give it a shot sometime ^_^

Reading this post again I must say that I am thankful to you. Very very thankful. You're like a hero to me. How you manage everything and sharing your passion with everyone *sniff*

Thank you Becky!Thank you!! ♥ ♥
May. 30th, 2009 05:55 am (UTC)
Aww, it's my pleasure to have something to give back to the fandom that has done so much for me ♥ Knowing that people are enjoying it makes all the effort worthwhile, so thank you for the sweet comment! ^__^

Help, I cannot watch the videos
It seems that i cannot watch the videos, the videos are in avi. What can i do? do i need to convert or download any software? thanks
May. 30th, 2009 05:52 am (UTC)
Re: Help, I cannot watch the videos
.avi files play in the most common players like Windows Media Player, Realplayer, and Winamp, but my personal recommendation is VLC Player. If you use this and it still won't play, you probably just need to install the latest DivX codec. That should take care of it ^^
Jun. 6th, 2009 11:24 am (UTC)
I'm a new Arashi fan and I'm so looking forward to watching a ton of their various tv shows. Thank you so much for making that possible! I have a question that I don't see the answer to here: is it against your wishes that I make picspams from files you have hardsubbed and uploaded here? A few places I've seen have specified that graphics are okay, but I don't see it here and I would hate to take something that I'm so grateful for and use it in a way that isn't allowed.
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
Oh, sure, I have no problem at all with picspams! I actually consider them a good subtle advertising medium XD

Thanks for checking with me first! ^^
Jun. 25th, 2009 03:44 pm (UTC)
your works are really great :) Thank you for your hard work on these. Uhm i have a question. Is it okay if ill share 1-3screencaps from your video on my blog? :D
Jun. 26th, 2009 01:56 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, sharing screencaps is always cool with me! Good subtle promotion too, lol :D

hi.. just a new member, i just want to ask if you will also sub the Tokyo Friend Park II with the SMILE cast as the guest?
i found a link for the raw video file of it and i think no one has ever subbed it before.. ^_^
Jul. 18th, 2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
That episode is actually currently being worked on by stormy_team, so it should be available fairly soon ^^

i know this is a stupid question but where are the videos because i can't find it.
Jul. 25th, 2009 07:58 am (UTC)
I sent an invitation to the community for you here in response to your add request; you'll have to accept it for the videos to become accessible. After that, you'll be able to see all of them just by visiting the community homepage normally. ^^
Jul. 24th, 2009 07:00 am (UTC)
dear taiji project,
firstly, i wanna say.. thank you so much for your hard work to sharing all videos with subbing..
minna so kind ne.. hehehe :D
secondly, i'm looking video about nickname from Jun to Ohno 'Sammy'..
can't you help me for that..
thank you so much for your help..

Jul. 26th, 2009 04:57 am (UTC)
I don't remember Jun calling Ohno "Sammy," but the Sammy nickname is explained in a Mago Mago Arashi episode with Ohno and Nino, and I've subbed that here. I think two episodes after that one had Ohno and Jun, so maybe that was where Jun used the nickname? I can't remember for sure ^^; But I hope this helps!

Jul. 27th, 2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
Uwah, first off, I'd like to thank you for EVERYTHING that you have subbed/translated!!! I'm so grateful for that. @__@

I am wondering, however, if you could translate one of Ohno's solos from 3104 Yen, "Size". I've looked all over, and I couldn't find a translation for it. It's one of my favorite solos...so I'd love to know what he's saying. XD

And I'm also wondering if it's okay to use snippets of your translations for Arashi songs in my stories (*is a proud fanfic writer)?

Thank you so much in advance! ^.^;;;
Aug. 3rd, 2009 04:13 am (UTC)
Hmm, Size is actually one that I've tried to work with a few times (I think the original plan was to pair it up with Cool a while back), but it's a hard one because there's no full transcription of the Japanese lyrics to be found anywhere, and there are a few lines of Engl(r?)ish that apparently nobody can make sense of. x_x I still open it up to take another shot now and then, but not much luck yet...

But anyway, sure, using lines in fanfic is always cool with me! ^^
Aug. 5th, 2009 06:59 am (UTC)
need your help
hello there~ i have trouble about the videos on Tokyo Friends Park II. i have completely downloaded part 1 but my video player cant play it. i've tried playing it with vlc, media player, K-Multimedia Player and DivX player but the result is still the same. when i check it with gspot, it says the videos are not a valid avi file. Do you have any suggestion on how i can watch the videos? Please help me..

Thanks alot =)
Aug. 13th, 2009 04:16 am (UTC)
Re: need your help
Do you mean you downloaded a file labeled "part 001" (usually from Mediafire)? If so, that's not actually a video file; the ones called 001, 002, 003, etc. are just split parts of the video, and they all need to be joined together to make the complete avi file. You can use HJSplit to join the parts. ^^

Sorry if this reply came too late and you've already fixed the problem, or if I'm answering the wrong problem ^^; Let me know if you still have any trouble!
Aug. 11th, 2009 08:19 pm (UTC)
I was wondering if you could translate Nino and ohno's duet(?), I think it's called High and Low:


and of course, i'd also like to thank you for doing ALL the tranlating, subbing, and uploading all by yourself (O_O so much work!)
lols~ it's really amazing.
you and arashi have really brightened my currently damp and depressing life~, so Thank You x a million!!:DDDD
Aug. 18th, 2009 07:08 pm (UTC)
Hmm, I'll have to hunt around for the kanji for that one... but yeah, I'll save the song and see if I can work something out sometime ^^
Aug. 18th, 2009 12:15 am (UTC)
Hi Becky,

sorry for choosing such random place to ask but I was wondering if it would be a big problem for you to translate few (six or something) TOKIO's songs? ;^^
Aug. 20th, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
I'd certainly be glad to try them, though I've been sucking at translating lyrics lately and have several months of requests backed up now, so it might take me a while to get to them ^^; But other than that, nah, I wouldn't mind giving them a look!

Sep. 19th, 2009 05:26 pm (UTC)
hey becky, just wanted to say that i think you're doing a great job on the fansubs even though you're one person doing everything, i seriously enjoy the subs that you do because they are not only accurate they're also carefully phrased not to mention grammatically correct, etc etc etc. /is too fussy. i really appreciate all of the hard work that you've put in to have done such a good job in your subs - i think you're simply amazing! ♥_♥ if i could i would like to be a translator after i graduate, so you're a real inspiration XDDDD

also, i think it's fab that you reply to random comments in the entries. with the amount of comments you probably get everyday you must have read every single comment to be able to reply to them?! that is just amazing. *__*

Sep. 28th, 2009 07:24 pm (UTC)
^__^ I'm so glad you feel that way! I'm ridiculously fussy about making things as correct and smooth as possible too, so it's really encouraging to know the effort is paying off :D Thank you!

Hehe, it may take me forever to reply (obviously :P), but I definitely read all my comments, no matter what! I only wish I could reply to more of them o_o I feel like it's the least I can do since everyone here is so awesome and encouraging ♥
Sep. 20th, 2009 09:52 am (UTC)
Hi, I wasn't sure where the best place to ask this was. More and more lately, I've been really interested in the food shown in AnS. If I were to take snapshots of just the food and state the food assignment for that episode -- example: "AnS #80: Rare and delicious yakisoba" -- in my lj, would that be okay with you?
Sep. 28th, 2009 07:26 pm (UTC)
Ack, sorry for the late reply - but sure, screencaps are always cool with me! And I agree that many of the foods they show off on AnS deserve a bit more spotlight *_*

Hey thank you for your subs guys!

I´ve got a question:
I found a movie named "Shinjuku Shounen Tantei-dan"
I didn´t know it before, but aiba & jun are in it
I found the file but no subs
Could anybody of you make it?

It would be very nice

(Sorry for the brash question, but I truly despair Q___Q)
Sep. 28th, 2009 08:07 pm (UTC)
Ah, I've vaguely heard of that movie... surprised it hasn't been subbed after all these years o_o I've never done a movie so I'm not sure if I'd have any luck with it, but I'll save it and try to take a look at some point when time allows ^^

Nov. 9th, 2009 12:49 pm (UTC)
Becky, you're a LEGEND. I can't believe you subbed ALL the D and G no Arashi episodes! >_< i'm on my way in D no Arashi determined to finish watching it by the end of this year. thank you so much for all the effort you put into subbing Arashi videos. you, hands down, win my vote for the friendliest subber in Arashi fandom ^__^ oh and I kinda love how you're all OCD about things since i'm also a bit of a perfectionist myself ^^;; anyways, i just wrote to tell you how much i appreciate your work so GANBATTE NE! (^.~)v

Nov. 9th, 2009 12:58 pm (UTC)
ah sorry i forgot to ask for a request, could you possibly try to translate Arashi's new single, My Girl? i've seen some translations out there but it just doesn't really seem to capture the meaning of the song like the way you would translate it. so onegaishimasu, when you have the time.. m(_ _)m thanks again, becky~~!

Thank you so much for your hard work.
This post has literally became sort of a tutorial for me. (:
I really really do appreciate your effort in subbing ALL those crazy DnA episodes.
Thank you so much!
I'm in the midst of downloading them but I haven't commented on any of the entries. hehe
I will, someday. ^^
But just to let you know, I support your work as a subber and such a nice person to share this with the rest of the world.
Thank you again!
Dec. 12th, 2009 06:23 am (UTC)
Heh, I'm hopelessly late in replying (as usual), but just wanted to thank you for the comment and the support ^__^ This fandom has been so awesome to me since I came out of nowhere with my little DnA fansub endeavor, and it really does make all the effort worthwhile! (As if getting to watch Arashi's most hilarious moments over and over through the subbing process wasn't motivation enough... XD)

Anyhow, thanks again and I hope you'll continue to enjoy all the stuff that pops up here! :D
