Introduction + Team Bios (Come and get to know us!)

NOTE: To We've moved around the introduction post and rules to make it easier to understand how to apply. Thus, we've created a separate page for the introduction and added the team's bios to introduce the comm to the team ^_^

Hello and Welcome to Mirai_no_iro!
We're actually the former team of sora_takaku and we've decided to make comeback into the subbing world! We're sorry to say but former members of sora_takaku will still need to re-apply for membership. We're making a fresh start.

A short introduction of Mirai_no_iro: T
his is another English Arashi media community made of fans for fellow fans. We only provide hardsubbed videos, no soft subs. As much as we would want to, we do not guarantee regular posts as we are all either working already, or are students. We do not sub a particular series (maybe occasionally), but whatever we feel like. Therefore, you will pretty much find a mixture of everything so we hope that you will like what you'll find here! Your opinion counts in the community, so please participate by dropping comments and providing us with your feedback, you know we love both! xD This way you can help us provide you with better subs better and encourage us to sub more! Comments and/or feedback can of course be left in the appropriate post, but if you prefer email, you can contact us at You can find this in the sidebar too =) Also, in an effort to involve the community with team decisions, we are going to open a requests page so please look forward to that too! ^-^
And that's about it! Yoroshiku ne!
Together, let's paint our tomorrow with the colors of Arashi~ ^_^

Blurb: a proud member of the ST Squad (aka crazy people who stay awake for days just for Arashi’s sake..or just for the sake of weird, crazy and hentai chat sessions! And it’s not en euphemism..none of it..) My biggest dream is to go live in Japan but I'm currently living in a house with a ghost! I was pulled into the fanfic world by someone whose name should be kept under secret. And I’m so grateful at Arashi for so many reasons that I wouldn’t even know where to start from. <3</span>

Fav song: I can't decide!! My first PV was Kitto Daijoubu and its one of my fav songs. 5x10 is a given because it shows that Arashi is perfection when they come together ♥
Fav drama: Hohoho.. I've watched sooo many.. If it's the ones with Arashi in it.. HanaDan! xD And TQS2 cause Sho-chan is BEYOND hotness xD Blurb: Currently in Uni so I'm mostly sleep-deprived xD Arashi is the soft, comfy couch I come back to and I try to make time for the boys no matter how crazy my life is. Yappari, getting to know Arashi has changed my life. I'm currently studying Japanese and taking Economics (I don't know how you do it Sho-chan!! TT^TT) As much as they sang 5x10 for us, I want to take it all and give it back to them because they've given us so so much ♥

Favorite Drama: Hands down with it being the「花より男子」series and movie
Blurb: Oh dear you're asking for a blurb?! Well, I got Jun baited into the fandom after watching Jun's drama 「花より男子」 and got hooked into their music by 「サクラ咲ケ」I'm fairly active in many of the Arashi fansubbing communities that are out there and I've even created a community myself where I post my shop photo scans as well as my VSA episodes that I've subbed myself.

Years as an Arashian: Since 2009
Ichiban: Aiba
Favorite Pairing/OTP: Sakuraiba and JunMa
Favorite Song: Huh, this is a hard one... Probably 5x10, 明日の記憶,アオゾラペダル,どこでもある唄,ふるさと,Magical Song, Monster, Truth... Hey, I said this is is hard one!
Favorite Drama: My Girl and TQS.
Blurb: A blurb? Well then, since I'm procrastinating anyway: こんにゃにゃちは〜 Hello there, this is Eirwen, your resident Golden Age juniors fanatic and translator mostly responsible for 8 ji da J (though I do other projects as well). I actually entered the fandom through becoming a fan of Toma after watching Hana Kimi, and when I started to watch old shows he appeared in (8J, Ai Love Jr., MJ, Shokura, etc.), I fell hopelessly in love with the Golden Age juniors--mainly people who long since left the jimusho like Kohara Yuki (<3<3<3), though it also opened my eyes to the MAN of MAIN, and consequently Arashi. And what can I say? Aiba's baka experiments totally won me over to the point where Toma and Aiba now share the position of my JE ichibans (there are signs that it's now becoming a three-way tie with the addition of Kazama Shunsuke, but that's another story altogether). Anyway, よろしくね、みんな!

Ichiban: There we go again...the ichiban question...I always had problems to answer that question...and after years of thinking I can proudly say that I've found one: My ichiban is AiMoto! *nods* You know, I love the way Aiba smiles..but then comes Jun and looks at you with his piercing brown eyes...and then suddenly Aiba stars in a drama, which makes him wear a wonderful Bartender outfit and he shakes the shaker in such an arousing way...but then you see Jun shaking his hips in one of their concerts so that you brain becomes jelly and then Aiba...(I think you get my point^^)

Years as Arashian: Since 2003
Ichiban: Jun kun... but can't stop looking at Nino nowadays ♥...
Favorite pairing: Jun & Nino.
Fav song: Super Fresh, Yes-No, 5x10
Fav drama: Kimi wa Pet
Blurb: I seldom post about myself mostly because I don't know what to write...But just wanted to say I'm very happy being a member and enjoy working as a translator here. I'm a working-adult in RL and fly up & down between Singapore and Japan so I can't take up works at times but I try to whenever I can, cos it's really fun! Why I joined subbing team was that I came across inaccurately-translated videos of Arashi in the past which I was so frustrated that the real 'funniness' or 'sharpness' of them weren't properly translated. Like, 'Nooo! What Nino just said doesn't mean so!!' kind of thing, especially his cynical remarks and such... but now I'm pretty impressed with the Arashian-girls' Japanese knowledge!! Honto ni sugoi yo!!

There are 3 things that define a good violin player: Rhythm, Intonation, and Feel. If any of these 3 conditions are lacking, your play on the violin will suffer considerably. However, it is not an easy instrument to master. You won't become another classical violinist like Vanessa Mae or the new Mirad Nesbitt of Celtic Women in a month or two, not even a year or two. But that is no reason not to learn the violin. Violin for the beginner is always a challenge. Be assured however, with dedication, practice, tenacity and passion, you can be taking your bow as first chair of a symphony orchestra one day, if that is your dream. my link Your child will hopefully gain an appreciation for music, self-confidence, and improved academic functioning after taking violin lessons. You may find your child has a special talent in music, or perhaps a special love for the music. Either way, these beginning lessons will help your child discover more about the world and herself! Other musician's lives and careers can be great sources of inspiration. Some books to consider are The Great Violinists by Margaret Campbell, Fiddler to the World: The Inspiring Life of Itzhak Perlman by Carol H. Behrman, and The Compleat Violinist: Thoughts, Exercises, Reflections of an Itinerant Violinist by Yehudi Menuhin. If your violinist prefers movies, try Music of the Heart, about a violin teacher in a difficult East Harlem school. Meryl Streep learned to play the violin expressly for this movie. Unusual violin music Give your violinist music in a style they normally don't listen to and you could open up a whole new world for them. Because the violin is used in so many different styles of music, it's easy to find something even a long-time violist is unfamiliar with. Some styles to consider are Irish, bluegrass, klezmer, or Persian. Round out the package with a book about the style you chose or some sheet music in that style. 4. Charges for violin lessons Finally, find out the rates for music lessons in the violin school. What is the duration of each lesson? How frequently should your lessons be? Violin is one of the most beautiful instrument ever invented, so it naturally attracts many people who are keen to master it.
