Anyway. here's how:

Take a quick look look at out rules:

RULES!!!Collapse )

Got all that?

Sign in with a livejournal account (no twitter, facebook, google+ etc). Then click join, and wait to be added.

*Important note: ao_no_michi is NOT an active subbing group at present, and while that might change in the future, we will not be releasing any new subs at this time.<---How cool is it that I get to edit this bit for now? YAY! thanks to the hard work and generosity of our members, ANM is active again (albeit quietly)

Ao no Michi is opening it’s doors again!

Membership is moderated, but you only need to click to join.

To access our previous releases more easily, there is a helpful list here: ANM Completed Project List
Old entries have been updated with new links where we could. (A massive thanks to Juu for giving me the ability to do so!) Although some files are still missing.

We also have a current back-up of this community hosted at DW, in order to help protect our work here, but subtitle indexes lead to the entries here on LJ.

New members!

....Well, only kind of. harunomasu has kindly given me control of the community here at Ao-no-Michi, and it is my intention to clean up the place a bit.

I have been out of fandom and LJ for quite some time, so please be patient with me while I get used to everything again. winkychan from over at arashiproject has, and will continue to be, a massive to help, having done a great deal of the work of compling a list of ANM subs with fresh links, which I will be working from to get this place working again.

Please note, however, that I am NOT a subber. ANM, as it is now, will not be creating new subs, but will be working to fix broken links and finding lost files, so the hard work of those who created them for this community in the past can be preserved and enjoyed all over again. Membership shall be moderated, as before, although I will probably make a new membership post shortly. In the meantime, if any current members are willing and able to help with this effort, please let me know!

ANM is opening new membership now. This is the new Introduction post if you want to join the community.

Hello and welcome to ANM (Ao no Michi/The Blue Road) community, where you can find subbed files for Arashi, a Japanese group under Johnny's & Associate company. We regularly sub Arashi ni Shiyagare and VS Arashi.

Joining the community is easy. No rules because I believe people understand the 'dos and don'ts' when joining a community. You only have to make an introduction post here, and then click the join button.

Wait for approval from our moderator, we will definitely add you into the community as long as you leave a comment here and click the join button.


If you've been rejected, please check if you've left an introduction comment in this post. Do the step again, and we'll approve your membership request. If you did leave a comment and we missed it, please pm me or just leave a new comment.

Please be aware that we're only accepting LIVEJOURNAL ccounts. No Facebook account please.

If you want to report the broken/dead links, please comment here. Some people still reported the broken/dead links to introduction post on the previous introduction post.

EDIT: Please don't forget to click join button after commenting, and don't try to click join button without commenting, abusing join button won't bring you anywhere if you don't post comment below. It's not that time consuming right to post one or two words?

Lastly, WELCOME! ^_^

EDIT 2 : Sorry, we're currently closing membership until I find a person to process the application. Thank you.
I, Juu (or better known as harunomasu@LJ) as ANM's creator and leader, officially step down from leader position of ANM as of today, 2 May 2012. The reason why I choose this is because I've left Arashi fandom quite a while back in February. I'm now engrossed with my new fandom, namely V6, and so I don't have time for Arashi anymore. With this, I think that it would be better also for the whole team if I step down and let the new leader to take my position and lead ANM.

With this post I also want to say my gratitude to all ANM subbing team members who had put up with me until we come this far. You guys are great, I'm sure in the future you will make ANM become a better community.
I also like to say my gratitude to all ANM members, old and new, for supporting ANM since the day I first created this community until today. Please keep on supporting ANM.
If you'd still like to see me around subbing things, though it will be mostly about V6, you can join v6yagers. It has open-membership so you only need to click join button to access the post in the community. It's still empty for now but first release is scheduled today so if you're interested with V6, go and join the community for more releases. I can promise you high quality of subbing like how I did with ANM.
I'll post the winner of fic contest in my next post and also reveals who write what. 

For always supporting me, I say "thank you".

We are all mourning right now, but that doesn't mean we couldn't have a little bit of happiness, right? So with that thought, I decide to release Arashi ni Shiyagare project earlier than I scheduled. I hope, we all from ANM team hope, that we can help to bring happiness to you all in this mourning day.

And let's pray together for the victims in Japan, or those who are suffering right now, so that they can stay strong and go through this disaster to live a better life.

This post will stay open. This is ANM's way to say our deepest condolence to the victims in Japan.

Arashi ni Shiyagare #014 [2010.08.07]
Aniki Guest: Takahashi Katsumi
MC: Oriental Radio
Encounter the unknown guest: Toda Natsuko

Special Guest: Angelina Jolie

It's time to have a little fun.
That's what leader is saying :)

Brought to you by ANM team


Remember to pray for the victims in Japan. Even if it's only a simple pray, we already help them in a way that we could never imagine :)

As you all already know, our lovely leader Ohno Satoshi will celebrate his birthday on November 26. That means, 13 days from now!

And since ANM is a little bit quite lately (everyone's busy with their own works and all), I decide to do this. Let's celebrate Ohno's birthday ANM way! So, let's play a little game shall we?

The game is really simple. I provide you a picture and you write a comment based on that picture. Any kind of comment will do.
Ohno: Not my face, please!!
Ohno: ... Nevermind.

You can make it in a humor way, angst, horror, thriller, anything! The 30 winners (yes, 30, because Ohno is celebrating his 30th birthday ^^) will get all our releases for Ohno's batch birthday early, on November 24. We don't know when we will post the birthday batch post, so this is your chance to watch it earlier than anyone! There will be HnA, Ohno's birthday project batch, and some Shiyagares. All those videos are waiting to be watched by YOU. So, what are you waiting for? *advertising* xD



The deadline for this game will be on November 21 (international time), and you only need to reply at here. AT THIS POST, nowhere else. No need to PM me or email me. Simply reply at here. The winners will be announced on November 22.

And it would be nice if you can write your birthday wishes for our lovely Leader. We will select the best birthday wishes and make it into a video.

I hope all ANM members could participate in this game! Let's make it fun, everyone!
