The Arashi Dead Links Project

[sticky post]Project FAQ

  • Most of the older subbed videos are gone. There are a lot of fans out there who would be willing to help out, but all of us would like to ask for the fansubbers' approval if we can reupload their files.

  • We are now in the midst of collating a list of fansubbers and trying to find ways of contacting them. I have no idea how long this step would take, but we are doing our best.

  • The next step would depend on whether or not we get replies from the fansubbers.

  • We are in the process of reuploading dvampyrlestat (Jeffer), tsuribaka's and some of arashi_yuuki's files as well. (Please see the update posts for more information. [Edit 12.25.13] For Arashi_Yuuki, we only have permission to reupload files that either Jeffer had worked on or had released.) Once the links are complete, they will be sent to Jeffer, and Jeffer will edit the original entries of the subbed files. Once Jeffer has edited the original posts, I will create a masterpost for all said subbed files. None of Jeffer, Tsuribaka, and Arashi_Yuuki's files will be in arashiproject.

  • This community will contain all of taijiprojectsub's (Becky) subbed files. Per Becky's request, posts containing her files are locked to members only. Please join arashiproject to access these files. Please remember not to share Becky's files outside the community, but please feel free to direct everyone who wants to download the files to this community. Everyone's welcome!

  • This community will contain ao_no_michi's subbed files. All files will be on locked posts that only members have access to. Again, please remember not to share these files outside this community, but please feel free to redirect everyone who wants to download them here.

  • This community will contain all subbed files that techni_teddy and nyanchan have collaborated on. Again, please remember not to share these files outside this community, but please feel free to redirect everyone who wants to download them here.

  • Just click on JOIN, and wait to be accepted in the community!

To the fansubbers:

  • We understand if you don't want your links posted outside your community. What we can suggest is that we can help you reupload the files, and you can be the one to edit the original journal entry of the subbed file. However, if you don't have time to maintain/update your community, I am more than willing to help you maintain the community (in accepting new members and updating old posts with new links). This way, your links will still remain inside your community.

If you want to help reupload, please click on the links below for more details:If you want to help, just join this community and comment away!

Feel free to PM me - I will answer everything that I can.

Help me welcome Dekka!
Hey everyone!

dekkawai will be helping me moderate and maintain the community. Hopefully with her on board this community will be more updated! :) Please help me give her a warm welcome, everyone!

Help Needed.
Hey folks, if you're willing to help me out in maintaining this community, please send me an email at Thank you@

Oh - it's THAT mod post.
Hi folks.

I know I've been AWOL, but real life has been pretty hectic. I do go online a few times a week to approve members, but I do admit that I haven't had the chance to fix some posts for a few months now. I am truly apologetic - I feel bad, I really do. However, I won't deny that some comments and messages (that are full of nothing but demands) I've gotten over the past few weeks have made me feel worse, but I'm choosing to ignore those. After all, an overwhelming majority of you guys have supported this project since day 1, and I've made a decision to focus on the good rather than the bad.

So no need to worry - I'm still here (I will always be!). I've just been pretty busy. In line with this, I need some help. I need a co-moderator - one who can focus on rebuilding AnM's and nyanchan's + techni_teddy's subbed files, most especially. If you feel like you're up for the job, please let me know. Just comment away.

Oh, and an update - join AST if you haven't yet. My first mod post would be up in a few. ;)

Eight Update
Hi everyone, and happy new year!!!

First up, I'd like to apologize on being so slow with the updating. The past few days have been soooo busy, and I've barely had enough time to sift through my messages and post links on the masterposts. Also, it has come to my attention that I have erroneously pasted some links here and there, and I'm so sorry for that! I supposed that's all on me for working on this community while I'm incredibly tired and sleepy, huh? ;) Anyway, I'll work on correcting all mistakes and posting all the new links ASAP (more like after I hit 'publish' on this post). Lastly, I know I was supposed to have send out the spreadsheet containing all the new links of Jeffer, Tsuribaka, and some of Arashi_Yuuki's files to Jeffer by now, but I apparently I work slower than I initially thought. (And excel confuses me like you won't believe.) Not to worry as it's in progress, but the spreadsheet will take more time for me to finish. Basically, this means that it will take more time before you guys can download Jeffer, Tsuribaka and some of Arashi_Yuuki's files, so again sorry, but I do hope that everyone is enjoying all of Becky's wonderful subs!

And after all my apologies, I have awesome news! I was able to reach Corrine (corlee1289), maintainer of ao_no_michi, and upon telling her of our project, she's all up for it! Basically, I will be creating a masterpost with a list of ao-no-michi's files here in arashiproject, and same goes - everyone who can help reupload the files are more than welcome to help out.

Again, happy new year, and thank you for making this project a success! :)

Seventh Update (Merry Christmas!)
First of all, thank you so much to everyone who helped reupload the (many!) files we needed - I'm almost done posting all the links on their respective posts, and it's amazing how much we've accomplished in such a short time!

There are still a lot of links for me to sift through in my inbox but I'm pretty sure that most of Becky's files have been reupped at this point, so congratulations, everyone! Pat yourselves in the back - you all deserve it! To the fans who will be watching the videos for the first time (and to everyone else redownloading after your respective hard drives kaboomed), enjoy our boys at their finest!

So anyway, I just wanted to be the first to wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas. I'll be off the radar for around 3 days to celebrate with my family (and to sleeeeeeep), but rest assured that I'll get everything sorted out before the end of the year. (So if your reupped links hasn't been posted yet, don't fret! If I haven't replied to your PMs yet, please give me more time.) I promise that before 2014 rolls around, I will have posted all links of Becky's files that I have with me, and I will have sent out a spreadsheet to Jeffer which contains working links of all of her/Tsuribaka's/Arashi_Yuuki's subbed files. Afterwards, we just have to wait for her to edit the original entries, and we should be good to go.

So what's next for arashiproject after I send out the spreadsheet to Jeffer, you may ask. Honestly, I'm still a bit stunned that this project has been so successful. I never promised anyone anything when I started this project, but allow me to say that I've done what I wanted to do from the very beginning - to help fans, both new and old. We've managed to reupload A LOT of files, and the response over the past week has just been overwhelming. We've all come together to help each other out, and that's such an amazing feat, isn't it? Anyway, I promise to keep this page active, and to keep all links of Becky's files working. Next year, I'll be putting up a masterpost for broken links (so that they can be fixed and reupped asap), just to assure that Becky's files never disappear.

Also, if you guys have any suggestions to make this project even more successful, sound off below. If you want me to contact other fansubbers, just comment, and I'll work on it next year. Heck, if you guys want to list down all broken files and fansubbing communities that have been AWOL, please feel free to do so, and I'll see what I can do. Nothing wrong with sending out emails asking permission, right? ;)

Anyway, I need your opinions - I was able to reach nyanchan a few months back, and she gave me her permission to reupload the files she worked on in the past. The thing is, nyanchan is primarily a translator, and I wasn't able to reach the other subbers she worked with. So... what should I do?

Again, guys, Merry Christmas, and do enjoy the holidays! :)

Jeffer, Tsuribaka and Arashi_Yuuki's Files
NOTE: The new links will NOT be posted in this community. Once every file has been reuploaded, I will forward all links to Jeffer (dvampyrlestat) and she will edit the original entries that announced the release of the files. I will create a masterpost once everything has been forwarded to Jeffer, and once all original entries have been edited.

If you want to help reupload files, please comment below, and then just PM me the links. I will edit this post accordingly to indicate the progress of this project.

Sixth Update
Hi folks - I just got the most amazing email awhile ago... Becky (taijiprojectsub) just gave me her go signal to start organizing reuploading ALL her subbed files!!!!

(Becky, if you happen to read this, thank you again!)

Per Becky's request, all posts containing her subbed files will be locked to members only, so please make sure to join arashiproject as soon as you can. Please just remember the usual rules - please don't sell the subs, don't upload to streaming sites, and please make sure that all links would remain inside this community. Please feel free to direct everyone who want to download the files to this community - everyone's welcome!

To those who want to help reupload, please refer to the masterposts below (all are locked, but you just have to join the community and you should be good to go!)

D no Arashi -
G no Arashi -
Mago Mago Arashi and Arashi no Shukudai-kun -

Pretty great Christmas gift, huh? Please let me know if you can help!

Fifth Update
I've gotten a few messages containing reups over the last couple of weeks so thank you so much for your support everyone. I'll work on compiling everything next week (hello, Christmas break!), and look out for an update then!

Fourth Update
Hi folks,

My apologies for disappearing for a month. I've been ridiculously busy with RL and work so I haven't had the time to update this comm.

Anyway, to those still interested in helping out (names of files needed to be uploaded can be found here -, just leave a comment with the filename and then just go ahead and upload. Afterwards, please PM the DL link to me, and once everything's done (or maybe once we reach the halfway mark) I'll collate all the new links and send them to Jeffer, and Jeffer will update the original posts. Jeffer also told me that she'll make sure to credit the uploaders.

To be clear - no links outside Jeffer's personal journal, arashi_yuuki, and tsuribaka.

I'll make sure to reply to all comments in the previous update posts in around two weeks. Thanks for being so patient!
