Welcome to our Q and A! This section of the website features questions asked by viewers at Quora and answered by Psycho Drama. The questions ranged from Japanese movies, filmmakers, dramas, and anime. The answers are reflective of this community's drive for actors and their acting styles. 

The question says it all. Here's more:

I would love to hear from both sides: the victim and the stalker. So I get a broader sense of the situation not as black and white as people and pop culture make it.



stalker[ staw-ker ] noun

1. a person who pursues game, prey, or a person stealthily.

2. a person who harasses another person, as a former lover, a famous person, etc., in an aggressive, often threatening and illegal manner: Hollywood stars often have security guards to keep dangerous stalkers at bay.

Stalking - Criminal activity consisting of the repeated following and harassing of another person. Stalking is a distinctive form of criminal activity composed of a series of actions that taken individually might constitute legal behavior. For example, sending flowers, writing love notes, and waiting for someone outside her place of work are actions that, on their own, are not criminal. When these actions are coupled with intent to instill fear or injury, however, they may constitute a pattern of behavior that is illegal. Though anti-stalking laws are gender neutral, most stalkers are men, and most victims are women.

Here's the question:

I wanted to answer this question because:

(1) There is a big difference between movies and drama and more so on the Japanese scene - I'd like to expound on this later;

(2) The question is quite relevant and timely since there is a new season, and J-Dorama just put the figure at 38 new Fall 2016 shows!

For the record in 2016, we have the following:

Winter 2016 - 27: Tokyo Sentimental, MARS, and Love That Makes You Cry;

Spring 2016 - 38: Dias Police, Juhan Shuttai!, Toto Nee-chan, Yutori Desu ga Nani ka and Hibana (Sparks);

Summer 2016 - 29: HOPE, Aogeba Totoshi, Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto, Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo, Suizokukan Girl and Koe Koi.

That makes 132 productions for 2016. 

Here's the question:

My Answer:

Unusual, even surprising question, yet I understand why someone would ask about it.

I think everyone who have read the manga or watched the anime and the live action movies (and recent drama) already knew that Light Yagami murdered L using the death note. With that singular act alone, I would say Light is evil, but he’s not pure evil (at least not yet). One needs to understand the radical change in his persona to make a proper judgment.

This is our second post for the new Q and A section featuring selected Quora questions that I have answered. I think of these issues as having relevance to what we discuss here, and it confirms my notion that there are people who are so interested in Japanese culture and their actors - notwithstanding the fact that some who have abandoned J-ent for the more popular Korean scene. 

The question is:

My Answer:

Yuto Nakajima is a potential dramatic actor. While he is doing variety shows just like fellow Johnny’s and Associate talents, he is also being groomed to become an actor just like his predecessors Ninomiya Kazunari, Toma Ikuta, Junichi Okada and a lot more.

His performance in Pink and Gray was his best acting yet.

There was an interesting question about Japanese actors and their acting style at Quora.

The question is:

My Answer:

There is a tendency for Japanese actors in TV series to “overact” because it's what the audience expect of them.
