We launched a series called Generation NEXT, about up and coming Japanese actresses who have been on the spotlight lately. This 5-part series features Mayu Matsuoka, Tao Tsuchiya and Suzu Hirose [Part 1], Hana Sugisaki [Part 2], Mitsuki Takahata [Part 3] and the trio of Fumika Shimizu, Mizuki Yamamoto and Yuina Kuroshima [Part 4]. The final part will feature another list of 4 or even 5 young talents and the update of the Top 15 Most Promising Japanese Actresses hitlist.

A separate series on the actors is also in the works. Expect some discussions on Kento Yamazaki, Taiga, Shuhei Nomura and Taishi Nakagawa.

Plus, a final part on #DeadFishEyes series, which is quite popular since it talks about Yamapi & Sota Fukushi.

Welcome to PsychoDrama! This site contains movie and drama reviews, casting news, trailers, movie posters and information about the latest Japanese productions, including profiles of established and aspiring young actors and actresses. We also feature the hitlist - rankings of the hottest Japanese talents and actors' bias articles - where we discuss prominent talents including Satoshi Tsumabuki, Ryuhei Matsuda, Eita, Hikari Mitsushima, Mao Inoue, Yu Aoi, Shota Sometani, Yuya Yagira, Fumi Nikaido, Sosuke Ikematsu, Masaki Suda, Ryunosuke Kamiki, Ai Hashimoto, Mayu Matsuoka and many others. Join in our discussion and let us know what you think! Started in March 2012, you can find out more about us here. By the way, we don't do gossip - we don't know who is dating who nor feature anyone who went to this or that motel. We could not care less. While we may appear to be movies fans, we feature more than news, but also opinion. We are also not a database since we feature selectively.

The mark of a good actor is his ability to transform into a different character. Takayuki Yamada is such an actor. In Ushijima, the Loan Shark, Yamada is given a role that would allow him to further prove his mettle as one of Japan's most talented actors. In the film, he plays a ruthless loan shark who encounters the character played by Kento Hayashi. As Jun, Hayashi decided to "stiff" Ushijima and the conflict begins.

Watch and see how Yamada looks like in this movie!
