I think that would be relevant, since a lot of manga do get adapted into dramas (especially with shoujo, I've noticed). Maybe it could just be incorporated into the existing section, so an "Anime/Drama Start/End chapter" box? Just so it doesn't take up more space on the series info page...

Intead of just "Drama" why not say Live Action. There are comedies that have been made into live action shows and movies as well.

I find MU very much lurked than baka so a drama section would be a great idea and also, sometimes, the information sites for some drama fail to mention whether or which manga/manhwa etc the drama might be based even if it is...this section would be a great way of finding out..live-action usually includes or imdicates movies, I think..

Eh? I had assumed that in the "anime start/end" field you could just add dramas and stuff anyway. Although, I don't care about that junk, so I don't ever pay it much mind. I really pretty much never look at it, so I don't care either way.
However, if this suggestion is implemented, I'd rather it not take up too much extra space, so I agree with what lys said ("Maybe it could just be incorporated into the existing section, so an "Anime/Drama Start/End chapter" box? Just so it doesn't take up more space on the series info page...").

I like this idea. I was just thinking of it, myself.

I think it'd be great if this came about, I often like to read and then watch a series. And it would be easier to find if there was a one-stop.

No, not whatever, the distinction is very important. Live Action would be the appropriate term here since it covers everything: foreign TV adaptations, movies, doramas, Tokusatsu, etc.

Why would you wish that? I always thought that the "Anime Start/End Chapter" was really useless since it makes the unfounded assumption that all anime made is a faithful adaptation of the manga. Even when that's the case, the "Anime Start/End Chapter" doesn't give you the option to explain when the anime has skipped entire volumes of content, or the occasions when the anime is faithful plot-wise but inexplicably removes characters that are important in the manga so it's impossible to begin reading from where the anime left off.
If the "Anime Start/End Chapter" is already broken when referring to anime, in live action is even worse. Just think about it, what are you gonna put in the Dragon ball "Live action Start/End Chapter" area? or Fist of the north star? or Negima?

To be honest with you, instead of adding something to the already broken "Anime Start/End Chapter", I wish it was replaced with something like "Anime/Live action/novel/videogame relationship" or something, where you can explain what relationship the anime/live action/novel/videogame has with the manga, if it's a faithful adaptation, you can put it like in the present "Anime Start/End Chapter", if it's a different continuity, prequel, sequel, side story or the like, you can also put it there. That to me would be a far better option.
