Dramas/Movies based on Comics

A not nearly comprehensive list of Asian dramas and movies based on Asian comics [manga, manwha, manhua]. The list also includes some non-Asian movies that were based on manga as well as unofficial dramas and movies. Unofficial means that it didn’t actually have the stamp of approval from the mangaka to make it an official release or something like that.

See the original posts for more information: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7
