I am stuck with which medium to select for this product. This was the TV drama adaptation of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner, and the choice was either Video or Radio/Drama. I didn't feel Video was right, because Yellow Green was representative of Animation, the color we didn't used for a TV soundtrack. On the other hand, I didn't see what Radio/Drama was for, since I thought the "Drama" here was intended to for albums like this, and even though it also included TV drama, I didn't understand why it was bundled with Radio, to begin with.

We had some discussion in the past, and I've seen a couple more TV drama albums with Radio/Drama category added lately. While I suppose we should select no Category (aka Works) as other TV/Film soundtracks, I'm not certain what's right anymore...

I am agree the Radio/Drama category is a bit tricky.

Few years ago, i thought it was a good category for such kind of albums
S-nery, Sotsugyou M..
That were actually Drama diffused on Radio before being released on CD.

Maybe we should add a category for "TV" or "TV drama".. or even "Films" since we got a few of this last category. (PRINCE OF PERSIA anyone ?)

I thought it made sense to bundle 'radio' and 'drama' since alot of stand-alone dramas are released on CD only but some were in fact aired on radio/internet before they got a CD release.
However, I always thought this category did not include TV dramas which would need a category of their own. Well, until I saw the all the Ichirou Nitta submissions.

With the increasing amount of anime I would like to urge the addition of more than just one 'video' category, too. TV series (TV Anime/TV Animation), OVA (Original Video Animation) and Movie/Film for the anime part is needed since there are enough releases that have got the same name. And I'm not fond of the idea to put OVA in the title like it was done here.

what is supposed to be "Goods" ?
personally, I'd use "Other", I see "Goods" as goodies or... no I really don't see what is supposed to be "Goods" for products that have links with music
