For adaptation anime, do you prefer it to stick to the source

For adaptation anime, do you prefer it to stick to the source material word for word, panel by panel? Or do you think it's better that an anime takes some liberties in order to fit the narrative into the animated medium better (even if it means rearranging or cutting out material)?

Further more, what do you think when those liberties are taken a step further, in which we end up getting anime original content and characters? Pic definitely related but not meant to be the focus.

Man biribiri is so cute.

Whatever it takes so that the end product is equal to or better than the source.

Original arcs in an anime where there is enough episodes to adapt a canon arc, is unacceptable.
That's why I dropped Railgun S after the Sisters arc.

Jitsu wa watashi wa would have been a 1,000x better if it followed the manga closer; I'm still salty about this.

The big difference between a good adaptation and a bad one is as simple as direction. The director can make or break an adaptation. There's a lot of freedom to stick to the source material while still adding to it. You add to it through things like pacing, score, cinematography, etc. Animation gives you tools LN authors or mangakas don't have access to. They can't make wide panning shots. They can't play with colors (for the most part). They can't make a beautiful and fitting score. They have a hard time adding dramatic tension or making a scene fast paced when it needs to be.

The director has their own set of tools to add to the adaptation. THAT'S where a good adaptation is made.

Fuck, why did you remind me.

On the other hand, Hataraku Maou didn't follow the LN exactly and I think it was better for it.

SEASON 3 WHEN?

This is the perfect example of a director adding to an adaptation. This movie pretty much follows the novel line for line, but it uses its visual medium to add to each line. The introspection scenes are some of the best examples of internal conflict visualized, something the novel didn't have a chance to do.

Season 3 of what? Index or Railgun?

At this point I'd be fine with either. Both of those would cover some pretty good arcs from their respective series.

Some liberties, but keeping the undertones.
