There are some anime that are better than the manga but there are a couple that should go back the manga like dot hack// Legend of the Twilight, fullmetal Alchemist, and Friuts Basket [spoiler] they made Akito a boy when in the manga it a girl [/spoiler]

In general, I prefer manga over anime. Since most anime derives from a manga series first, it can be extremely dissapointing when a scene in the manga you love does not show up in the anime. However, sometimes anime does do a better twist than manga.
There are some differences in the FMA series that I don't like. Such as: spoiler ahead!!
[spoiler]Envy's true form. In the anime he looks like Ed and Honenheim (very cool) but in the manga he's some ugly, freakish dog-like creature. I liked it better in the anime in that case.[/spoiler]
Thank you, Ms. Arakawa, for sharing this wonderful, enriching story that has affected so many of us!

That's like the equivilent to saying that movies should follow books to the 't'. It doesn't bother me all that much to have anime that's not exactly the same as the manga. As long as the majority of the storyline is there, then who cares if there's a few changes? I mean look at the anime that do closely follow manga, InuYasha, Naruto, Bleach etc.... there's like a bajillion episodes to watch hahaha....
I love the differences between the FMA manga and anime. I love to read manga, but if the anime and manga for FMA were really alike (like other anime and manga series are), I would have no manga to read because I've already seen the whole anime series. It's interesting to see your favorite characters get into situations in the manga that are different than the anime. The different characters in the FMA are also cool, like Ling Yao(manga only), Frank Archer(anime only... I think), etc.

yeah when i started reading FMA, I had seen the anime. While reading i was held in suspense the whole time. "OMG whats going to happen next?!!" I think if they had the anime and the manga they would probably get more people to watch. I kinda curious to find out how much they cut out from One Piece

Naruto, yes and no. Yes, because Kakashi-Gaiden sounds cool and I think that it should've been made into an anime. No, because an example would be the fight between Tenten and Temari. It didn't show the fight in the manga.

I agree with some of the above posts, if the manga is exactly like the anime, then it would not be fun, as long as it creates about the same plot point to the story that it would be good

how do I put it ?
no, because anime should have some originality .. to emphasize it, anime is not too far from manga but they it will be nice if they have differences as well so that it'll be much fun and interesting ... just like FMA !
also, manga sometimes cut off the excitement in story and anime should fill that missing part !

I have mixed feelings about this. I think people want to see the same content as in the manga, but presented in a very effective way visually. It upsets people when a scene is totally different from the manga, however. What I think is best is that everything's the same (except for directing and presentation) in the anime from the manga, and that there should be a side-series anime for silly other original anime idea stuff that could be done. That way, the filler and the actual story don't get mixed up and fans can be more satisfied.

Uh, I dunno really.
If an anime is going to be made based off of the manga series, it should be very similar to the manga. However, sometimes it can be boring to see things word for word. But, I don't like it when major events or fight scenes are left out.
