If the manga ends one way, the anime should end the other way?

If a manga has a terrible down right horrid ending, should the anime have the same exact ending or another different ending? Depending on what your opinion of a terrible ending is though.

What do you think?

I see the two as being basically separate from each other so I don't see any reason why they should end the same, or even have the exact same story at all.

Depends if the anime was following the manga faithfully, if the anime wasn't following it then there is no reason for it to end the same.

Even if the anime follows the manga faithfully. Can you even imagine seeing the same terrible ending twice?

Should have the same ending but potentially touch up some of the bad parts.

That makes sense.

I'd prefer a faithful adaptation all the way through honestly. I may be narrow-minded, but I think the story should just be left up to the original author. So, maybe if the author came in and wrote a new ending for the anime, then I would be ok with it.

An anime is its own thing, source material be damned. I'd rather a Chunibyo than a Devil is a Part Timer ending.

I think that Manga adaptations into Anime should be as faithful to the source material *as Possible*, For example while the *Arpeggio of Blue Steel* adaptation was pretty much it's own thing, it still stayed true to the spirit of the manga, even though it really didn't follow the manga.

Both *Attack on Titan* and *High School of the Dead* pretty much followed the source material with some minor adjustments to make the story flow better (AoT), or to end on a more dramatic part of the story that involved all the main characters (HOTD) (If they had followed the manga the Anime would have ended on the "Sword and the Dead" episode, which would have been a little off, since only Takeshi and Saeko are featured in that story)

Deviation from the storyline is pretty common, especially when the manga outpaces the anime.

I like it when an anime takes a different route then the manga, it can sometimes ends up being really good (FMA 2003) or it can also end up being crap (akame ga kill)

When a adaptation is faithfull, Here's the question I ask myself: Why bothers if its gonna be the same as the source material? Why dont I go read the source material instead?

Differences between adaptation and Source material is in my opinion important to give relevance to both media. That's why im always open for adaptations that changes from the source material.
