Actually, in my opinion, it would probably work fairly well if they based the anime off of the Tsukihime manga. Its plot is a mix of the game and ("nonexistent") anime plots, with more focus on/development of the secondary characters (i.e. Ciel, Akiha, Hisui, Kohaku) than in the ("nonexistent") anime; I also like how it included bits of stuff that weren't in the actual Tsukihime game, but came from Kagetsu Tohya (like Len on the windowsill in the you-know-which scene in Shiki's room, that one-eyed-guy-whose-name-I-forget; stuff like that). However, doing that might make the anime a bit long....

The F/sn anime was good; not great, but good. Higurashi was great (and I eagerly anticipate the Rei OVA[s] later this year as well as the anime version of Umineko no Naku Koro ni which will eventually be made). As well, the Utawarerumono anime was awesome.
It just can't compare. It's like, you ever seen a movie based off a book? It's just not the same, that's basically what we have here.
You are both correct and incorrect. While it is true that they won't be the same, you can still judge the new work on how good it is. For instance: the LOTR movies, while different from the books, are still quite well done, in my opinion. In fact, the LOTR trilogy is probably my favorite set of fantasy movies, ranking right up there with the Star Wars movies being my favorite science fiction movies.
Another way to look at it is like this: to judge how "good" a movie or anime is compared to the original work, consider not the strict details but rather whether the movie/anime kept the spirit of the work.
