I was wondering, do you think anime is better when it is based on a source material (such as a light novel or manga) or when it has an original story (as was the case with Escaflowne) ?
Also, how do you feel about the rising popularity of titles based on moe-heavy visual novels, such as Kanon, Air and Clannad ?
