I actually don't mind when an adaptation deviates from the source material since I figure it keeps things interesting for fans, but it only really works well when the writers can capture what made the original great in the first place.
Agreed. Haruhi 2006 is a good example of how an animation studio taking some liberties in adapting the source material can actually make the anime even better sometimes.

But what we're seeing here in Ore no Imouto is such a huge character-derailing change that even I think it's horrible.
