Badly. But it's cool.
Not even that much usually. FullMetal Alchemist is a good example of big changes, but it was great so there's no problem. A lot of others stay very close to the manga.
FMA is the greatest thing ever! But yeah their main problems is they stick to close to the manga and they catch up and are force to have filler, look at Ruroni Kenshin, the cartoon caught up to the manga and they added a bunch of fillers to give the manga a chance to catch up and they were cancelled cause those fillers suck.
I think FMA took the right direction, use all that you have and continue in your own direction. One of the thing I love about anime (I assume its true about manga) is that there's usually an ending that their heading towards. There is an ultimate end, not like in america where a series is milked until its cancelled due to poor quality. I like it better when the writers choose to end it cause they can write a better overall story with a great closure to it. I would like more cartoons to take that idea.
