Loved the anime? Don't read it!

Hated the anime? Don't read it!

If you go by volumes it's like Bad > Horrible > Worst thing ever

Also, to add to what he said, the third volume of the series had to be the absolute single worst volume of any manga I ever read.

Horrible, horrible. Just absolutely horrible.

First, I'd like to state that Rahxephon was one of the first anime I've ever seen, and even now, still one of my favorite.
So, of course, when the manga was published in my country, I bought the first volume.
It was a huge mistake. The manga is nothing like the anime. From a poetic and beautiful story, they managed to bring out a manga where the female characters are only here for fan service (OMG, my poor Reika), and the plot is reduced to that of areally bad mecha manga.
Even the art is of no match compared to the anime.
Out of hope, or foolishness, I bought volume 2 a few weeks later. It was, if possible even worse.
Generally, I'm not a big fan of mangas derivated from an anime, but this was totally on another level. I've never felt so disappointed reading a manga.

Honestly, it was the very first (and as of now, the last) time I considered throwing a book away.
Yes, it's THAT bad.
