This manga has been licensed here and the first volume is coming out next month. I'm thinking of buying it, since I loved the anime series. There are no reviews on this, so I wanted to ask, is it worth it?

I heard some manga (such as Kill la Kill) are basically frame-to-page translations of the anime, is this the same?

I bought all of the volumes in German from TOKYOPOP just because I am a fan of the show and wanted to own a copy. It has a nice matte cover with glossy art and text and beautiful bonus art that cover two pages. My German isn't fluent yet so I haven't had the time to really sit down and read it but by looking trough the pages I can tell it looks very similar to the anime.

I actually bought it! Read through it and it was very similar to the anime but it had been quite some time since I last watched it so it wasn't jarring. I felt like there were some extra dialogue, which compensated for some moments and twists which didn't work as well on paper compared to the anime. Only major change I noticed is that the confession scene at the end does not take place, the characters confess individually on different scenes which most of the time came off nowhere and had little to no impact.

The cover and bonus art were beatiful though! It might have been worth buying it just for the art!
