This is nowhere near as difficult as it sounds.
Here are the facts. Manic mode has no health bar and no red health pick ups. It still gives you tons of green extra life pick ups though, and we can take advantage of this through the age old process of boss milking.
In other words we will be destroying their missiles to farm extra life pick ups.
Step 1 get to the first boss, I got there with ten lives, it doesn't matter though. The boss has a very easy pattern, you want to ONLY fire when he releases missiles, you will get an extra life every twenty seconds or so. You will be damaging the boss slowly so you can't do this forever. I left this fight with over 35 lives.
Step 2 do the same to the second level boss, you won't get as great an opportunity this time but I still came out with 58 lives.
Step 3 rush through the third stage and don't bother with the boss this time
Step 4 Milking the fourth stage boss forever. During his first pattern you can park your ship a little over half way up the right most edge of the screen and he will steam missiles directly in front of you infinitely. I quit at 101 and coasted through the rest of the game. But you can hold triple digits worth at least so stop when you think you have enough.
Step 5 go get your 1cc

I wanted to post my video clip of the fourth boss but for some reason I can't. Hopefully this helps.
