Manamune, which turns into Muramana, is more offensive while Archangel's Staff, which turns into Seraph's Embrace, is more defensive. It is a matter of either offense or defense.

The reason people build Manamune on Ryze is because of the Muramana. The muramana deals a percentage of his current Mana on attack and single target spells. All of Ryze's spells are single target spells, and they all scale off of his mana pool already. So, Muramana provides additional mana scaling damage on all his spells, and Ryze basically builds all mana anyways. This allows him to still do additional damage with his mana heavy tank builds which is more than the small bump to AP he gets from Archangel's/Seraph's since his AP scaling isn't that impressive.

Also keep in mind that Manamune gives more sustained DPS (just normal attacks can HURT with a fully built Ryze). And that manamune takes less mp to build up so...

I usually build both but Manamune first since the raw damage outplays any sort of attempted tanking as Ryze.
