Artist junny (known for doing prologue/epilogue illustrations for Tekken 5 and 6, and doing a whole lot of hentai work) has made a few official manga for SC5. Although there's not actually any hentai in these, boo!

It looks like it's supposed to fill in the story between the events of SC4 and SC5, and it was released a few weeks ago. Based on the few amazon reviews, these manga are either really good or really bad.

Edit: Considering the size of these, I guess they're actually books with lots of text and occasional illustrations than something like comic books. I suppose that means it's either really REALLY good or really REALLY bad.

Using google translate on the amazon reviews makes it sound like this is a retelling of the entire storyline from Soul Edge up until the start of SC5. It also sounds like this is a much darker tone than what is expected of the series. I didn't see many character names mentioned, so maybe it only covers the main characters in the series.

^ you are right, just did some search on the title, it says "novel" instead of "comic"
still, maybe it will actually shed some light into how everything happened right before SC5.

On the one hand, I want the soul series to be successful, so the brute force method of doing that would at first appear to be to help them maximize their profits, yes. On the other hand, I think SC5 could have been a lot better than it is in many different ways, and, in essence, rewarding them for a mediocre game by buying up whatever merchandise they offer to us is just enabling them to make SC6 just like SC5, which I don't want.

So what's the correct answer? Who knows.
