Red Hawk Scanlations Closed
Red Hawk Scanlations and its subsidiary Red Hawk NEO has closed its doors. Their website currently reads the following

All things must come to an end, and this is no exception. After more than seven years of bringing you manga, the decision has been made to close Red Hawk's doors. You may have noticed that the amount of series we do has dropped significantly lately, and the reason is that most of us have just gotten too busy with real life to pick up anything new. After much consideration, we decided that with our key members having less and less time to focus on manga, the best course of action was for us all to stop while we were ahead instead of giving you something that we couldn't put our hearts into.
To all the readers and staff, thanks for following us all this time. You're the reason we do what we do.

P.S.: PRAISE THE SUN.

New Poll - Encouraging More Research
This week's poll is yet another one from icassop. It's kind of wordy, but I rather like the topic. I guess it depends a little on the type of series that you read, but even Naruto might encourage you to do some research on how actual ninjas fight or if running with your hands behind you makes you go faster.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Imperial Scans Closing
Imperial Scans is closing its doors after 4 years of scanlation. Their statement is as follows:


Hey folks,

It's a sad day for all of us at Imperial Scans today as we've decided to close down for good.
We've been struggling to maintain our efforts for a while now, and it hasn't been easy with everyone getting more and more responsibilities in real life as we grow older, getting more tied up in jobs, family situations, etc. We've reached a point where going on has really become a burden in the little spare time we got, and despite us all still enjoying what we do, it's now time to accept our limits.
We've asked our friends over at MangaStream if they're interested in continuing any of our current series. They're down with Tokyo Ghoul:re, but still have to look at staff availability for anything else.
We want to thank all of those who supported us over the years. All of you who simply appreciated the service we've been happily providing, you were the best fans. It's been one hell of a ride.

Imperial Scans Founders

P.S.: Fuck Touka

Not too many voters compared to our usual polls, but I'm surprised that many of you do read web comics. I guess it's a rising form of entertainment.

New Release Policy - Completed Novel Chapters Only
We have decided that for novel releases, we are only allowing full chapter releases to be listed. No more of this chapter 3e-f stuff. Only submit the release once the entire chapter 3 is completely translated. This mainly affects groups like Baka-Tsuki, NanoDesu, and the smaller a0132.

For releases that are currently in the middle of a full chapter, we will allow you to complete the chapter with partial release listings. For example, the series Meiyaku no Leviathan (Novel) currently is on vol 3, ch 3a. You can submit a release for 3b and 3c; but once you get to ch4, you can only submit the release entry once the entire chapter has been translated.

This policy only affects novels and not manga, manhua, or manhwa. Policy is effective immediately.
