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.

Good thing they closed down because of inactivity and not because someone got arrested.

Maybe this contributed to them closing down:

Update: The Association of Copyright for Computer Software reported on Thursday that the two Chinese men from Asaka, Saitama took a chapter of The Seven Deadly Sins and posted it on the website Red Hawk on October 5.

Troll as always, PROzess.

Anyway... who is going to pick up Silver Spoon when it comes back from hiatus (or is it back already)?! All of their other series I cared about already had... competitors (where by competitors I sometimes mean Crunchroll because Fuuka)

PSA- if your group have members in japan, i recommend you close shop.

it is not worth it.

Hah. With TPP, it might soon be dangerous in many other countries.

It seems that the main problem here is the "before its release" thing (meaning, they got the chapter from a pre-release).
