Dope week: Surprise, surprise . . .
One Piece is not exactly the type of Manga where you expect to find recreational drug use, but there you have it, in this scene from OP 514:
Read right to left. Not my scans.
This happens immediately after the big battle on Shaboady Archipelago, which resulted in the Straw-Hat crew getting scattered. Luffy, in particular, after being teleported away by Bartholomew Kuma, winds up on an island he doesn't recognize, where our scene opens:
On second thought, that could almost be an anti-drug PSA, given how it all turned out.
Also I've no idea what's up with that one girl's dialogue. I can only infer that she has some verbal tic that makes more sense in the original japanese.
Also, if I could get a modly opinion on something - what exactly is the policy on posting manga? Is it one third of the single chapters, or one third of a volume? This post is legal either way, but I was just thinking - there's a case to be made in favor of applying the one third rule to volumes, since most manga haven't ever been published in English as single issues. Also, some manga have chapters of wildly varying length - Hellsing, for instance, has chapters eight pages long, and chapters thirty-four pages long - making it difficult, if not impossible, to post anything cohesive from the shorter chapters while staying under one third of them.
Just food for thought. Sorry if that issue has been already settled, somewhere where I missed it.
