Why do I have the feeling that the Strawhats releasing those children from their "quarantine" will turn out to be a huge mistake?
Why would you quarantine children on a dangerous, abandoned island such as Punk Hazard? That is a big indication that the kids aren't safe. While they are out of danger in their shelter, the suspicious location tells us they're in greater potential danger for staying.
Interesting thought. As far as we know, Oda can pretty much come up with the most unexpected conclusion for this arc.
Also, I forgot to note, that not only giant children are there. This makes me wonder if they are really the kids of giants, or just like that because of experiments. I'll assume it's the latter since I find it more exciting, but who knows, really~
Not sure if this has been posted yet or not, but what the hell is wrong with Sanji's hand in the middle left panel?!?! http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/658/11
Yeah, that hand is creepy. The fingers are all messed up.

and has anyone noticed brook's cup with his jolly roger on?!?!? <3
His former Jolly Roger. Everybody has a new one now.
Also, I would like to know if anybody else thinks this arc is going to be a short one (two volumes max, 18-20 chapters). I know there are plenty of mysteries going around here, but the story seems to be advancing pretty fast (the Strawhats are pretty much done with the fire side) so I wouldn't be surprised if (mostly) everything gets wrapped up in ten chapters from now on.
Lack of possible long flashbacks and few antagonists (the weird slime, Smoker and, possibly, the Harpy) don't help me believe otherwise.

Exactly. It's probably a setup arc for Wano Country or Big Mom's Arc (mostly the former).
If Akainu going all out in a battle does this to an island.Luffy vs Akainu is gonna be insane
It could be possible that the sickness they are trying to cure is the same one that got to Rogers and to the Captain of Brook's crew. The mysterious disease.
The Rumbar Pirates did have a contagious disease. Captian Yorki and about half the crew caught this plauge. Considering how contagious it was to take out nearly half of the Rumbar Pirates, it is not the same as the Roger Pirates, the crew did not get sick, only Gol D Roger contracted any illness, so what ever Roger got, it was not contagious.
It was not the same illness that caused hardship for the two crews.
From what we can guess so far, Roger and Rumble pirates had different problems.
I thought it'd be weird if the WG was setting up a new experimental prison(one like Impel Down/Enies Lobby) on Punk Hazard. What I don't quite understand is if "Leggy" is the lower half of the Samurai head...How is it talking?

After reading a couple of posts, I realized that the straw hats taking unknown "kids" with them might not be the wisest idea underseveral circumstances; Ill try to expand on those a little.
1. It could well be that the "kids" are "ill" but not from a terminal disease or a flue, but a "need to control disease". What would happen if the kids are in "quarantine" (As someone said before) because they're actually dangerous to leave outside unnattended? Don't get me wrong, the feeling and vibe that the kids gave is one of, "we're innocents and healthy" but that doesn't have to mean that they're always like that. I admit this is an unlikely posibility from all viewpoints but it will certainly be a twist if it is true.
2. Different sizes; not different species. I'm also getting the feeling that those giant kids may be humans "under treatment" instead of giants. IF they are kept in "quarantine" because the drug is on the development phase then if it's not treated it might make them huge or tiny .Ok I get an Alice in wonderland mushroom feeling there but seeing where this is going and what we've seen why not have a gigantic kid destroy an island that doesn't have a magnetic pull and which is half frozen half molten?
"In fantasy writting Logic is more of a guideline then a set in stone rule. Use it when you need it - ignore it when you don't.
Although odly enough FOX News also follows this ideal too O.o." (Thanks to Cymeleon)
For now I take 'illness' as the official reason given to make the children comply with being examined. I would rather have these kids truly be of various races including giants they are of all shapes & sizes(hey the kiddies left that giant baby behind in the confusion),some tanner than others some with slanted eyes and you can even spot what looks like a fishman on p7 panel 1 and some really weird little faces on the 5th panel which I'm wondering whether they are even human(seriously what is the thing next to the blond giant. Seeing there is Master and all the freak show walking around wouldn't be surprised if it's not human,or not anymore) or if it's just lazy art.What interests me more is the frozen people.
