"I FOUND... MY ONE PIECE!" should be in there

Edit: unless One Piece, the treasure, turns out to be the worst thing lmao (or your friends along the way, in this case, a literal friendzone)

A single ring will cost 108,000 yen (US$1,017), while a set costs 216,000 yen (US$2,034).


What a generous multi-buy discount.

Who's going to spend a $1000 on wedding rings?

I think most people, judging from a brief look at wedding ring prices at a few jewelry stores. And that's for only one ring.

I’m coming back from a wedding as I read this. Good thing the only anime I think the bride and groom are vaguely familiar with is Sailor Moon.

Two non-obvious factors:
+ japanese text requires a larger minimum size, acct complexity of kanji and related reasons. There are fewer glyphs so the space taken up is about the same (although I've been told that english is one of the more compact languages written) but the nature of a ring is that it's kinda one-dimensional.

+ roman-letter stamping is cheaper and simpler than any other script because of higher demand for the tools.

@MarshalBanana

Are you sure you haven't confused wedding rings with the diamond engagement ring?

Well, for me, it's not about the price, but the sentimental value. I have my No Game No Life replica ring ready and waiting for that special someone. (Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop)
