One scene of Yuri on Ice (YoI) displays a register receipt from a jewelry store. For less than a second, possibly even as short as a few frames, most of the receipt is visible, and it is clear Yuri is about to purchase a Gold Wedding Ring. Immediately the bulk of the receipt becomes masked by Yuri's credit card. At the beginning of time code 13:26 of episode 10 a lucky freeze-frame can capture:
After that instant, the only significant receipt info which remains unmasked is the price, 768.94 €.
Is there a verifiable reason the exact nature of this purchase is almost hidden from the viewer?
In the English subtitles, Yuri refers to it as simply a "luck charm". There is a Tumblr post which explains that the term in Japanese is "omamori" and has a deeper meaning than a non-Japanese speaker would associate with "luck charm". (I have no direct knowledge that this post is accurate, but it feels right.) So those in Japan would apparently get much more out of this scene, even if they could not read the receipt.
Within hours (probably minutes) of episode 10 airing, there were people posting the information on this receipt. It is likely that, even though the details would slip by the vast majority of viewers, any internet-savvy YoI fan would know what the receipt said. So the scene seems to be intentionally hiding information, but with the knowledge that it will be revealed by the fans. Does this confuse anyone else?
Also, can anyone read the first word on the line with "Gold Wedding Ring"? I think it starts with an "F" but I cannot make it out, even in a sharpened version of the image. (The video was viewed, and image captured, at 1080p resolution, expanded to full screen on my 1920x1080 display.)
