Joker: So you will marry me? / ジョーカー: 結婚していただけますね?
Sakura: Yes … to our future. / サクラ: はい…\nよろしくお願いいたします。

Translation end!

Translation notes: よろしくお願いします (yoroshiku onegaishimasu) can mean so many different things, like “nice to meet you,” or “I hope this will be a good business transaction” or “take care of my little sister.” It’s a lot like similar Japanese phrases, such as 気をつけて (ki wo tsukete) or だから (dakara). It generally means well wishes to some future endeavor in social interactions. Since the context of this situation is them walking that dangerous path together, I translated it here as “to our future,” as if they were doing that thing where you clink wine glasses together and say something, whatever that’s called. In any event, if you have any suggestions for improving that or any other part of the dialogue, let me know down in the comments below.
