Fuji has some guts thinking I'll buy their film over Kodak's just to save a few pennies.

So the yen depreciated by about 10%. Well the price of ACROS is up almost 33%. For ACROS prices to return to where they were a year ago it would take currency manipulation on a scale that would have American nativists screaming bloody murder.
The Obama administration is already making public complaints to Japan about the fall of the Yen. The 10% depreciation you speak of has happened in just the last month. Recall that the yen used to be at 70 to the dollar last year or so. The fall has been far, far more than 10%.
