it means "thank you", but with heavy asian accent (japanese).
"TH-" from "thank" is pronounced like S. and "yu" from "you". hence the word, "SankYU"

Japanese Slang for Thank You in english. It translates to 39 or to be more exact 3 9, which when said in Japanese are San and Kyu. It is also used in txt messages to short Thank You as on a Japanese Cell, numbers are much easier than Kanji.

A Japanese phrase that shows up alot in animes and the subs say it means "thank you" but I don't understand how that works because it can't be defined anywhere else. Can also be replaced with "arigatou".
Kyousuke said "Sankyu" when Misaki gave him the sweater.
