Quote from Yavanna
I pronounce it like まんが bigrazz that is /ˈmɑŋgə/ in English;
in my native language it sounds the same as when pronounced in Japanese smile

I'll just steal those words. wink

I used to say 'manga'...until I heard my friends saying 'mahn-ga', I adopted that.

Personally, I think 'monga' sounds really weird...

I pronounce it mahn-juh, although I believe its pronounced mahn-guh. Then again, I've never heard anyone say the word besides me since I live in a tiny town full of hicks.

Ma-nn-ga. Almost the same as in Japanese (まんが). At least ever since I watch anime and have heard this word countless time. Before that I don't remember but probably with a french accent so
manga (reading man as ment in french (verb mentir), couldn't think of a word in english laugh and ga as in... ga, it's the same everywhere anyway right? smile )

The white way. I know the way it's 'supposed' to be said, but I'm already too used to the white way to be bothered changing now. Besides, it's not like it matters.

Simply call it Manga

and considering it's spelt 'MANGA' by every american publishing company that is it's CORRECT english saying wether you like it or not.

and if you insult anyone or say they're wrong just because the dont pronounce it like the japanese people do then your an idiot.

we don't walk around calling Japan it's proper named either which is 'Nihon/Nippon'
