I pronounce it the same way as the Japanese do. I hate it when people say mainega. It burns my ears. It just sounds like they're saying mango without the o but replace it with an a. D:

It's pronounced the same way as in Japanese, in my native language, but...

The funny part is that someone who isn't familiar with the term (which is a lot of people here) would think you're talking about someone who is really freaking drunk, or something. Because the words are really similar. xDD

Quote from shaggievara
I never talk about manga, so it is rarely in my conversation ever, but mentally, I say it like "mango" with an a. laugh

And I don't give a flying shit who criticizes me for it. none


Same here.
Mango with an a.
Nobody's criticized me yet, since I don't say manga, I say "japanese comics"
when I actually talk about it.


Do people really say "monga"?

lol, thats very similar to how I think about in my head. Personally Ive only said it once out loud and it sounded kinda weird. oh well... I tend to keep my manga reading hobby to myself so really dont talk to anyone about it, thats why its so weird when I say it out load. laugh

Do you really speak it "monga"? o_o Because I always spoke like "manga", and my Japanese teacher, who is Japanese herself speaks "manga" as well.
I'm not native English speaker, so I may be misunderstanding it...

So I've not voted yet, as I don't really know how you speak.

Anyway, how do you speak anime? I speak it like "ah ~ nee ~ meh", but some friends of mine say "ah ~ nee ~ mee".
