neither

It's MAHN-GUH

How could you not know this? This term pops up in anime all the fucking time and it's always pronounced that way.
>>
Mahn-guh


I had a teacher in social sciences back in high school who would pronounce it "Mayn-zha". I never bothered correcting her, but god, I struggled to keep a straight face whenever she said it.

I don't know, man.

I think it's just because she knew it was a foreign word, and she figured that if she slipped enough weird inflections here in there into it, that she'd get it right.
I don't think she ever pronounced it the same twice in a row, now that I think about it.

It was pretty damn funny.

Who the hell pronounces it MUN-ga? MAN-ga or MAYn-ga is the only way I've heard it pronounced
>>
I used to pronounce it mahnga but since I felt like a tool I started calling it mainga. If I'm reading Japanese I'll still pronounce it correctly in my head though.
