>>
Ah - soo - KAH
>>
aus - kuh

Why do they pronounce it like "Oscar" in the subs and dubs? Is this a japanese thing?
>>
>>152294453

Because he's wrong.
>>
>>152294453
>pronounce
>in the subs
>>
>>152294517
Japanese audio, english subtitles. You know what I mean.
>>
аа-сука
>>
It's pronounced あーすーか
>>
kimochi warui
>>
ah-sue-cuh
>>
gahr-bihj
>>
>>152294343
Use your brain. They say it in the series many times.
>>
>>152294430
>>152294573
I really need to learn moon runes, I hate not being able to read 90% of the Japanese language exclusive doujins.
>>
>>152294343
Shit
>>
>>152294573
While it's great that you learned hiragana anon, that's wrong. Putting ー after a syllabe means the last vowel sound is extended which isn't the case for Asuka, you're basically saying it's pronounced Aasuuka
>>
>>152294758
How can something be so cute be shit?
>>
>>152294404
>>
>>152294453
Cause the /su/ sound in japanese is usually pronounced as an /s/ which is why desu is written like that but usually pronounced dess, same thing with suki, etc.
>>
>>152294343
啊スcar
>>
Similar to Oscar, but different at the end.
>>
So basically the "U" in "Asuka" is silent?
>>
It's pronounced as best girl
B-E-S-T G-E-A-R-L, it's easy
>>
cum-dumps-ter
>>
>>152295218

More like the su trails off. You don't realize it but in the transition between s and ka, you make a natural 'u' sound.
>>
ah-soo-ka
Don't be a weeb, anon. Pronounce it the American way.
>>
People making these threads clearly don't even watch the shows.
>>152295445
>pronouncing Japanese names in burger
>>
>>152295741
I did watch the anime and the EoE movie, I have the directors cut to prove it.

I just wanted to know if I was doing it right pronouncing it AS-KAH..
>>
>>152294343

Stop watching dubs and hear how its pronounced in the original Japanese.
>>
>>152296096
I never watched the dub.
>>
>>152296143

Then you should know how its pronounced. There's literally a scene where they keep saying her name over and over again.
>>
What the fuck is wrong with americans? Just listen to it in show and repeat. It's that simple
>>
>>152294453
the "U" in a Japanese syllable can be a Latin-style "oo" or an English-style U "uh", and the Japanese tend to syncopate (leave out) their "uh" phonemes
>>
>>152294343
Us-Kah. ""U" in "su" is almost silent.

ASSか

Like Celia Cruz says asucar.
AH SUH CAH
>>
>>152294453
What >>152296925
said. Most of the time, the -u is dropped in from -u sounds in Japanese, except for t sounds where sometimes the o is dropped. That's why many people say "dess" instead of "desu," that's probably the easiest example to catch.
