Best Answer

anime- an-ih-may

manga: m-ahn-gah



I've heard of two ways for each:

manga might be maung-ga like the au in caught. or mang-ga like the ang in boomerang

anime might me ah-ni-may (same as it looks here.), or an-i-may, with the an like the an from and.

I guess that doesn't help much. /_\


From the Japanese spelling in hiragana



i'd say it's pronounced




I say a-neeem and mine-gah but I'm from NI so I probably pronounce it different lol

The Japanese pronunciation of it is, "mah-ung-ga". It's two syllables (the first is "mah+ung") but this describes how to pronounce the first syllable properly.
