However, I hear that the European short "a" sound is more like "ah" (long "a" is like "ay" or "ai," similar to American English)-- or at least it is in French. Any English speakers who aren't from America care to chime in?

I also speak French so it was natural for me to pronounce Anime - ah-knee-may, but in NYC we had this wonderful channel where they played animation 24/7 / they pronounced it a million times, would have been helpful to you!!!

i pronounce it as "ah-ni-meh", since my Japanese cousins (who intro'd Anime to me) say it that way.

I say it like "anna-may" because it's more natural to me.

Ah-Ne-May is the way I pronounce it but being on the internet I have heard different pronunciations. Who knows who's right.....

I used to pronounce it as "Ah-nim" because being English I thought the 'e' was silent.

But then I learned it is "Ah-nee-may"
