I took a few years of a Japanese class; still learning as well. I used to never pronounce titles of anime/manga correctly. Now it just comes naturally.

I am a little bothered by it, not going to lie, but a lot of the time, I tell myself not to get upset over it. Because obviously they aren't familiar with Japanese, so it's not really their fault. I'm not going to be so pretentious of that myself, because my ethnicity isn't Japanese, nor am I a fluent in that language.

Sometimes I hear people pronounce the first a in "manga" like the a in "main" and it gets on my nerves, but not that much.
