I used to say it man ga but then got corrected by a friend a couple years back that it was mon ga.


This is how i say it now.

What the bloody hell is mon-gu and man-gu??





How does one get a gu sound from ga anyway?




As someone above said.

まんが

ma-n-ga.



So if I were to make it fancy like you would see in like a dictionary or something it would probably look like:

main-gah or mahn-gah

I also must repeat...

まんが

ma-n-ga.

When learning to read Japanese, this was the first thing I confirmed.

When we talk about pronounce // phoneme, the portuguese language is very close to the japanese one (it's almost the same, just a few are exception )
so, I say: Mangá ≡ /m/ /ã/ /g/ /á/ ≡ まん が (ma-n-ga) ≡ manga

It's mahn-gah.

All A's in the Japanese language are pronounced "ah".

If it was supposed to be pronounced main-gah, it would have been spelt Meinga, but it's not.
