with the recent availability of Eureka Seven on CR.

can someone explain how "U" is pronounced like "L" ?

is it that the japanese language has U=L, as far as pronunciation or what?
it's the one thing that annoys me to no end about this show... even the english dubbed version has it.

on a side note: adding -o to the end of various consonants ('t' and 'd' most often) doesn't bother me.

Reading the Katakana title, it's pronounced E-U-RE-KA. I think people normally read Eureka as like, 'Yu-ree-ka' but in here it's by letters. Listening to the pronunciation in the show, it sounds like 'Yure-ka'. No 'L' anywhere so I dunno what you mean. Also, They don't have just a 'T' or 'D' letter so they use 'To' and 'Do' I guess that's why they pronounce it with an 'o' at the end.

Born and raised in New England and I pronounce it Eur-ek-a...that's just how it sounded when I saw it on TV back when the dub was first on Toonami way back when in the US, when I wasn't into watching anime online a whole lot.
