Epic question answered: How to pronounce Ryu's name


#1

Well, I got bored and decided to get all of this settled once and for all.
Offline for now due to homophobic and childish behaviour from SRK members. :dp:, :hp:


#2

Mystery solved. Now…about YOUR name…


#3

My name is Hadou Ken (???), this is also something that I might bring up.

Hadou Ken means Surge Fist/Wave Motion Fist, NOT Fireball. Hopefully this will be brought up by someone else though.


#4

Ah, interesting. There goes my “Ken dub” I was thinking about…

“Fireball! Fireball!”
“Uppercut!”
“Kick that makes me dizzy!”

:cool:

you are a gay virgin


#6

Not that it concerns you but no, I am not. :wink:


#7

Whats that coming over the hill is it a monster? is it a monster???

But like my post was that necessary to find out how his name was pronounced?


#8

youre wrong anyway because the japanese sound that transliterates to the letter ‘r’ doesnt really sound like an english ‘r’ but more a combination of ‘d’ ‘l’ and ‘r’, and ‘yu’ is more a short ‘yuh’ and less a ‘yoo’

see i actually know how to pronounce it and yet i dont give a care if people pronounce it wrong because im not a pathetic piece of shit


#9

This is… OP you just:


#10

a 3-minute romp with the first troll you could get to talk to you in anime club doesnt count


#11

:rofl:


#12

Speaking of trolls…^


#13

NO! you’re wrong! it’s clearly pronounced RE-YOU (not REEEEEE-YOU though)

what makes you think it’s a japanese name and is pronounced as such!? pfft. scrub!


#14

Way to ruin my day weeaboo :frowning:


#15

I’ve always said “Rye-yoo”.

I’m going to *keep *saying it that way…


#16

well prepare to be mocked, scrub! or does another 3-min video have to be made?


#17

Video’s down.

Was there ever a question though? I mean, they DO say it in EX.


#18

Correct, and that is the right way to say it!


#19

I say Rye-You because It sounds better… ^^’


#20

When I was little I pronounced it “rye-you” (just like most people, haha), but now that I actually understand how Japanese is pronounced I say it the correct way.

The kinda interesting thing about Ryu’s name is that it’s really said in one breath, like it only has a single syllable.
