I think what you mean is actually called a monologue, bro

>> No.5066666

dont bother. native english speakers cant pronounce japanese. it sounds even worse than the other way around.

>> No.5066670

you should be embarrassed for talking about touhou at all

>> No.5066675

These kind of things are best enjoyed in isolation, you know?

>> No.5066678

No. Get the fuck out.

>> No.5066679

None of the characters have particularly difficult names to pronounce.
Or are you talking about characters like cirno and tewi whose japanese pronunciations are generally different from ours?

>> No.5066700

Break them down into their syllables and learn the proper hiragana pronunciations...
Mo-Mi-Ji, Yo-u-mu, Ko-ga-sa, etc.

The best way to learn is to look at a hiragana pronunciation chart. 99% of the time, the hiragana WILL NOT change pronunciation no matter what sort of order you put them in. There are some exceptions with the "n" sound, etc. but you don't really need to bother with that.

YU= "you"
YU= "you"
KO= "co" as in "cola"

and so forth. Any you're particularly stuck on?

Don't forget は

>> No.5066711

You pronounce Touhou character names as they are spelled using Japanese characters. The only name you necessarily should have trouble with it Tewi; "wi" is an archaic character but the "w" sound is virtually silent anyway so "Tei" is acceptable.

Oh, you Americans..

>>5066710

I said there were some exceptions, and that has more to do with when it gets used as a particle as opposed to being in somone's name.

>> No.5066883

Just watch them Touhou M-1's or something OP.

Or just anything else that is voiced and has Touhous.

>> No.5067388

is gensokyo pronounced like "JENSK-yo"?

>> No.5067396

Isn't there an audio pronunciation guide on the wiki?

>> No.5067422

Learn any language other than english, then use that pronunciation and it'll sound just right.

English pronunciation is fucking retarded.

>> No.5067440

http://touhou.wikia.com/

Pronounces are available on the characters' pages.
