    yeah, i pretty much agree that foreign words are difficult to pronounce; however, we should always strive to pronounce them correctly, but only if they haven’t entered the English lexicon or are proper nouns.

    example: ninja and samurai are Japanese words with Japanese pronunciations, but they’ve both entered the American English lexicon and have, in effect, become English words with English pronunciations. Proper nouns like Naruto or Akira or any other Japanese title of an anime, manga, movie, etc., is still a Japanese word that will never enter the English lexicon because of the fact that they are proper nouns. it’s like names. i don’t care what country another person is from, they better pronounce my name correctly, and i will do the same for them.
