No I thought it was pronounced that way too because that is the way I have been pronouncing it. I don't see the problem?I don't get it.
Am I one of the few that expected it to be pronounced that way?
What's wrong with that pronunciation? What did most people anticipate the pronunciation to be?
I've been doing the exact same thing. pronunciation and all. Van eat us doesnt sound right to me. Van-e-tas sounds better IMOI've been pronouncing poor Vanitas's name wrong for the past 2 years, good Lord. I've always pronounced it Van-e (short e, like in the word "net")-tas.
Not to me, but to most people.
And it isn't changing the name, just the pronunciation.
The whole point of it's name is that "X" represents the cross between light and darkness.
It being "Ex" in the NA version would make sense to a much more amount of people who play the game, who are mainly kids (who have a reason to not be smart enough to understand, ie. they're young), and those who grew up with the series.
Chi (uppercase Χ, lowercase χ; Greek: χῖ) is the 22nd letter of the Greek alphabet, pronounced as /ˈkaɪ/ in English. Its value in Ancient Greek was an aspirated velar stop /kʰ/ (in the Western Greek alphabet: /ks/).
Ancient Greek letter chi was pronounced as [kh] ([k] aspirated, nearly as in English cut) at least until the 2nd century BCE. Its pronunciation started shifting to fricative [x] (i.e., to its Modern Greek pronunciation, which is as in Gernam "Bach") in various places at different times.
Using unsubstantiated general terms like 'most people' is a sign of weakness in a debate.
It's changing the spelling and the pronunciation... that's changing the name, you know.
Okay! So you are going to call it the cross-blade, then?
Cause "X" doesn't necessarily mean [ɛks] you know.
What it sounds like you're saying is, North Americans aren't smart enough to learn one simple cool fact about greek letters?
Anyway, this is what wiki-
Cross-Blade is even worse than ExBlade.Hopefully, when they say the X-blade, they will say something like "Cross-blade." .
Nomura doesn't aim the series at any specifc age when coming up with the story (which is what the X-Blade falls under) so that is a poor reason.I clearly mentioned that its that age group (7 to 12 year olds) that the series is aimed at is who wont understand it.
