@EricPalicki I do a lot of anime and manga shows, and I've found there exists a subculture (what I call "elitists") who are very specific on how words should be pronounced. Usually, they pronounce them wrong. (Instead of "anime" being short for "animation," for example, they call it "on-e-may" and get very upset if you don't pronounce the "an" like "on." It's not called "on-i-mation," so mostly I just chuckle to myself whenever they try to correct me.)
Anime isn't short for animation -- it's a Japanese word that means "animation"
