How do you pronounce Kanon? (the anime)

Unread post by AnimefanDK » January 17th, 2009, 10:11 pm

Hi there.
I'm a big fan of the anime kanon, got it on dvd and all. (insert hert emoticon here)

My bro and I ended up discussing a bit, how to pronounce the title?

Is it like sying kAnon with pressure on the A or kaNON with pressure on the NON part?

I always thought that kanon was just canon (like music term) except with a k, so I pronounce it the same way.

My belief was supported by the way they played Canon in D by Pachelbel OVER and OVER during the thing.

What? They played that Canon? That tempts me to see it.

As a side note, I loved the fragment of Mozart's Lacrymosa Requiem in FSN.

Oh yeah, the topic <_< I'd say it's Kanon
