Hm. I might have no idea what I'm talking about (total newbie here), but "na-ze-na-ra" would be the most logical pronounciation, wouldn't it?

It's pronounced "na-ze-na-ra," like Hiro said. Try saying it slowly, pronouncing each syllable, then say it faster.... I guess... if you think it sounds weird. =/

Um, if you'd like the pronounciation explained a little more Anglophone-style, then I supposed you could think of it something like

"nah zay nah rah."

Although, I'm thinking that the second syllable would probably be somewhat more curt than the rest (a bit shorter, maybe less emphasis). But after repeating the word out loud a couple times, I'm pretty sure that the "e" sound is pronounced.

Nah zay nah rah thats what i thought it would sound like at first but i just wanna know if you'd hear the e in nazenara lol.. guess not but with the y (zay) it sounds a little to high maybe it could be na zai narah oh well i'm just going to confuse us even more so i'lll shut up
