I pronounced them bc well.. That's the title? If it wasn't meant to be pronounced, well I'll be damned I never look into that kind of stuff anyway.

Yes.

It's part of the word, so I pronounce it.

Unless I hear some (official) stating otherwise. (E.G A Interview with the Director, they pronounce it differently)

But I don't watch that kind of content, so... lol.

I just add txo extra X's to make it sound like it's a hentai. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
That 30+ year old boomer that teaches paleontology during a hentai review on MAL. *sips*
Anime was indeed a mistake, since we prefer 2D waifu's over 3D wamen.

Depends on the language.

In English, I don't pronounce the X in Hunter x Hunter, but I DO pronounce it in its Spanish title which is "Cazador X". Without the X, it would just be "Cazador", which sounds as odd and boring as just pronouncing "Hunter" in English.

The same applies for Samurai X... I do pronounce the X because without it it would just be Samurai.

Hunter x Hunter = “Hunter Hunter” (correct pronunciation on my part)
Kiss x sis = “Kisses” (I would incorrectly pronounce the “x” anyway, though)
High School DxD = ??? (no idea if the x is meant to be pronounced)
xxxHOLiC = ”Holic” (correct pronunciation on my part)

For example
Hunter x Hunter, Kiss x sis, High School DxD, etc. etc.

I usually don't but then people get confused on what I'm talking about lmao.


OP it really depends on the series. For Hunter x Hunter & High School DxD, I pronounce the 'x'.

For Kiss x Sis, I read it phonetically as "Kiss times Sis".

Idk why. lol just how it is for me.

Except for hunter x hunter, I pronounce everything by including the x.

Yea, same here. Pretty sure the x is silent in DxD too.
