Pronunciation of Tokyo Marui?

Just wondering how "Marui" is pronounced, I've heard people say it differently on youtube and was wondering what was the correct way to say it.

I'm totally ripping off someone who posted this before, but what the heck.


The proper pronunciation for Tokyo Marui is:

"Tee Em"

From the mouths of the Tokyo Marui convention representatives:
Toe-Key-Oh Maw-Roo-Ee (but if you want to say it 100%, add a slight tongue spasm onto Roo)
