How Do You Say Opal Koboi's Name?

Post by AFrules12 » Sun 18th Dec 2011

Koboi. I was just wondering how you say it. For example I say Ko - bi, but then I realized that it could also be Ko - boy. What way do you say it? Do you know which way is right or is there an other completely different way? Ideas please!

I always say KO-boy. I also sometimes say KO-Bee. I'm not sure which one is right

I think Yunny's right, but when I read her name I say:

Ka-Boo-ei

Kabooie... xD

Im using a Japanese pronunciation [ cuz its sounds like that and it reminds me of japanese technology]... so its not like ko-boy its Ko - bo -e, but this "o"s are soft and sharp [ no "h"]...

I simply say Opalina Koboi XD Cuz that's her name in Cro translation. :3 And I don't have any special way or saying that, I just say how it's written. Koboi.

Oh-pal Kow-boy.
Simple as that.

Opal Ko-bee. I always disliked the way EC pronounces it. The "boy" at the end is a bit offsetting in my opinion.
