Japanese words are almost exclusively made of constanant-vowel syllables. So it's pronounced ma-na-mu-ne

It is based off the Japanese pronounciation. Mu is pronounced Moo.

It's a play on words of the sword "Masamune"

It's pronounced Ma-na-mu-nay

Assuming Japanese reference from Masamune, it would be Mah-nah-moo-nay.

This was my first thought when I heard about the item and I still pronounce it as so. The "mana-immune" thing is also plausible,

edit: I'm seeing a lot of people claiming that the masamune reference is correct, wanna give us a source as to why you all think this is correct?

In Japan, baseball (which is very popular) is pronounced "base-u-ball-u" as that's more akin to something in their language, and easier for them to say. Say it how it feels comfortable.
