Now don't get your panties in a bunch. ^_^ I have always used the Char spelling, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I just agreed that most Characters pronounce it as Shaa.

As was pointed out though, Amuro definately puts an R on it when he says "Char me!"

It is definately not pronounced Char as in char broiled though! ^_^
