That's not a compromise, That IS how it's pronounced... Unless you Are Japanese,
in which case you might have difficulty putting an R at the end of a word.

We don't argue about whether the gal from BGC is named Priss or Purissu do we?

The whole Sha thing is just fred Schodt being too faithful to a Japanese way of
saying Char. Frankly I think several of Schodt's spellings were a bit bizarre.
