There are accents in Japanese? I always thought that it was a rather
monotone language. But, then again, I was wrong about the word "gundam"
being pronounced "GOON-uh-DAH'm." If you say that fast enough, it does
sound like "Gun-dam."

I don't think so - your original pronounciation sounds right - just listen
to how they pronounce it in the subbed/raw tapes/discs. The accent is on
the first syllable not the second.
