I'm sort of amused that there are 234 people who are interested in juuni kokki, but only 13 people, including me, who are actually interested in the correct spelling - juuni kokuki.

It's awkward to say, but the book bears me out. I called it kokki for years, but it's kokuki.

Hmm, interesting. The mis-pronunciation was widely disseminated by fansubbers -- I saw many files with that as the title.

They probably took a guess. And it was a reasonably good one - usually, it makes more sense to collapse the kuki at the end into kki, but in this case, that's not how it's pronounced.
