Today was a bare minimum kind of day (except for the multiple random tangents I went on looking up words and things here? hey that’s reading too I guess, chaos mode)
Not much to say really, I played a super tiny bit of 999 and that’s really all. On to tomorrow!
Accidental deep dive
Soooo I tried reading more about it and it’s really unclear honestly? Most stuff in Japanese seems to refer to the card as ウォーティー, but while also talking about how it’s “The Watery” which is adjacent at best.
I found a couple things that at least mentioned both ウォーティ and ウォータリー but only super briefly. The first was this クロウカード(CCさくら) - アニヲタWiki(仮) - atwiki（アットウィキ） which says ファイヤリー can be pronounced ファイアリー to be more accurate, and also that the same thing happens with ウォーティ and it can also be read ウォータリー.
I also found カードキャプターさくら | Anipedia | Fandom which says that ウォータリー was originally the correct pronunciation, so honestly jury’s still out. My best guess is the pronunciation varies a bit with different people interpreting the names (classic katakana), especially since they’re being associated with kanji.
But yes to answer your question it should be like a quick sort of う お sound, basically approximating a w.
