    I pronounced it like the french word:

    a (like english determinant, a tool, a fish, whatever) + ré (like french accented É) + ka

    eurêka : it's an interjection, from a Greek word meaning "great! I found it!"

    I honestly say it differently every time I have to say it.
    I used to say el-rekka but now I tend to say Er-ukka, but sometimes I say it some other way.

    Good anime by the way, one of the first I ever watched.

    how do you pronounce "el" ? there's no L letter in eureka.

    eurêka /ø.ʁɛ.ka/ (that's the French pronunciation)
    Eureka /jʊˈriːkə/ (this one is the english one, so it's Yooreaka)
    from the verb εὑρίσκω, heurískô (« finding »).

    I wanted to follow this anime, but discovered it was the second season :(
    I watched episode 0 which is a recap of season1, but I didn't understand a thing.

    For those wondering, the word itself is pronounced You-reek-uh, bt the show follows the different pronunciation of Yur-eek-uh, as showcased here by Tom.

    No idea how you could possibly come up with ellrekka or even errukka. Have you never seen this show?

    How did you get El-rekka?

    Anyway, I pronounce it Your-e-ka.
