That was actually more of a /m:::/, tho.  Writing uumu is about as close
as you can get to that in Japanese orthography.  I suppose theoretically
would could write nnnmu, but they don't for whatever reason.

Anyhoo, I love that series.  :-)  And on a oblang note, the song's title
is actually Ramba Lambada, the Ramba using a punnish reading of the name
Ranma (the second kanji, which is read _ma_ in that name, can also be
read _ba_) :-)
