comment Pronunciation of the Japanese ん and nasalized vowels
It's not clear what you mean by "a double n sound from English". The only double /n/ sound I can think of off the top of my head is in pen knife. @Kyle But [ŋ] isn't a phoneme in Japanese, so you should write it in square brackets. Anyway, I think there's a lot of information someone could put in a competing answer, so I hope the OP unchecks this one and waits to see if anyone else would like to contribute.

comment What is the difference between spellings しまう、仕舞う、終う、了う?
The subsidiary verb ~てしまう is at least fifty times more common than the independent verb しまう. Subsidiary verbs (補助動詞) are usually written in kana.

@Eric I think the subs fans made for that show have lots of errors, actually.
