English pronunciation is usually too arbitrary (in my opinion), but I’ll go for the second one. In Spanish it would sound like quitsuné, I think

I'm not sure kitsune ever got a "real" anglicized pronunciation, since it's just Japanese for a word we already have, and using the term in English pretty much exclusively relates to the Japanese mythological creature

I've spent some time learning Japanese so it's #2 for me, not sure if this helps your poll or not >_>
