I just noticed that Grunhilde in Mouretsu Pirates pronounces a word differently than I expected.
Being princesses, both Grunhilde and Gruier use watakushi. Usually that word is pronounced wah-tahk-shee. Grunhilde pronounces it wah-tah-koosh.
Or at least in one case she does, ep 15 06:20. She's using it with -tachi because she's talking about both her and Gruier. So it's wah-tah-koosh-tah-chee. Maybe that's the reason why; wah-tahk-shee-tah-chee seems like it's more difficult to pronounce.
Or is it a deliberate affectation by the voice actress? Or is it an attempt to make watakushi not sound like watashi?
