    Japanese words always have the same pronounciation no matter what.

    U is pronounced as it is in "put"

    Su is just like the English name "Sue"

    I is like the letter "E" in the English alphabet. (Or like feet, but said shorter than it is in "feet".)

    I believe it's your second guess.

    It's oo-soo-ee. The Japanese "u" NEVER makes the "yoo" sound.

    eww-sue-ee, like your second guess

    for it to be yoo-soo-ee it would be spelled Yusui.
