At about 48 seconds he clearly says "Aeris" a couple times. And in the very beginning of the video.

If they didn't have a "th" equivalent in their language, they wouldn't have made her name Aerith. It was purely to appeal to western audiences who say "Earth" in the English language.

Japanese people call her Aeris.

That's completely nonsensical. You really didn't think that through.
So they shouldn't name characters in Final Fantasy whatever they want? Are they not allowed to use non-Japanese names in their games? You mean they shouldn't be allowed to name the main character Cloud or Squall because they can't say or write those names properly in their native tongue? They shouldn't be allowed name the villain Sephiroth just because they don't have "th" in their language? You think naming a villain "Sephiroth" is pandering to western audiences? How does that make sense when the origins behind the word is middle Eastern (Hebrew), not "western".
I think Square can do what they want to do. They named their final fantasy characters what they wanted. Your claim that they're trying to appeal to western audiences makes zero sense considering there were FF games that were not released in the west, with characters such as Luneth. Yes they named her Luneth, and the game wasn't even released in the West. But by all means, keep going on about how SE shouldnt name their characters whatever they want.

I'm hearing a quite U and she even says it with a U in CC but either way in English it's Aerith.

What's nonsensical? The fact that Japanese people call her Aeris?

I'm just pointing it out.

Everyone is saying Japanese people call her Aerisu and stuff, but I'm hearing them call her "Aeris" in videos. So which is right, which is wrong?

And why are people so quick to shoot down Aeris? Japanese people themselves call her that.

Your claim that they use non-Japanese names for their characters to pander to western audiences, and your claim that they should not be doing this because they don't have a language that can write it how they intended. That's what is nonsensical. They can name their characters whatever they want. And you can't stop them. They decided to name their characters names like Luneth, Aerith, Celes, and Sephiroth. Just because their own alphabet is too limited to be able to write it exactly that way doesn't mean that's not their names.

In the video I linked to, did the guy say Aeris, Aerith, or Aerisu?

I heard Aerisu with an almost silent U. Check out the video I posted to hear the official English and Japanese pronunciation.

If you met a foreign girl from Iceland named Guðrún, and you found yourself not able to pronounce her name properly, and your alphabet doesn't contain the letter ð, that doesn't matter, her name is still Guðrún. You might pronounce it as Goodrun, and that's fine. Expected. The name is foreign to you. Its OK. But her name is still Guðrún. They're also pronouncing Cloud's name as "Kuraudo", does that mean his name is Kuraudo?
Do you understand why your posts are not logical now?
