Aerith's True Murderer

It was Sephiroth with the katana in the Dining Room. BAM
So I just have to give a shoutout to a fresh, gaming celebrity on the interwebs - MatPat. This guy is known for creating the well-received series, Game Theory; a show analyzing mysteries and hypothesis' within the gaming world - a video game version of Mythbusters, if you will. One of his earlier videos looked at a moment that rocked the gaming world since 1997 - the murder of Aerith Gainsborough in Final Fantasy VII.

 MatPat takes a look at a different game in each video and much to my enjoyment, he deeply analyzed a scene (albeit a sad one) from a Final Fantasy game. All of us know that in Final Fantasy VII, Aerith (or Aeris, a mistranslation) was impaled by Sephiroth's incredibly long katana, but MatPat proposes another killer of the Ancient, which is how he ends all of his videos; that is, by proposing a theory.

 MatPat looks at the scene of Aerith's death very analytically; dissecting it in a true scholarly fashion. I suggest you watch the video to see how it plays out, because Mat's findings just might shock you.
