The Ningen is a creature of Japanese origin. The word “Ningen” translates to “human”, regarding the humanlike appearance of the creature itself.
The creature is said to be nocturnal, most active at night, and have eyes and mouth but no other distinguishable facial features. Supposedly the creature ranges from 60-90 feet in length, has a blubbery body like a whale, is albino , and has a very humanlike form. Some eyewitnesses claim that the creature is actually relative in size to that of a human, possesses a mermaid-like tail, or has hand-like appendages. Others believe they have leg-like appendages which allow them to also walk on land, but these claims have never been proven.
The creature was first discovered by a Japanese Research Vessel in the 1990’s. At first the crew believed that they had spotted a foreign submarine but soon realized that it was actually a living being.
It is rumored that the crew aboard the ship were able to do extensive research and even shoot some photos and videos of the creature, however this information has never been released to the public. It is said that the research on the creature was never released due to government interference. These days it is rumored that the Japanese Government even monitors internet posts and removes anything related to the Ningen, strengthening the claim that the crews research may have been kept secret by the government. A more likely reason is that the crew, being professional researchers, did not want to make their research public and be mocked by the scientific community for being associated with a paranormal creature. But this has also never been proven.
The Ningen first rose to popularity in 2007 after an article about the creature was released in a Japanese Magazine. The article also featured screenshots from Google Maps of a supposed Ningen swimming off the coast of Namibia. After the article’s release many witnesses came forward saying that they too had seen such a creature. Soon enough the internet was exploding with supposed sightings of the creature. Many believe that a lot of these photo and video sightings are too good to be true and that most, if not all of them, are just hoaxes.
On a more serious note, if the Ningen actually exists and is not just legend, then we will always have very limited information on the creature, as we do now. This is due the creatures very remote location in the Arctic. The trip alone would be too costly, not to mention the amount of equipment and researches needed for such a task. Because of this we may never know if the Ningen is just a legend or an undiscovered species. Until we find out, stay curious my friends!👽
