Over the past few years, rumours have circulated in Japan about the existence of arctic Humanoid Life-Forms inhabiting the icy waters of the Antarctic. Reportedly observed on multiple occasions by crew members of government-operated "whale research" ships, these so-called "Ningen (人間, "Ningen", meaning "human") are said to be completely white in colour with an estimated length of 20 to 30 meters. Eyewitnesses describe them having a human-like shape, often with legs, arms, and even five-fingered hands. Sometimes they are described as having fins or a large mermaid-like tail instead of legs, or even tentacles. The only visible facial features are the eyes and mouth. According to one account, crew members on deck observed what they initially thought was a foreign submarine in the distance. When they approached, however, it became clear from the irregular shape of the thing that it was not man-made--it was alive. The creature quickly disappeared underwater.
The popular thread attracted the attention of many readers from outside the 2channel Community and the November 2007 issue of MU magazine, a Japanese publication devoted to the study of paranormal phenomena, which featured an article about the "Antarctic Humans". The article speculated on the possibility of unidentified creatures inhabiting the southern seas, and it included a Google Earth screenshot showing what looks like a Ningen in the South Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Namibia. To date, no solid evidence has been presented to confirm the existence of the Ningen. The government is believed to have kept detailed records of the sightings, but they have released no information to the public and have reportedly instructed eyewitnesses to remain silent.
Ningen sightings seem to occur most frequently at night, making them all the more difficult to photograph. In still images, the sea cryptids mostly just look like ice, though it is said that their smooth, human-like skin can be seen when the photographs are enlarged. In any case, no convincing photographs have been made public either because they do not exist or because, as some argue, the government does not want to invite undue scrutiny and tarnish the scientific reputation of the whale research program.
Misidentified whales, sharks, and squids.
A new species of giant manta ray
An aquatic sloth, perhaps an evolutionary descendant of Thalassocnus.
A misidentified Iceberg
An undiscovered subspecies of beluga
An evolutionary relative of humans. However, this is unlikely due to their size. Although, their size could've been changed through evolution.
A species of aquatic animal, likely descendant from evolved giant carnivorus seals or killer whales, that is evolved into humanoid shape due to convergent evolution.
The Ningen: The Southern Ocean Contains an unusual collection of aquatic creatures that inhabit both on under ice and below this and certainly in the water are another variety of beings, many of them hidden from the Creatures that are a misinterpretation. The ningen remained hidden for many years until first specimens were found swimming outside the continent. The first sightings occurred in New Zealand being a huge corpse that had come partially intact. Hence, he had to stay many years before a live specimen was found. From what could be seen the corpse is that it was a huge mammal, about 7 meters long, and with an estimated nearly 60 tons weight. The first and most prominent protruding was their appearance, shape not stand out with any known mammal, the descriptions given were: “A huge being with two giant arms that ended with huge and long claws which in the correct position, they should serve as fins; the lower body was long and more compact, with two legs like fins; his head was round and flat, with a separate medium mouth and binoculars eyes, two nostrils on top; with a length of about 15 meters and weighing 70 tons estimated” Weeks after taking the necessary samples, they began to make genetic relationships to get some idea of what kind of creature is. After a while, his closest relative was indentured as... a sloth Yes, a sloth. At this point people began to wonder: What kind of joke is this? Of course, this was not a joke, that was real and much more it was when they began to find living specimens. Many of them were around Antarctica, around the Ross Sea, living alone swimming at depths of 50 to 70 meters. They were recorded as predators and who used to hunt medium-sized animals, such as seals, penguins and even young whales. He did not know much more about them, what their lives were, how they were born or how long they could live. It is not yet known how it evolved, there isn’t any fossil or material evidence that would give us an answer, but is speculated that they may be a descendant of a South American group of giant aquatic sloths as Thalassocnus which were successful to adapt a full aquatic lifestyle, and some of this this species reach Antarctica during the end of the Pliocene. Is also not yet known how they avoided the huge marine predators from the times before the ice age, however, it is believed that should have taken advantage of their sudden extinction in the Pleistocene. They survive until the mankind ages, but for Shame, they don’t survive us.Unfortunately with global warming, the conditions surrounding territories began to change dramatically in a point that the specimens found soon die and in a decade, and then, after 30 years, the species was declared extinct. The ningen, went from being one or several cryptids to be the example of the lawlessness of humanity during the contemporary rea before the great collapse, it will be a recordatory of no matter how much we know about this world, there are hidden things still remain even in front of us...
