Over the past few years, rumors have circulated in Japan about the existence of gigantic 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" (lit. "humans") are said to be completely white in color with an estimated length of 20 to 30 meters.Eyewitnesses describe them as 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. 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 under water.

     Good find. I have not heard of this one. Yet another batch of fun for all of us, LOL. Hmmm, the" pics" make me think it could be a type of whale but with Whaling history being so long and large I would find it hard to believe that one was not killed. Again, hmmmm. Thanks Still.

Too much Saki being consumed by the crew could account for these misidentifications.

Giant underwater whale people... sounds like a good story, but not much more.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

The creature in the first image is quite convincing. I hate it when "artist impressions" are included. These are less than worthless and detract from the true facts of evidence. They're aren't humanoid at all and wouldn't walk upright on land by the look of them. Interesting topic though

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Ive seen posts of yours where you specify the mythic creature and its behavior with nothing more then a blurry video or photo to go by, sometimes no photo at all, just an ambiguous description.  How exactly is that following the "true facts"?

That 2nd picture kinda looks like those "walkers" out there in California that someone caught on their home surveillance camera.

So THAT'S what they're going to be "researching" now that they seem to finally be bowing to international pressure to stop whaling scientific research of whales.

I think Diechecker is on the right path.

What would be the point of fingers underwater? Would not at least webbing be appropriate?

Interesting tale, it sure would be neat if something like this was to show up.

If its a sea creature why would it need legs, what would it accomplish on land ?

That second artist's impression is quite bizarre - imagine seeing that come out of the water and waddle towards you..
