    Nothing to worry about.

    They’re just smaller versions of the creature from Cloverfield.

    hehe. Yes nature would allow such natural selection features to persist. Who needs fins when you got legs. f*** you dolpheeen~ f*** you whale~

    The first video clip has all the touches of an amateur 3D animation. The fish don’t swim correctly and the camera zoom on the creature is too abrupt to be either mechanically or physically possible.

    Still, it might make for a nice plush toy. Ningen Thingen.

    At 20-30 METERS in length, they aren’t SMALLER versions…

    WOW! Just like in Kurt Vonnegut’s Galapagos. Good read.

    With the quantity of alcohol that gets drunk in Antarctica, I must say that I shouldn’t be surprised, except that I’ve never heard of this manufactured ‘myth’ while down there.

    If you continue your foolish activities, I support the sinking of your vessels.

    Am I the only one who can see the traces of clone tool?

      Well the link does call the posted image an “artists rendering,” a more interesting question would be; if they really exist why is it only lonely/bored whale researchers seem to find them?

      As for the grainy video in the link, maybe its real, maybe it isn’t; too hard to tell. If these ningen are real, some fishers need to get busy fishing and capture one. Seriously if they can catch dolphins, they can catch these things.

      On an somewhat related note: why is it people always apply some sort of intelligence to “humanoid” cryptids as a way of explaining why no one has ever seen/caught them?

      @ Dead Robot
      Mark forgot to include the caption from the link: “Artist’s rendition of a Ningen standing upright”

      Is it just me, or do most of the other photos remind you of Beluga Whales: http://bit.ly/8660iD

    It’s been shooped (I can tell by the whoops).

    Humans are very good at picking out other human-ish patterns.

    Maybe it was a Ningen that Arthur Gordon Pym saw in the southern seas.
    I’m a little freaked out.

    Looks like a white Kingdok from Bone.

    I totally believe this.

    ‘scientific research’ = whalers… who just yesterday rammed a Sea Shepherd vessel, splitting it in half.

    as for the ningen – Lovecraft’s Old Ones perhaps? I guess the shoggoth didn’t kill all of them down at the Mountains of Madness…

    My favourite bit though is the paraphrased quote that ‘official’ photographs have not been released for fear of tarnishing the ‘scientific reputation’ of the whale slaughterers, lol…

      Oh, hush. It’s valuable research! How else are we going to know the answer to the question, “How many whales can we catch in a day?”

    Does anybody get the subtle joke? Ningen means human in Japanese. This is obviously just a fake.

  22. SimplyAaron says:

    H.P Lovecraft’s In the Mountains of Madness much?

    Wait wait wait, am I the only one that caught this? 20-30 humanoids? That seems a bit large… wouldn’t they be calling them giants?

    Quick! Send in that douchenozzle from “Destination Truth.” He’ll get to the bottom of it (thanks in part to travel plans made via Orbitz.com) or maybe we’ll luck out and he’ll freeze to death trying.

    1) “estimated length of 20 to 30 meters?!?!”

    2) Great… not we are going to have Ningen 419 email scams!

    20 to 30 meters? I, for one, welcome our new…

    I can’t help but wonder what my boss is going to think when he sees “pinktentacle.com” in the log of visited sites…

    Since there seems to be some confusion, “whale research” is whaling, not research. That may be why the original keeps it in scare quotes.

  31. Jeff says:

    Even if it’s not real, that’s a pretty cool mythological creature. If you guys dig the ningen, an artist and I made an 8-page comic adventure centered around the beast. Check it out!

    This is just another one of Al Gore’s myths meant to help sell the United States to Europe for 100 billion rubles.

  34. trippcook says:

    When the best thing you’ve got are artist’s renditions, odds are the thing isn’t real. Good rule of thumb.

      Yeah. . . like that rapist they’ve been trying to catch– I totally don’t believe those artist sketches they posted all over town

      • demidan says:

        Or those so called artist’s renditions of the Flying Spaghetti monster, or the tea kettle on the other side of the sun.

        Ill Lich can count to potato!
