During the decade between 1976 and 1986, a man’s life was torn upside down after coming in contact with a theater doll said to be possessed by multiple anguished spirits.
The legend of the Iki Ningyo, or Living Doll, is cemented in infamy in Japan. This is primarily due to the doll being thought to have caused a disastrous TV broadcast incident in 1979 that thousands recall witnessing live, especially years later on sites like 2chan. This specific TV broadcast only aired one time and is now lost media.
Today, let’s delve into the story behind the Living Doll and understand why this urban legend still terrifies people in Japan today.
