"A Japanese student aced an assignment on Ninja history by submitting a piece of 'blank" paper.

Eima Haga - first year student at Mie University in Tsu, Mie, Japan - had to write about the Ninja Museum of Igaryu for a ninja history class, with the promise of high marks for creativity.

"When the professor said in class that he would give a high mark for creativity, I decided that I would make my essay stand out from others", the 19-year-old student told the publication. "But when I actually heated the paper over the gas stove in my house, the words appeared very clearly and I thought 'Well done!'"

It wasn't until Eimi's professor heated the paper that he realised that she hadn't been brazen as f** a href="https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-49996166" target="_blank" *BBC, he said: "I had seen such reports written in code, but never seen one done in aburidashi".

Remember when teachers say, "extra marks for being creative?' Well, looks like this obedient student took it rather seriously and came up with the most creative idea that compelled the teacher to give her top grades".

She created the ink by soaking soybeans overnight, crushing them, and squeezing them through a cloth. She strived to prove what was written actually works and went through a trial-and-error process. "If it's too thick, it doesn't absorb the ink very well", she said. "She replicated what is written in records of ninja art".

Support for Trump impeachment rises, new poll shows
Overall in primetime, Fox News easily won with 4.30 million viewers to MSNBC's 2.77 million and CNN's 1.23 million. The poll also showed an increase in support for impeachment across a number of demographics compared with July.

Haga has been interested in ninjas ever since she was a child after watching animated television shows featuring the covert agents and assassins in medieval Japan.

Eimi Haga got full marks for her seemingly non-existent essay.

But Haga didn't want to risk her professor assuming she hadn't done her homework, so she left a note on the paper in regular ink saying "heat the paper".

Professor Yuji Yamada told the BBC he was "surprised" when he saw the essay. "It's been a while since I took a brush to write with an invisible ink", she said.

'To tell the truth, I had a little doubt that the words would come out clearly.

At first, the sheet looked like a piece of trash, but then the professor held it over a hot stove and black ink slowly began to appear.
