もう世間では等身大の巨大ロボットの話題もなりを潜め、巨大な建造物への関心は薄れて、精々第二東京タワーに思いを馳せる程度になりました。

In this world, people are already losing interest in gigantic structures, that the topic of life-sized giant robots has died off, that the second Tokyo Tower comes only as no more than a passing thought.

新しい鉄道も高速道路も空港も改めて造る必要はなく、昭和の象徴、ダム計画は当然のように中止され、今や世情は巨大な構造体を求めていないのでしょう。

There is no need to rebuild new railways, highways or airports, symbols of the Showa period, and naturally dam projects are cancelled. The world isn't asking for more gigantic structures.

いやしかし、元来人間は巨大な人工物に憧れる物だと思うのです。時には権力の象徴であり、時には信仰心の現れであり、生活に密着した巨大建造物も多かった筈です。

However, I think it's natural for humans to be attracted to gigantic structures. At times they are a sign of power, and at times they are a display of faith, and so many gigantic structures are closely related to our way of life.

その巨大な建造物への関心をやれ無駄遣いだ、やれ非エコだと押し殺し、細々と暮らしている今の私達は一体なんの為に生きているのかと、考えさせられます。

We have been made to think that building gigantic structures are a waste of effort and not environmental-friendly, hence we suppress these thoughts, pondering on just what we are supposed to live for while just barely making a living.

どうも、いつものZUNです。巨大な建造物が大好きです。

Hello, ZUN as always. I really love gigantic structures.

非想天則はそんな巨大な何かへの興味に踊らされた人間、妖怪達の勘違いエピソードのゲームです。このサントラに出てくる様な巨大ロボが出てくる訳ではないですよ? 虚像に踊らされて、みんな誤った結論を出してしまっただけです。

Hisoutensoku is a game of the episode of misunderstandings between humans and youkai that have been manipulated by their interests in a gigantic object. It's not because a giant robot like on the cover of this soundtrack will show up right? Manipulated by the illusion, everyone can only make their own misguided conclusions.

巨大な建造物には写真では伝えられない魅力があります。つまり、画面を見ているだけでは味わう事が出来ない感動があります。巨大な橋、厳つい工場、巨大ジャンクション、そして異様とも言えるダム。そんな物の見学が最近になってにわかに脚光を浴びてきた様に見えるのも、モニターの前で細々と暮らさなければいけなくなった現代人なら理由は自明でしょう。

There is a charm in gigantic structures that cannot be conveyed by photos. In other words, I have an impression that we can't savor it merely by looking at an image of it. Gigantic bridges, grim factories, huge junctions, and even bizarre dams. Lately I've visited these places and suddenly saw them bathed in a new light, and for the modern people who must barely make a living in front of the monitor the reason should be self-evident.

さてさて、そんな巨大な建造物を眺めて呑める居酒屋とかあったら誰か教えてください。

Now, if there's a bar where I can view gigantic structures while drinking sake, please tell me.

ダム決壊居酒屋とか。

A bar near a dam being torn down, maybe.
