燃えさかる火の玉から宇宙人?

Aliens From a Brightly Burning Fire Ball?

十尺の巨人現る!

A 10 Shaku[1] Giant Appears!

○月○日の午後、妖怪の山の西側に巨大な火の玉が落ちていくのが多くの人間に目撃された。普段、人間のみならず妖怪も立ち入らない荒廃した辺境の為、その正体を確かめる事は困難を極めた。音も衝撃も無く、ただの隕石では無い様子である。

In the afternoon of the Xth day of the Xth month, humans observed a large fire ball descend towards the west side of Youkai Mountain. As a consequence of this being a remote set of ruins, inaccessible to both youkai and humans, confirmation of its true form is very difficult. Without sound or impact, this is not your ordinary meteorite.

また火の玉の目撃から、山の麓では十尺(=3メートル)を超える巨人の目撃が平行して報告されている。巷では、火の玉は墜落してきたUFO、巨人はそれに乗っていた宇宙人だと噂され、通称十尺の宇宙人と呼ばれている。

In the same timeline of the fire ball been in sight, there were also reports about a giant over 10 shaku (= 3 meters) tall. There are rumors that the fire ball was actually an UFO and the giant was an alien riding it. The giant have been called "ten-shaku-alien".

宇宙人? まさかそんなSFじゃああるまいし、と思っている読者も多い事だろう。私もその一人だ。という訳で、火の玉と十尺の宇宙人の正体を念写した物がこの写真である。

I'm quite sure many readers are thinking, "An alien? I doubt it's something so Sci-Fi like that." I happen to think the same. With that in mind I've taken and attached a spirit photograph of the fire ball and the 10 shaku giant's true form.

写真を見て判るとおり火の玉の正体は空飛ぶ木製の船であり、十尺の宇宙人は妖怪、鵺(本名:封獣ぬえ)であった。肉眼で確認すると正体不明な存在でも、念写ならば真実が見えるものだ。早速彼女に取材を試みた。

As you can see from the picture, the fire ball in its true form is a flying wooden vessel, and the 10 shaku alien is a nue youkai (real name: Houjuu Nue). You cannot see the true form with your naked eye, but spirit photography can reveal the truth. I tried to interview her.

「ただ探し物をしていただけよ? 飛倉の破片を全部集めろって言われたんでね。それにしてもどうして私の正体が判ったの?」

"I was just searching, you know? I was told to collect the pieces of the flying vault. And how did you reveal my true form?"

火の玉UFOも十尺の宇宙人も、ただ単に人を寄せ付けない様に演出していたのだという。

The fire ball and ten shaku alien were just an act to keep people away.

「私は”正体不明の恐ろしい何か”に見えるように演出していただけよ。誰かが宇宙人だ、って言い始めたから、一人歩きして宇宙人に見える様になったんでしょう。それにしても十尺もある宇宙人ねぇ……」

"I was just trying to look like a "scary unidentified object". I've heard people started to say I was an alien, so the rumor just self-developed making me look like an alien. But a 10 shaku tall alien you say, hmm..."

都市伝説という物はこうした噂から始まるのだ、と説明する彼女は、正体ある物を正体不明へと変えてしまう力を持っている。実在が確かで正体不明な物、これは誰にでも噂レベルの正体を当てはめる事が出来るという事である。まさに今回のような都市伝説を生み出す存在と言えよう。

As someone with the ability to make objects unidentifiable, she explained that so-called "urban legends" are born from such rumors. That is, you can make up rumors about the true nature of anyone, since you cannot confirm their nature. This could give birth to another urban legend entity, just like the one created by this incident.

Reference

1. ^  A shaku is an old unit of measurement about 30.3 cm in length.

  • From the data that the alien is approximately 3.03 meters tall or 9.942 feet tall and a fireball accompanied it, it would be implied that Nue borrowed the image of Flatwoods monster.
