The Drei Ritter - From left to right: Shimon's Daughter (Unnamed), Shimon Miroku, Shimon's Son (Unnamed)
The Miroku Clan wield ultra-heavy weapons forged from the Asuka-Miwayama meteorite. A single cubic micrometre of this material weighs over 100 kg, in other words, it has a density of 100 kg/μm^3, which is equal to 100000000000000 kg/cm^3:
The Miroku are capable of swinging these weapons at supersonic speeds at the least, generating destructive sonic booms along with quasi-black holes that could crush their opponents.
Now, "breaking the sound barrier" is not the most accurate description. If we want to know what the kinetic energy behind their weapons are, we need to know exactly how fast they're being swung, but we only have a range of velocities here, which is "at least supersonic" (since no upper limit was given in description).
The term "supersonic" itself denotes a range of speeds, which is between Mach 1.1 and Mach 4.9. Since Shimon was stated to "easily break the sound barrier", rather than "just barely break the sound barrier", I think it's clear that his speed is higher than Mach 1.1 (bare minimum supersonic speed), but it's uncertain whether he reaches into the hypersonic range (Mach 5 and above), so I think it's fair to apply to him the average of the supersonic velocity range, which is Mach 3. So we'll take that.
Now, we also need to know the mass of the weapons. Instead of calculating the mass of each of them, we only need to calculate that of the daughter's, since her's is the biggest, and her brother and father are at least on par with her.
Blade width (spine-to-edge) = 100.184829191 px = 28.3 cm
Blade thickness at spine = 8 px = 2.26 cm
Spine width = 73.3552997404 px = 20.7 cm
Edge to imaginary line = 432.075224932 px = 122 cm
Calculating the volume just off of that, would be inaccurate, you have to take the edge's taper into account, so I modelled the whole thing in 3D.
Front view with volume (sketch unit = centimetre):
Back view with sketch:
Now, if you look at the sketch and the model, you'll notice I couldn't get the edge chamfer to trace the middle arc perfectly (doing so would've required to do a complex loft profile extension on both ends of the blade, and the middle, which ultimate wouldn't change the volume much), I could only get it to trace either the middle portion of the arc, or the ends, so I opted to have it in-between.
Kinetic Energy Calculation:
∵ Arch Blade Volume = 18282 cm^3
∵ Blade Density = 100000000000000 kg/cm^3
∴ Blade Mass = volume*density = 18282*100000000000000 = 1.8282*10^18 kilograms
∵ Swing Velocity = Mach 3 = speed of sound*3 = 343.1*3 = 1029.3 m/s
∴ Kinetic Energy = 0.5*mass*velocity^2 = 0.5*(1.8282*10^18)*(1029.3)^2 = 9.7*10^23 Joules = Large Country-Level+
So the Drei Ritter are Large Country-Level+, and that's by sheer physical strength.
Zero, speaking of heavy swords Yun che from against the gods uses a great sword that weighs over 5 million kilograms but it’s actual weight is probably in the tens of millions his sword is a spirit sword that can get more powerful if it eats other rare and powerful swords and gets heavier as a result.
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
