By the end of s.CRY.ed, Kazuma performs two especially destructive feats. They both seem at least island to country level, or somewhere in that range, but the definite DC is not known. The result could either be higher, or significantly lower, and that's why I was hoping that someone would be willing to calculate the exact DC of the feats.
The feats (the first one performed with extreme effort, the second performed casually as can be):
Dimensions of the oval width/height = 1188 pixels / 862 pixels
I know that the circle I drew didn't trace the curve completely, but that's only because the artist didn't draw a proper curve and didn't get the Earth's proportions right. I know the planet is oval, and not perfectly round, but it's not THIS oval, only a little bit. And because of that, if I use either the equitorial or the meridonial diameter, there'll be a considerable difference between the results, so I'll just take the average of the height and width, which is 1025 pixels.
Explosion's area = radius^2*pi = 436938036615 metres^2 = 436938.036615 kilometres^2 (almost equal to Iraq's area, the 59th largest country in the world, out of 196 countries) = Country-Level
This is most likely the real area of the explosion, and by a very good margin.
For once, my eyeball-stimation was correct
Country-Level Kazuma it is. And because the country-level category is fairly big (a difference of x14 between low-end and high-end), his strongest attack may be Country-Level+, or borderline Large Country-Level, I dunno.
Eva01, I got it from the cross-sectional area of the pillar which you yourself calculated. And no it wouldn't. If I throw a baseball across the field, would be a able to demolish the walls of a building with it? Of course not. It didn't go through any resistance whatsoever. Similarly, that pillar didn't go through any resistance so the energy could keep going without being spent.
1. Iraq is bigger than Tunisia. Does it make sense that Kazuma's strongest attack is inferior to his casual attacks? Of course it doesn't.
2. Just the base of the beam easily left a crater the size of Tunisia (check under the spoiler tab in the OP), what do you think the rest of it, which, of some is off-panel, would have done if it was shot into Earth?
1. I have no idea why you're bringing Iraq into the mix.
2. The crater is like 50 - 100 km deep or so, not thousands of kms deep. I can think up of many examples that I would be able to upgrade just using the length of a beam and how much would be destroyed if there was matter in that path. But it's pointless, we can only look at the effects of an attack unless we're given clear, concise evidence about their parameters. Who knows, maybe that beam that shot into our space would have dug another 50 or so km into the ground. Seems reasonable. Not the thousands you have there.
2. It's just that I can't see that being the case when only the very bottom of the beam left that crater behind, almost all of the energy behind that attack escaped into space. I mean, it's not like Earth becomes significantly harder and harder to destroy as you dig deeper, once you get to the mantle, it's basically all the same resistance from there. You estimated the crater to be 50 km - 100 km deep, well, the crust is only 35 km thick, so the base of that beam is already digging into the mantle, I'd say the rest of the beam can plow through just fine.
Eva01, How about this. He punched his opponent sideways, right? In laws of momentum for fluid mechanics, the fluid spreads out evenly in both directions if it hits at a 90 degree angle (or normal) to the surface, right? We can apply this to the energy, which means that half of the energy impacted the Earth. So, if I say that the crater is 50-100 km deep (might be less or more than that, I just eyeballed based on the mountains, could be less actually), we double that value for the total energy, right? See, that's applying a similar law to deduce what would happen instead of taking the whole length of the beam that traveled through a vacuum.
Eva01, Because when it comes to motion, everything without definite form generally behave the same. For instance, with that punch, which hit the guy square on, why would most of the energy go upwards? The arm is even tilted more downwards. Energy generally spreads in all directions.
тиваненк Not in a lolshonen manga where you can shoot a giant energy blast in the form of a pillar instead of spreading like a nuke would. Perhaps you'd be right in realistic terms, but as you can see, this is anything but realistic.
Eva01, In lol shounen, you have large pillars of fire that barely do any damage. The argument can go both ways. We need to use reasonable and logical assumptions instead of taking the travel time of a beam through a vacuum. I thought you were more flexible than this.
тиваненк I am, but this shit is stupid, you may be taking it too seriously. Also, I never talked about the travel time of the beam, what are you referring to?
Also, the ridiculousness varies from one manga to another. And this one is pretty ridiculous. If it doesn't adhere to the law you're bringing up (energy spreading equally in all directions), then it shouldn't be applied.
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.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
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...
Feb 20, 2020 13:42:15 GMT
Dream: ...manipulation last week.
