The old Kazuma Yagami respect thread got trashed because of reasons (ask UD). You want to make a new one or should I? It will probably take a while if I do it since I would need to rewatch the anime, and go through the light novel again to collect the excerpts.
47 Gauna (albeit of undefined size and with unclear methods) managed to split the planet Earth in half.
Their core is also tough enough to survive the indirect blat from a planet buster missile which made an entire gas giant violently explode (think of small star busting level yields there)
The Large Mass Union ship also reached the Lehmn system from 3 lightyears away under a few months at best.
The moethod is unknown but if that was merely their "standard" travel then all vessels in the series are FTL.
Otherwise speed-wise there's a feat of Guardians reaching a dwarf planet 1 million kilometers away under just 1-2 hours and skilled pilots especially Tanikaze was capable of dodging Higgs Particle beams that travel with nearly lightspeed.
Power-wise it's a bit hard to put down where the early type Guardians stand but the latest types can literally fly through the Sun and be just fine (save for the pilot getting cooked)
They can also lift small mountains worth of rocks and their mass accelerator cannons should be comparable to that ferry ship's which made a blast that could be seen from space and rapidly altered the environment of the entire planet.
Heavy Mass Cannons like the one used early in the series should be orders of magnitude stronger than the above.
They're also experimenting with Gravitational Beam Emitters.
One of the Hybrids can power one and it rapidly made a gaping huge hole in one of the planets.
Easily in the low yottaton range.
Sidonia can theoretically build a similar device if they use up all the ship's energy reserves to power it.
So yeah, it's a quite strong series.
I've read through Knights of Sidonia but I don't remember the high-lighted (or maybe I'm just misremembering it, I dunno). For the sake of accurately evaluating all of the series' feats, you mind telling me what chapters/arcs those occurred in?
I'd really appreciate it. I thought of doing a calc for the Large Mass Union Ship basically covering an entire planet in placenta near the end, but I really couldn't think of any good ways to quantify that, at least not in terms that would easily apply to the DC/durability of individual Gauna.
Hey dude, just wanted to know what your reasoning on this is?
Even if they happened at once, we do see the blur..
0.1 seconds in general can work for blurry effects IMO
Totally Not A Cat brought up an interesting point
Do you have a cellphone? Almost every phone has a chronometer built into it.
My right arm is 0.76m long, if I wave it forming a semi circle in front of me, the trajectory of my hand should be that of half of a circle's circumference that has my arm as a radius, so 2.39m
If I wave my arm moderately fast I'm able to see a blur, by your logic that'd mean it must've happened over 0.1 seconds or less meaning I'd be able to casually move wave my arms at 24 m/s.
But in reality, my chronometer tells me I took 0.44 seconds to wave my arm. I know I'm not a superhuman, and 5.42 m/s is perfectly reasonable speed for anybody to flail their arms at. This is a good example of the blur meme not being consistent with real life, much less with the art style of any Bob Joe or Susan Antonieta
Think 0.1 seconds would work for panels where it's implied to take place in an extremely short timeframe and the blur spans the whole distance of the feat?
The video/game runs in 30 FPS for me. Wouldn't it be closer to 20700000 m/s or 6.9% LS? I also think that we could use the 0.0083 seconds timeframe based on the description which would push it closer to 82800000 m/s or 27.6% light speed
By the way have you seen Relics yet? An old ship that had been rotting for nearly eighty years or something on the surface of a dysons sphere is able to produce enough energy to prevent the doors on the sphere from closing long enough for the Enterprise to escape.
