Sounds cool? Yes, only on the anime series. But in real life, those kind of events can make a huge damage and sometimes costs some lives near the affected area.

The houses vanished in an instant when the ground where they are built suddenly collapsed due to the huge sinkhole beneath it. Cut electric cables, leaking water lines, metal rods and some debris hanging on the other side of the wall were all left when the dust disappeared.
