Although generally publicized as the new capital city to replace New Tokyo-2, it is actually a fortified city for intercepting the Angels which was built in anticipation of Angel attacks. However, the only real intercepting force is the Eva, and the city mainly performs support functions. Towering armoured buildings -- supporting facilities disguised as ordinary buildings -- stand clustered in the centre of the city. These buildings house the Eva launch exits, electric power supply, replacement weapons and ammunition, and supporting guns. There are also many intercepting weapons installations positioned around the city. Underground the city is the expansive Geofront, at the centre of which is located the headquarters of Special Agency NERV. In episode 25', the city was first attacked by the JSSDF, after which the Eva series were committed to the battle. This annihilated the entire combat capability of the city except for Eva-01.
