According to the franchise history of the Neon Genesis EvangelionOn September 13, 2000, the second of the three great events took place on Earth as a result of the intervention of the First Ancestral Race. This event was the result of the Contact Experiment conducted by the Katsuragi Expedition on Adam, led by Dr. Katsuragi, Misato’s father.
The experiment awakened Adam, which generated an explosion that melted the Antarctic ice caps and shifted the Earth’s axis. The scientists controlled Adam, but they only managed to limit the damage and prevent the complete extinction of humanity. Sea level rise, tsunamis, and the resulting armed conflicts have wiped out half of the human population and had huge geopolitical implications for the nations of the Earth.
After the Second World War and the resulting wars, the Japanese government abandoned any hope of rebuilding Tokyo. Instead, the capital of Japan was moved to the city of Matsumoto in Nagano Prefecture, which was renamed “Tokyo-2”. Construction of the new capitol began in 2001, and by 2003, Tokyo-2 was functioning as the center of the Japanese government.
Even after the wars, the environmental effects of Second Impact remained. The change in the Earth’s axis of rotation has changed the way we experience the seasons around the world. In Japan, autumn and winter disappeared, as the country settled into a perpetual state of summer. The song of the cicadas, long a feature of Japanese summers, was a feature throughout the year.
