How many people died in Tokyo-3 during the War Against Angels? We don't know how populated the city is, but assuming that at least all the NERV personnel live in the city, and considering the size of NERV's operation, there could be several hundred thousand people working for them to keep things running smoothly 24/7/365. Yes, that seems like a lot, but the city is pretty massive, and those hosing blocks are designed to fit a large amount of people, so there could have been several million people residing there at the time in order to support the hundreds of thousands of people living in the city. I know a government (run by the MAGI's decision making process) was mentioned in the show at some point, with a city government in place, it would lean towards the city being partially, or even fully inhabited considering it was to become the new capital of Japan within a few years in the show's timeline. That would be a big draw for a shiny new, state-of-the-art metropolis in a post-apocalyptic world.
Now, its foolish to think no one died in some sort of collateral damage from the JSSDF's missile barrages, the N² strikes, an Evangelion crushing them randomly, the Angel's actual attack, or their general tendency to explode. I mean, some Angels wold have no effect on the city, like Gaghiel, who was not encountered in the city, nor was Sandalphon. But the others, excluding the two I mentioned along with Adam, Lilith, and Kaworu, the other Angels would definitely have a body count associated with them. My guess is at least 10,000 died if everyone was super lucky, but just form the sheer damage some of the Angels brought with them, on the worse side I would have to say 100,000+
So, what are everyone else's thoughts on...?
