Cody MacArthur Fett: It's interesting to note that Misato's apartment is not only the only apartment in the building that we see the inside of, but it's also the only apartment that gets any details added to it at all. Is this meant to show the depopulation of Tokyo-3, is it a biting commentary on human nature, or is it simply a case of the animators getting lazy? That's something you're going to have to decide for yourself.
thewayneiac: As was pointed out in Episode 03, it seems that Misato's apartment is the only one that is occupied.
NemZ: Oh, I’m sure at least one apartment somewhere nearby has been converted into an outpost for the children’s security detail.
