JAPAN — One year and one month since the establishment of the Tokyo Restricted Zone following the Shibuyu Incident in May of 2009, construction has been completed on the thirty-five foot tall concrete wall surrounding the city of Tokyo as boundary for the Restricted Zone.

This event coincides with Prime Minister Taro Aso's establishment of the Public Security Section of the Ministry of Home Affairs, the new head offices of the Mugai-ryu which have been serving as the primary law-enforcement body within Tokyo since the June of 2009. The Public Security Section of the Ministry of Home Affairs re-establishes the chain of command of Japan's national defense and intelligence departments and is comparable to the restructuring of the United States' national security agencies following the inception of the Department of Homeland Security.

The Public Security Section's primary task is the enforcement of the Japanese National Registry and the neutralization of Evolved threats within the boundaries of the nation of Japan, officially expanding the Mugai-ryu's authority beyond the walls of the Tokyo Restricted Zone.

This move comes just one month ahead of a proposed plan to relocate certain Evolved out of Tokyo, further narrowing the rights of Evolved to travel freely within Japan. At current, Evolved of different classifications (similar to the American tiering system) are not allowed to travel to certain portions of Tokyo. Category 1 Evolved who "do not possess abilities capable of physical harm or applications that could be used for espionage" have freedom of movement within the city, while Category 2 and 3 Evolved have narrower restrictions.

As of the end of August it is expected that all Evolved of Category 2 and higher will begin their removal from the city to planned Evolved communities across the country.

Since their in-statement in 2009 following the Shibuya Incident, the Mugai-ryu have bolstered their numbers from 150 to 327 Evolved members.
