Continuity and Placement

Plot

"According to this book... Rejoice! You've graduated! No longer a high schooler, Sougo Tokiwa is destined to become the demonic king of time, Oma Zi-O. To obtain the demon king's power, he needs to gather the six remaining Ridewatches. The owner of that rider power that he should obtain this time is... Kamen Rider Agito, Shouichi Tsugami..."
Black Woz[src]
At police headquarters, the G3 units are starting to train after so many years, led by Takahiro Omuro, the current commander of the unit. It appears the police plans to mass-produce the G3 units. Suddenly, an unknown creature appears and attacks the G3 units brutally...

Meanwhile at 95 DO, the gang is discussing about Ohma Zi-O's message to Sougo about the remaining six Ridewatches that Sougo needs to collect. To their surprise, Sougo apparently wants to follow the instructions given and find them, but not to become Ohma Zi-O: rather that he feels that as he stands now he's no match for the demon king. Then, Junichiro Tokiwa comes back home and shows them the news about G3 unit's assault. Tsukuyomi identifies the assaulter's identity as an Another Rider.

In a restaurant in France, the news about the attack on G3 unit is received by a chef, Shouichi Tsugami, and he immediately returns to Japan.

At a bar, the Uhr and Hora are discussing about Swartz's weird behavior as of late. The leader then appears and says that he doesn't need their help on his new plan.

When looking for the Another Rider, Sougo asks Tsukuyomi about her time in resistance. But Woz interferes, he said that the girl was afflicted with amnesia before joining, and "Tsukuyomi" is actually a code name. Then they arrive on the G3 training ground where the units are once again attacked by the Another Rider. Sougo, Geiz, and Woz transform and engage him, and eventually Sougo learns that the enemy is Another Agito. However Another Agito ignores the three Riders and attacks the G3 units instead. He bites one of them, and the G3 operator is transformed into Another Agito! The newly transformed victim bites a police officer, and he too, transformed into Another Agito! It seems that this Another Rider can multiply by infecting people! 

As Another Agito attacks Omuro, Tsukuyomi protects him and suddenly freezing time. Another Agito with his army then retreat, as Swartz watch the event unfolds with interest on Tsukuyomi's power.

Back in 95 DO, the gang talks about Another Agito, that only attacks G3 unit and can multiply. Sougo tries to search about "Agito" on the web and found a restaurant named "Agito", and he alongside Geiz go to investigate. Woz then reveals to Tsukuyomi that he saw her using time freezing power.

Sougo and Geiz arrive in Restaurant Agito where they meet Mana Kazaya. After Sougo flunked his introduction twice, he asks about Agito's whereabouts. Mana knows Agito as "Shouichi", but he is currently overseas. After Sougo and Geiz excuse themselves, Shouichi calls Mana, informing that he is back at Japan to help Omuro. Woz then appears before Sougo and says that Another Agito is attacking again.

Meanwhile Tsukuyomi is sitting out from this investigation as she's confused about her power. She is found by Swartz who is intrigued about the girl's power and summons the original Another Agito to force her to use it.

Sougo, Geiz and Woz arrive as the Another Agitos are attacking G3 units and ignoring the police officers around them. Sougo transforms into Zi-O II, Geiz transforms into Geiz Revive and Woz transforms into Futuring Quiz to battle, but the battlefield is total chaos, confusing Sougo. He then uses the Zi-OTrinity Ridewatch to fuse into Zi-OTrinity, but Woz insists to announce their ascension, to Sougo and Geiz's annoyance. Nevertheless, they managed to defeat one Another Agito, but the others are missing...

The original Another Agito continues to chase Tsukuyomi relentlessly, as she still cannot control her time freezing power. Suddenly Shouchi Tsugami appears and helps her, by transforming into Kamen Rider Agito! But this is actually Swartz's trap, as he plans to steal the Power of Agito...

Production image with Batta Yummy headpiece.

  • Through a brief glimpse, the Another Agito that Kamen Rider Woz was fighting had a head of the Batta Yummy. This is due to the headpiece being recycled for the multiple Another Agitos and later digitally inserting the Another Rider's headpiece post-production.
