Continuity and Placement
- Kamen Rider Kiva: 10 years after the series finale.
After Zi-OTrinity is defeated, Sougo, Geiz, Tsukuyomi and Woz managed to escape from Kamen Rider Ginga's assault. When they're having a break in an underground tunnel, the Time Jackers led by Swartz appears. Swartz reveals that the being known as Kamen Rider Ginga is one beyond even his comprehension, thus he proposes a team-up with Sougo and co. Sougo asks about Another Kiva then, noting that her power is also needed, which Swartz agrees. Even then, Woz is suspicious about Swartz's true motive...
They met Yuko in the city, and Swartz tries to butter her up by praising her quality as queen before asking her cooperation to fight Ginga. Yuko agrees, but in return all of them must kneel before her. Swartz then forcefully bring Ora and Heure to kneel with his time powers. Sougo, Tsukuyomi and Woz are kneeling too, except Geiz that Sougo and Tsukuyomi need to force. But, after all that, Yuko rejects their offer and went about her way. Sougo goes up to her asking to remember how they met before she leaves.
Back in 95 DO, Sougo and his friends have a brainstorming session to defeat Ginga. Even after her rejection, Sougo still believe that Yuko, his so-called first love "Miss Sailor", can be convinced to help if they clear her name. Thus, a plan concocted: Sougo and Woz go to search for the evil Rider, Tsukuyomi searches for Yuko's supposed boyfriend to gather clues, and Geiz goes back to 2012, the year when Yuko is falsely accused of murder.
In the city, Ginga is attacking citizens when Swartz and the Time Jackers attack him. Sougo and Woz also arrive, they transformed to Zi-O II and Woz Futuring Shinobi, respectively. But even with their combined effort, Ginga is still very difficult to defeat... until it's raining and somehow the alien rider transformed to a statue, seemingly defeated.
With Ginga frozen, Sougo asks Yuko is she's really the sailor girl he's fallen in love with. Yuko confirms that and tries to recruit Sougo to her personal guard, after he revealed his dream in becoming king, when Jiro appears. The Wolfen Clan member said that Yuko is NOT a good person to follow and separates Sougo from her. They scuffle briefly and Sougo lost, but the Wolfen gives him the Kiva Ridewatch, saying that he waited for someone fitting to have it. He also said that in the near future, Sougo will experience a heartbreaking event...
Meanwhile, in a remote house in a forest, Tsukuyomi finds Yuko's boyfriend Tetsuya and his new girlfriend, they look absolutely scared of Yuko. Tetsuya even said that he dated Yuko once. The reason is becoming clear when Geiz is in 2012, at the park where the murder case of Yuko happened. There, Yuko cold-heartedly kills Tetsuya's new girlfriend while he was watching...
Back at 2019, Yuko meet the people responsible at putting her in jail and straight out murders them as Sougo watched helplessly. He went to confront her but he's still shaken and defeated, while Jiro left Yuko's side. In the same time, Ginga revives when the sunlight come back. Swartz deduces that he is powered by the sun. Sougo comes to Woz's and Geiz's aid and with the help of Yuko, finally defeat the alien with Triple Rider Kick. Swartz is ecstatic that he gains the Ginga Miridewatch, only to Woz snatches it.
The next day, Yuko appears at Tetsuya's wedding and planned to kill the bride when Sougo and co intercept. They transforms into their most powerful form to fight Yuko and her remaining two Arm Monsters. Sougo is about to use Kiva Ridewatch, but hesitated as he manhandled by Yuko. In the end, Woz uses the Ginga Miridewatch to change into WozGingaFinaly, and proceeds to defeat her. With the Kiva Anotherwatch destroyed, the Arm Monsters revert back into weapons, much to Geiz confusion. As Sougo is cradling the weakened form of Yuko, She asks Sougo to become the Umbrella of Humanity before Ora kills her. Sougo grieves over her with Geiz can't help but to look away...
Some time after that, Sougo is still shocked at Yuko's death that he has no motivation to do anything. He went out from 95 DO and meet a woman in bicycle, needing help. As he helps her, the woman said her thanks and in that moment Sougo knew that the woman is his "Miss Sailor"...
