"I am Hiryu Kakogawa. Sougo Tokiwa! We're fated to cross paths countless times."
―Another Zi-O introducing himself to Sougo.[src]

"Live for the present? Don't make me laugh! You have no idea what a tragedy this has been for those who weren't chosen! Which is why I have a test for you: can you still spout that same nonsense... after I've taken everything from you?"
―Hiryu to Sougo after becoming Another Zi-O II[src]

Hiryu Kakogawa (加古川 飛流, Kakogawa Hiryu) is a young man who transforms into Another Zi-O (アナザージオウ, Anazā Jiō), an Another Rider derived from Kamen Rider Zi-O.

History

Background

On April 24, 2009, Hiryu Kakogawa and his parents were involved in an bus accident orchestrated by Swartz. Hiryu was amoung the children who were teleported away before the bus crashed inside a tunnel, killing the adults. An unconscious Hiryu arrived in an alternate timeline where a city under attack by several Dai Mazines. Sougo Tokiwa saved Hiryu using his unconscious temporal abilities. Swartz realized the potential in Sougo and modified his memories. Returning to the site of the bus crash, Sougo and Hiryu were admitted into a hospital. However, Sougo was picked up by his uncle, while Hiryu had no one left. Since then, Hiryu blames Sougo for his misfortunes, unaware of the whole truth behind the incident.

Rise of Another Zi-O

In present day, Hiryu Kakogawa was scouted by Swartz to become Another Zi-O. Hiryu went on a hunting spree against former Another Rider hosts to harvest their Anotherwatches and crosses paths with the Kamen Riders. Recognizing Sougo Tokiwa, he still blames him for the bus accident that killed his parents, despite Sougo having little memory of the events. Sougo realizes that nothing he says will change his mind and chooses to fight Hiryu. However, a chance for Hiryu to fighting Zi-O would be interupted by Geiz Myokoin, who recently accessed GeizRevive. He later assists the Time Jacker Heure to siphon Kamen Rider Woz's powers from White Woz.

While Hiryu manages to raise an Another Rider army, he pursues on his hunt for Sougo Tokiwa. Finding his target with Geiz Myokoin, Another Zi-O battles him but is stopped by Geiz. Despite having a larger force, both Sougo and Geiz manage to overcome and defeat Hiryu. Despite the fact Sougo didn't clearly remember their past, he decides to apologize to Hiryu, suggesting he keep on living in the present and not dwell in the past forever. Hiryu finally breaks down and the Zi-O Anotherwatch is destroyed, before mysteriously returning to normal.

Reign of Another Zi-O II

Hiryu came back as Another Zi-O II

After a long absence, Hiryu resurfaced as Another Zi-O II and declared to take what Sougo should have obtained instead and had changed the timeline. Ruling the world with an iron fist, he also can summon other Another Riders to his disposal and reverse time. He continues to work with the Time Jackers as they serve as his advisors, while assisting them with favors such as capturing Tsukuyomi.

After his plans were mostly stopped thanks to Sougo's persistence, Hiryu finally demands Sougo for one last duel, with him bringing forth a whole army of Another Riders with Sougo, Geiz, Woz, and Tsukasa Kadoya facing him. In the end, Hiryu was defeated once again by Kamen Rider GrandZi-O which restores the timeline back to how it was before. Although his Anotherwatch still remains intact, Daiki Kaito stole it from him. Swartz also appeared and proceeds to tell Hiryu that he never had a quality of a king to begin with, further disheartening him in disbelief. With his power taken away from him, Hiryu's fate is now unknown.

Personality

Due to the traumatic death of his parents, Hiryu became a self-centered and twisted individual, using Sougo as a scapegoat for his misfortune. This single-minded enmity for Sougo contributes to his lack of thought, making him easily susceptible to manipulation by others. Yet beneath this antagonistic persona, Hiryu is an emotionally wounded man consumed by grief, unable to accept the past.

Unfortunately, his first defeat from Sougo does not stop him, instead making him even worse than before. Allowing resentment to further consume him, Hiryu decides to rob everything Sougo would obtain as Ohma Zi-O, seeing it as a means for revenge.

Alternate Another Rider Forms

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Hiryu Kakogawa is portrayed by Yu Sakuma (佐久間悠, Sakuma Yu). As Another Zi-O, his suit actor is Kazuya Okada (岡田 和也, Okada Kazuya).

Etymology

Kako (加古) is a homophone of the Japanese word for Past (過去, Kako), reflecting on his character unable to get over from his past.

Concept Art

Another Zi-O,Another Build, Another Ex-Aid, Another Ghost and Another Faiz were Yutaka Izubuchi (出渕 裕, Izubuchi Yutaka).
Another Gaim and Another Faiz were designed by Tamotsu Shinohara (篠原 保, Shinohara Tamotsu).


Notes

  • Another Zi-O is the first Another Rider who doesn't have a "twisted" version of the original rider's belt but instead uses a recolor of the belt of the rider he is based on.
    • He is also the first Another Rider to have a different year than his Kamen Rider counterpart; Kamen Rider Zi-O was created in 2018.
    • He is the second and last Another Rider to have an upgrade form (Another Zi-O II), The first is Another Kuuga (Another Ultimate Kuuga)
      • However, while Another Zi-O requires a different Anotherwatch to achieve Another Zi-O II, Another Kuuga has to use the same Anotherwatch and put it into another person to fuse with him into Another Ultimate Kuuga.
  • He is the second person to use more than one Anotherwatch. The first was Ryuichi Sakuma.
  • Despite being based on Kamen Rider Zi-O, Another Zi-O's ability to transform into past Another Riders makes him more analogous to Kamen Rider Decade due to his ability to transform directly into past Riders rather than a form based on them.
  • Another Zi-O's undersuit has an inverse color scheme of the original Zi-O.
  • As with every Another Rider, Hiryu as Another Zi-O is the polar opposite to Sougo, and to an extent, Geiz.
    • Sougo: Hiryu was given the power of Another Zi-O by Swartz to antagonize Sougo, whom he believed to be responsible for his parents' deaths. Ironically, they are both unknowingly manipulated by Swartz himself. Sougo was destined to become Ohma Zi-O, and attempted to change his destiny by becoming a benevolent king. Hiryu is unable to get over from his past, while Sougo is more willing to move on.
    • Geiz: Both of them want to defeat Sougo. Geiz's motivation is to prevent the tyranny of Ohma Zi-O, while Hiryu does so to ease his emotional pain. Geiz is willing to help Sougo if needed, and genuinely comes to see him as a friend. Hiryu continued to oppose Sougo, becoming an outright villain in the process.
