For the series' main character, Agito, see Shoichi Tsugami.

Kamen Rider Agito (仮面ライダーアギト, Kamen Raidā Agito, Masked Rider ΑGITΩ), is the eleventh installment in the popular Kamen Rider tokusatsu franchise. The series represented the 30th Anniversary of the Kamen Rider Series. The series was also a joint collaboration between Ishimori Productions and Toei and was shown on TV Asahi from January 28, 2001 to January 27, 2002. The catchphrase for the series is: "Awaken the soul" (目覚めろ、その魂, Mezamero, sono tamashii).

The average ratings of the series was 11.7%.[1]

The series was released on the TOKU network on November 3, 2020. It is the third Kamen Rider series released in the United States and the first not released by Shout Factory.[2]

Agito and Kuuga

Kamen Rider Agito is often seen as a direct sequel to Kamen Rider Kuuga thanks to the basis of the G3-System being Kamen Rider Kuuga. Some sources claim otherwise that Kamen Rider Agito takes place in a parallel universe similar to Kamen Rider Kuuga due to the severe timeline inconsistencies within Agito itself that set it as occurring only months after Kuuga's chronological events, despite statements to the contrary within the show about two years having past. Statements from Kuuga's cast and producton staff deepened this divide.

The issue was explained in a note in the Agito production website from TV-Asahi made by producer Shinichiro Shirakura, but was not available to English-speaking fans until around January 2013.[3]  Any official record of the statement has since been lost:

"[...] Yusuke Godai fought so hard to put smiles on everyone's faces that if another conflict were to break out afterwards, it would diminish the value of everything he fought for. [...] You're free to enjoy Agito as a continuation of Kuuga if you so wish, or imagine it takes place in a parallel world, if you so choose. I know this may be hard to understand, however, I hope you will accept that Agito takes place '2 years after #4 destroys the Unidentified Lifeforms', it is not exactly a sequel to Kuuga, so keep that in mind when watching. In order to really meet the expectations of both [those in favor of a Kuuga sequel and those that wanted an entirely different direction], I should have waited about 10 years before starting "Agito" as a completely new program, but whether it was a sequel to "Kuuga" or not, "Agito" brings a theme that is relevant to 2001."
―2001.2.5 By Shirakura, the producer in charge of Agito[src]

The connection between Agito and Kuuga was referenced in Kamen Rider Decade, where their World of Agito which is visited by Decade and the Hikari Studio, which includes the A.R. World Kuuga, is shown as a parallel world to the World of Kuuga. Aside from the new creatures the "Unknown", there are also the Gurongi, and the two races are shown to be fighting each other.

There was also a small nod in the movie OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders, where Kuuga and Agito are shown standing alongside each other with Kamen Riders Black and Black RX (Black RX is indeed a sequel to Black, to the point where these two Riders are the same person).


A man named Shoichi Tsugami has lost his memories. He doesn't know who he is, where he came from, or how he came upon his peculiar circumstances.

Tsugami, seemingly for no reason, transforms into a powerful superhuman, Agito, whenever in the presence of the beings referred by the police as the "Unknown", a race of powerful monsters that have been causing murders around Tokyo, targeting certain people as their prey.

In response, the police department unleash their newest weapon: the G3 powersuit, originally developed to fight against the "Unidentified Lifeforms", the enemies of No.4 (Kamen Rider Kuuga). G3 and Agito don't know whether they should join up and defeat the Unknowns, their common enemy, or to combat each other, keeping the mysteries that entwine them separate. Ultimately, even more mysteries unfold, with the appearance of Kamen Rider Gills, who is on a search to uncover why his father committed suicide.

These mysteries and others collide, as the true nature of Agito would ultimately determine the fate of humanity.

A few albums were released for Kamen Rider Agito, mostly original soundtracks for the series and film.

International broadcasts

  • On April 24th, 2021, Agito, alongside Faiz and Ryuki, appeared dubbed in Spanish on Latin American countries except Brasil and Puerto Rico in the streaming service FreeTV.


  • Agito is the first Kamen Rider series to feature the three main types of Riders: a mystical Rider (one that draws power from ancient technology or mystical methods), an organic Rider (one whose anatomy changes to become a Rider), and a high-technology Rider (one who is either a cyborg or uses advanced technology to fight).
  • This is the last series where the Kamen Riders transform using the traditional Ishinomori style henshin belt, as future installments would use the modular "Rider System" type.
  • This is the first Heisei Rider series with more than one titular Kamen Rider appearing in the series, as everyone who has been bestowed the power of Overlord of Light has the potential to transform into Agito. In the series timeline Shouichi is the second Agito, with his sister Yukina Sawaki being the first Agito, and followed by numerous people slowly becoming it, but most of them failed to transform into Agito, either because they commit suicide or are killed by The Lords.
  • This is the first Heisei Era Kamen Rider series that has a connection to the previous series.
  • This is the first Rider series with a "speaking device", in the form of G3-X's GX-05 Kerberos. This would begin a significant usage of speaking devices within Kamen Rider; all of the Visors of the Riders in Kamen Rider Ryuki would likewise speak, while the Drivers of Kamen Rider 555 would be the first transformation device to speak.
  • This is the last series that is associated with Nippon Music Group. From Kamen Rider Ryuki onwards, Avex Entertaiment became the new music label for Kamen Rider Series.
  • At Japan World Heroes 2017, after revealing he auditioned for Kuuga but didn't get the part, Noboru KanekoIcon-crosswiki.png revealed at a panel that he then auditioned for two roles in Agito: Shoichi Tsugami and Makoto Hikawa. But he failed to pass the final auditions. After a try at getting a villain role, including growing his hair and nails and trying to "act mean" to do the role, Noboru was called by his agent who said he got the role as GaoRed of the then-new Sentai series: GaorangerIcon-crosswiki.png.
  • The word "Agito" is Latin for "keep going", "move", fitting the theme of endless evolution of the titular Kamen Rider and the show itself.
  • This was the first show to include a romanized title "MASKED RIDER AGITΩ" to the show's logo, a title that would continue to this day.
