Important things that happened
- Kino had a younger brother whose name is Kino Masato. The brothers were hiking together on snowy mountains. However, they somehow went through an accident which led the younger brother to a weakening condition. The brothers were then taken to immediate medical attention after they were rescued from the mountains. The doctors were unable to save Masato's life, but they were able to save Kino's life. Unfortunately, Kino's right arm suffered severe frostbite because he removed his own right-hand glove to try his best in keeping the unconscious Masato alive while the brothers were on the mountains. Eventually, the doctors grafted him with Masato's arm. Even though the arm transplant surgery was a success, Kino felt guilty for not being able to save Masato; each night in his sleep, he has nightmares of his failures.
- Kino earned a reputation of being a man who no longer walks in the path of light. His surgeon license was revoked due to the medical association found it unacceptable for a grafted arm doctor to perform surgery. Now, he's an underground surgeon who isn't officially recognized in any hospital.
- Kino is not a man who shows his positive side to people. When he helps repairing Shouichi's motorcycle, Mana's power activates and senses Kino's past. She immediately feels uncomfortable with the man being around. Following his accident on the mountains with Masato together, Kino is obsessed with doing his best to rectify his mistakes; he treats many patients as Masato. Kino thinks he must do it alone, particularly fighting the Unknowns as Agito. He attacks Majima and considers himself as the only Agito needed to fight the Unknowns.

List of Guests in Agito
- For Kino, fighting the Unknowns as Agito and saving lives as a surgeon are similar things. So when it's revealed that he's a lone wolf in surgery, it should be taken as foreshadowing for his betrayal of Ryou and Majima at the end.
- Kino is associated with darkness and blackness. His choice of clothing is black in general and his surgery garb is also black.
- This episode introduces the new Kamen Rider Agito opening, using the song introduced in the movie which came out a couple weeks prior.
