Song Used[edit]


  • Kabuto is the 35th anniversary for the Kamen Rider series.
  • Hiyori uses the boyish term for "I" in Japanese, "boku".
  • When Tendou announces his name, he points to Tokyo Tower and the sun. The path of heaven is another way of saying the path of the sun through the sky.
  • When Tendou is exercising, he does his signature kick as Kabuto, which won't appear till episode 2.
  • Hiyori appears at the beginning of the B part. After she meets Tendou, we see the flicker of the sun through some trees. Hiyori's last name means "Under the sun".
