Song Used

Over "Quartzer"


  • New super hero time for Zi-O and LVSP.
  • Continuity - In episode 1, Tsukuyomi mentioned that Sougo did poorly in subjects outside of history. When Zi-O uses his Build form, instead of physics equations flying in the background, they're text saying things like "I don't remember this equation, difficult formula, don't understand^3, can't remember^3".
    • In Ep 01, they briefly show a "room for rent" sign. At the end of Ep 02, the sign is in the trash because uncle has rented it out to Tsukuyomi and Geiz.
    • Since the house is also a clock shop, the plates uncle uses are also designed like a clock face.
  • When Zi-O acts like a hero for the first time by rescuing Tsukuyomi and Geiz, the word "Rider" on his face plate briefly flashes.
  • The main theme of the episode is time being stopped. During the scenes when Zi-O talks about the subject, there's a stop sign in the background. Or they'll be fighting near a street where the word "stop" is written on the ground.
  • Sougo's optimism shows, his catchphrase seems to be "I've got a feeling this will work out!".
  • When Build is erased, Sento and Banjou become members of Tsunagiiz, which is Satou Tarou's band. Satou Tarou was the man whose face got swapped with Sento's in Build Ep 16.
    • At the end, Sento says he's Katsuragi Takumi, Sento's past identity. None of these alternate timelines make a lot of sense, and the message from Episode 2.5 seem to be to just "not think about it".
  • When Sougo performs the Time Break attack, the text on his face and bottom of his foot light up, saying "Rider Kick".

Actor Trivia


  • After the first 13 episodes, it was decided to switch Uhr's spelling to Heure.

The rules governing Zi-O's world:

  1. The same Rider's power cannot coexist in the same time.
  2. Another Rider can only be defeated by the same Rider's power.
  3. Things are the way they are, if you nitpick it, you'll get kicked by a horse.
