Gou decides to solve the case himself separately, without the help of Kiriko & Tokujo’s Members.

New Case: Residents in a new residential area are continuously being attacked & sent to a state of apparent death.




The Investigation Division decides to do a Joint Investigation with Tokujo but Investigation Manager Mitsuhide Nira makes them change their mind. Shinnosuke Tomari (Kamen Rider Drive) gets angered by this but in the next moment, it disappears. Brain (Brain Roidmude) joins the Investigation Division as the Advisor. Shinnosuke Tomari realises the identity of this Advisor to be Brain. He attacks Brain but the other Investigation members did not realize that Brain existed , nor that he was a Roidmude.
