Two characters from the 2005 series will be making a return for Kamen Rider Zi-O‘s Hibiki arc.
Episodes 33 and 34 will be a story arc featuring Another Hibiki. Making an appearance in these episodes is Shingo Kawaguchi as Todoroki (Kamen Rider Todoroki), the ally to Hibiki. Also featured is Yuichi Nakamura as Kyosuke Kiriya, a rival for the protagonist of the 2005 series, both striving to become Hibiki’s pupil. The MyNavi News article presents the question “In 2019, has Kyosuke become Hibiki?”
Kawaguchi is mainly known for his role as Todoroki, as he even went on to reprise his role in Kamen Rider Decade‘s World of Hibiki, but he also played Masahiro Yamamoto (Green variant of Kamen Rider Mage) in Kamen Rider Wizard.
Nakamura got his start in this Hibiki role, but is best known as Yuto Sakurai (Kamen Rider Zeronos), the secondary Rider from the acclaimed Kamen Rider Den-O.
