Even though he is not the one leaving her baby's breath, Kintaros vowed to protect Kasumi while helping her reconcile with her father. Soon after that, the culprit of the attacks, the Ivy Imagin, arrives. Though Momotaros initially battles as Sword Form, Kintaros, after misinterpreting a word, removes him to fight the Ivy Imagin, whom he lets escape.

When Kintaros tries to make the father and daughter make up in the past prior to actually fighting the Ivy Imagin, he endangers the flow of time as a result and is to be banished off the DenLiner.

Hana sends Ryotaro to watch him as she keeps watch over the Tanabata despite being injured herself. Hana is unable to sell any candy due to her demeanor, but Naomi shows up along with Ryotaro to help her sell the Tanabata Sets while Kintaros and Urataros keep watch over the contract holder by keeping a nearly solid sand form within animal costumes while he is in the hospital with his irate boss.

The DenLiner crew chase the puppy, and they are led to what is supposed to be an empty train car filled with puppies, kittens, and a Swan Imagin holding a human baby.

Sieg reveals he intended to make a contract with a wealthy young woman half a year ago, but it turned out that she was pregnant and possessed her unborn child with no memory. When Sieg finally got his physical form, he had no memory of the contract's nature, and took his "brother" out of a truck when Ryutaros found him and brought him onto the DenLiner.

Yasuko Kobayashi July 15, 2007
After being arrested by the police, Ryotaro is questioned on his involvement with the kidnapping of baby Yūsuke Takayama. During the interrogation, Momotaros, Urataros, and Kintaros attempt to help him, as he has no knowledge of the event. On the DenLiner, Hana and Yuto try to understand what is going on, and Hana tries to talk some sense into Sieg about what he has done to Ryotaro. Hana tells him that a master has to take care of his servants, and with a slap, Sieg develops new respect for Hana and begins calling her Princess. Sieg manages to speak through Yūsuke to convince Shiori Takayama to acquit Ryotaro. Ryotaro is then brought to the Takayama mansion to be thanked, with Sieg possessing him with intent to live the good life forever. However, because he opened a contract with someone with very little memory like baby Yūsuke, Sieg begins to dissolve away. He goes to say goodbye to Yūsuke, but he is interrupted by the Scorpion Imagin's second attempt to bring Shiori to his contractor. Before Yuto can intervene, S-Ryotaro transforms into Kamen Rider Den-O Wing Form, managing to knock the Scorpion Imagin down. However, Sieg's dwindling strength allows the Scorpion to escape with Shiori. Sieg asks Ryotaro to save his mother, as he follows the Scorpion Imagin back in time to February 22, 2002, the day that Akio Masuda was fired by the Takayama family. Den-O fights the Scorpion Imagin as Rod Form and then Ax Form, and defeats him with a Dynamic Chop. Back on the DenLiner, Sieg continues to waste away until Ryotaro returns and shows the Owner a Rider Ticket bearing Sieg's image and the date June 1, 1997, that he got after using a Rider Ticket on Shiori. In reality, Sieg had already fulfilled a contract with the mother, before forging his contract with Yūsuke. Thanks to this, the DenLiner arrives on the day of Shiori's wedding, and Sieg leaves the DenLiner to live happily in the past.[24]

A sleepy Ryotaro then finds himself seeing a Pteranodon and several Brachiosaurus until Yuto uses an aerosol of sleeping gas to knock Ryotaro out, with him seeing Urataros as he enters his body. By the time he wakes up, Ryotaro believes what had happened was only dream, too drowsy to notice the dinosaur tracks on his wall. At the Milk Dipper, he tells Hana about the dream, and when she confronts Urataros, he knows nothing, and the others say that she should ask Yuto. Ryotaro helps Airi mind and decorate the Milk Dipper for a group of students, serving Yuto while asking him about his dream, that Yuto also knows nothing about. Miura arrives to tell Airi that he injured himself, and she leaves Ryotaro to mind the shop, and after a fight with Deneb, Yuto agrees to help by decorating with the various star-shaped balloons Airi had inflated. Deneb stands outside to watch, unaware of a second Deneb briefly chasing a group of ninjas. When Deneb notices a shuriken thrown into the door, Hana takes him away to question him and learns that he knows nothing. When a customer arrives, both Yuto and Ryotaro notice that the man is an Imagin's contract holder. They follow him to a local hospice while Hana and Naomi watch over the Milk Dipper along with Ozaki. When the Spider Imagin attacks, intent on granting his contract holder's wish for his sister to see a starry sky, Yuto is on his own as Ryotaro had been abducted by Deneb into the timestream. Deneb appears to take the Spider Imagin away from the room as Yuto is forced to fight himself, defeating the Spider Imagin easily in Zeronos Vega Form. As for Ryotaro, he finds himself on the ZeroLiner with another Yuto, who takes him to see the "Climax Scene", witnessing a battle between Zeronos and another Kamen Rider as well as the Tarōs fighting several ninjas until a giant train erupts from a cave.[25]

After witnessing the Tarōs fighting several ninjas and seeing the GaohLiner in the Edo period, Ryotaro is once again subjected to sleeping gas before he can ask Yuto anything, with Kintaros possessing him this time. Back in the present, an irate Yuto is intent to find Ryotaro for ditching him when Deneb tells him that a second Spider Imagin is still on the loose. Yuto charges Deneb with the task of safeguarding the girl while he himself confronts the worrisome Hana and the Tarōs on the train about Ryotaro's disappearance, only for Ryotaro to appear with a katana and several other Edo artifacts on his person. He asks Yuto why he was taken to the past by Deneb, but Yuto says that that would be impossible and the Owner reveals that such time travel would be both possible and impossible. They both go back to the hospital to watch over the Imagin's contractor and his sister in case the Spider were to attack, again, and they discuss the issues behind Ryotaro's disappearance, with a second Yuto listening. The Spider Imagin blasts an electrical tower, causing a blackout for the whole city, and this allows Mayu Aoki to see the starry sky, completing the Spider Imagin's contract with her brother. Yuto has Ryotaro go back in time to stop the Imagin, and once Ryotaro leaves on the DenLiner, Yuto is confronted by another version of himself. In the past, the Spider Imagin begins destroying various buildings, until Den-O appears, and Ryutaros begins to fight as Gun Form. While the fight goes on, Zeronos fires a shot at the Spider, distracting it, and allowing for an annoyed Ryutaros to switch with Momotaros and allow for Sword Form to deal the final blow. Ryotaro returns to the present, where he and Yuto watch over the brother and sister in Kibōgahara. Then, Ryotaro is abducted by Deneb and the other Yuto, who interfered with Den-O's fight, to travel back in time, again. Once possessed by Ryutaros, Ryotaro and two past selves make their way to the Climax Scene: the battle to prevent the mysterious Gaoh from destroying all time and space.[26]

Late on the night of August 2, 2007, two masked men sneak into the Milk Dipper, and try to pry up one of the floorboards while trying to silent. They are interrupted by a sleepwalking Ryotaro, and then by M-Ryotaro taking control and about to beat them up until Airi's coming in allowed the would-be thieves off to retreat, both unaware of being followed by the Molech Imagin and another Imagin yet to have physical form. The next day, Shōichi Ike, one of the burglars, is cornered by the Molech Imagin who had possessed his partner Hiroshi Katō, before being possessed by the Bloodsucker Imagin. While the two Imagin discuss their plan, Ryotaro, Airi, Yuto, Ozaki, Miura, Hana, along with Momotaros, Urataros, and Kintaros (in mascot costumes) have a stakeout at the Milk Dipper in case the burglars come back, having a sleepover. On the morning of August 4, Ike, once again, tries to enter the Milk Dipper, but he wakes Urataros who alerts everyone to the man's entry. The wide awake Hana and Yuto give chase while Urataros takes control of Ryotaro to help on the DenBird. When they catch Ike, he reveals that he was trying to retrieve a stash of jewels hidden in the Milk Dipper from a successful robbery in 2000, while his partner Katō is attempting to steal a rare necklace from Hope Jewelry with the Molech Imagin possessing him. U-Ryotaro and Hana go to deal with the Molech Imagin, while Yuto deals with Ike, realizing he too has a contract with an Imagin, as well. He chases Ike, running into the Bloodsucker Imagin who reveals that they planned to draw Ryotaro out. Yuto is forced to fight the Bloodsucker Imagin until the Molech Imagin succeeds in going back in time. Ryotaro pursues the Imagin to May 8, 2000, the day of the robbery where Katō is arrested. Den-O Sword Form destroys the Molech Imagin, though he delighted in the fact that he succeeded in his mission: distracting Den-O long enough for the DenLiner to be hijacked by his master, Gaoh. With these recent events, Yuto must go back in time to get reinforcements from past iterations of Ryotaro to fight Gaoh and prevent him from destroying all time.[27]

Yasuko Kobayashi August 12, 2007
After defeating Gaoh, the DenLiner gang celebrate their victory until Ryotaro remembers that Yuto mentioned he had been fighting an Imagin prior to their foray into the Edo period. Ryutaros, however, starts to get a sinking feeling as he and everyone notice that he, Urataros, and Kintaros are starting to dissolve. Ryotaro comes upon the Bloodsucker Imagin attacking people that have the stolen jewelry. Ryotaro assumes Ax Form, but he is unable to maintain it in the fight with Urataros attempting to jump in. Momotaros managed to get in and nearly defeats the Bloodsucker Imagin, until he is knocked into the water. Once Ryotaro returns to the DenLiner, the Owner reveals that Urataros, Kintaros, and Ryutaros are fading away due to the fact that Ryotaro only remembers the Climax Scene as Sword Form, thus why Momotaros is solely unaffected. Furthermore, there is no way to stop the deterioration like with Sieg. The three Tarōs seem to accept their fate, as a heart-broken Ryotaro runs off of the DenLiner. At the Milk Dipper, Yuto is being served coffee until a disguised Deneb reveals the situation to him. Hana tries to find Ryotaro, and succeeds, although he is trying to make his body stronger for the Imagin to save them. He remembers the good times he had with them, until he suddenly hears their final words in his mind as they disappeared. When he returns to the DenLiner, only Momotaros is left. Ryotaro begins trailing sand which the Owner states as the remains of Urataros and the others. Taking the Owner's advice, Ryotaro picks up some of the sand, reacting to his wish for all of them to be together and assuming the form of a cellphone, the K-Taros, as Ryotaro's way to stay in touch. Momotaros chalks it up to Ryotaro's lack of sense, to which a sadden Ryotaro simply agrees. Elsewhere, the Bloodsucker Imagin completed its contract and travels to May 20, 2000, attacking people until an upset Ryotaro arrives and begins to fight as Den-O Sword Form. However, the Bloodsucker Imagin is too strong for Sword Form to handle by himself. In the fight, Momotaros went berserk until the red cellphone starts ringing, and Urataros is on the other end. He tells Momotaros to put in the code "3-6-9-#", which makes the other Imagin speak from the phone before Den-O assumes Climax Form just as Yuto arrives. Den-O finishes off the Imagin with his Boistous Kick attack. Later the group celebrates the return of Urataros and the others until Hana punches Momotaros out of the DenLiner.[28]

Ryotaro sets up his own prize by allowing the Tarōs to take full control of his body for a whole day if they win, planning to perfect their teamwork in that fashion. While Ryotaro waits in line with Hana and a nervous Deneb, learning that the closed Fureaichou School happened to be where a murder was said to had occurred, a man named Machida is watching the people entering with an Imagin behind him. After Hana was disqualified for being easily scared by the first "zombie", whom she decked out, U-Ryotaro goes in and casually walks through the various "ghouls" until Momotaros takes over to speed it up. But once scared by a small chihuahua statuette, Kintaros takes over, only to open a door to a disqualifying room with Ryutaros upset that he does not have his turn. While the Tarōs argue over who is to blame, Machida enters the building as the Wasp Imagin attacks those who got to the classroom checkpoint. By the time Momotaros sensed the Imagin and Ryotaro gets to Machida, the contract is already complete and the Imagin travels back to December 5, 2005, when Machida committed manslaughter. Meanwhile, Deneb contacted Yuto about the Wasp Imagin, but during his call panics over a frightening part of the exhibit. Deneb's silence after the call forced Yuto to waste one of his two last cards, only to find Deneb alright. Ryotaro goes back in to fight the Wasp Imagin in Plat Form, convincing the Tarōs to go Climax Form. Though the quartet are unable to at first, it was their need to help Ryotaro that allowed them to achieve Climax Form and destroy the Wasp Imagin with Boistous Punch. Back the present, it turns out the "victim" was the neighborhood chairman, who staged the attraction to drive Machida out. With only one Zeronos card left, Yuto is upset and Deneb blames himself for the situation, leaving Yuto in shame.[29]

When the men sent to label things for repossession are about to tag Sakurai's telescope, Ryotaro tries to take it away, chased by the men until their superior arrives and intervenes. By the time they got back, Airi realizes that this is Fujishiro, who she had known when she was younger and he is also the owner of the company that she is indebted to. Fujishiro offers Airi a way to get rid of her massive debt: becoming his wife. Fujishiro leaves so Airi can decide, to which Airi follows to settle things. Miura and Ozaki are angered that Airi may accept the man's offer, as is Ryutaros, who nearly possesses Ryotaro before he is talked out of it on the promise of calling him. When Yuto arrives to see the state of the Milk Dipper, he and Ryotaro talk about the debt, with Ryotaro worried that Fujishiro might remind Airi of the Sakurai they knew, to which Yuto is indifferent.

Yuto sends Deneb after Den-O just in case due to the Imagin showing himself like that. As Gun Form fights the Anthopper Imagin Ari, Airi speaks to Fujishiro, turning down his offer, to which he is enraged and realizes that Airi must still have feelings for Sakurai. As Airi cannot remember, Fujishiro tells her everything about the past with Sakurai, as Yuto tries to get to the building before any damage can be done.

While Ryutaros and Naomi prepare for a party, Momotaros, Urataros, and Kintaros talk of their future not coinciding with Ryotaro's anymore. When Yuto finally catches up to Ryotaro and as the two start to question their actions, the remaining two Mole Imagin brothers begin to lure Den-O back in the past, destroying everything around them. It was then that Ryotaro accepts Yuto's decision to take the cards again, regardless of the consequences. They both transform and return to November 22, 2006 to confront the Mole Imagin brothers.

Ryotaro quickly assumes Den-O Sword Form to settle things here and now. But a bored Kai has other plans and turns himself into a time gate for the Leo Imagin to enter. Ignoring Kai, Sword Form arrives to January 19, 2006 to fight the Leo Imagin, but is forced out and Den-O assumes Liner Form to defeat the Imagin with Ryutaros' power. Though things seemed to be back to normal, Ryutaros is heart-broken about Airi as Kai begins his new plan.[38]

Yasuko Kobayashi October 28, 2007
After Den-O Sword Form destroy the Panda Rabbit Imagin as he just completed the contract, Ryotaro uses the card from the contact holder to go the time the Imagin was to terrorize. Once at September 13, 2006, Ryotaro and Kohana find Sakurai wandering there, adding to the mystery behind Kai. Meanwhile, Kai decides to express his anger towards Ryotaro with the female Snail Imagin aiding him. The next day, Ryotaro crashes into Yuto after he and Deneb went grocery shopping. After Yuto leaves him while they were discussing Airi's memory, Kai appears and engages Ryotaro in a talk about the morals of time alterations before Momotaros takes over and the Tarōs state their disgust for Kai. Annoyed with the "traitors", Kai sends the female Snail Imagin back in time to March 27, 1993, before Yuto acquired the Zeronos arsenal. Ryotaro and Yuto arrive only to see the Imagin kill the younger Yuto by destroying the field trip van. As a result, Yuto fades away before Ryotaro's eyes. Though she gloats, Ryotaro transforms to Liner Form and destroys the female Snail Imagin. Though Ryotaro expected Yuto to reappear as everything she obliterated was restored, only to realize he has no memory of Yuto at that time and the Zeronos Cards ensure no one at that time remembers Yuto, either. When Ryotaro returns to the present, he finds the Milk Dipper completely changed as in this time line, Airi and Sakurai had never met.[39]

Yasuko Kobayashi November 11, 2007
Succeeding in his machinations, Kai erases Yuto from the future time line, causing the Milk Dipper to become a girls' hang out with Sakurai gone as well. Furthermore, as only Kohana and the Owner remember Yuto, too, Deneb is now contracted to Ryotaro and part of the DenLiner crew. Later, while Ryotaro and Kohana ponder the Owner's words about memory's effects on people and the nature of Singularity Points, the girl gets taken by the male Snail Imagin. Ax Form attempts to fight until Kai reveals himself with the Gecko and Newt Imagin as backup. Kai reveals to Ryotaro that Sakurai is the true target of the Imagin, with his removal from existence allowing the future Kai came from to be realized. Though Ryotaro understood that Yuto's absence had a positive effect on the present, he could not accept it if it meant that Yuto sacrificed himself in vain. Meeting Kai again, Ryotaro tells him that he figured the future is not truly decided, causing everything to return to normal. Annoyed, Kai summons his Imagin to kill Ryotaro and Kohana. But Yuto arrived at the last second, having created new memories in the present through his actions as Zeronos. Seeing no chance, Kai sent the male Snail Imagin back into time while having the other two Imagin remain to fight. While Zeronos goes back in time after the Snail Imagin, Den-O deals with the two Imagin before assuming Climax Form to defeat them. On February 1, 1999, the Snail Imagin attempts to kill Sakurai when Zeronos arrives to fight. At the last second, Zeronos uses the unusual card with a red Z that he received from his future self to assume Zero Form. Though he destroyed the Snail Imagin, Yuto loses a portion of his own memories related to Airi, who also forgot about meeting the younger Yuto as well.[40] 

Candy Scandal[edit]

Yasuko Kobayashi November 18, 2007
While having Ryotaro help her go shopping, Airi's purse is stolen. Yuto stops the mugger in a spectacle, with Ryotaro shocked to hear that Yuto and Airi appear to be meeting for the first time. He follows Yuto to learn that the red Zeronos cards erase people's memories of Yuto himself and though his negation is the same as Kai's goal, Yuto justifies it to ensure the future. Meanwhile, Kai finds an ideal pawn in a girl named Shōko sending an Imagin to form a contract with her. That night, Deneb attempts to ensure Yuto will be remembered by possessing him when he is asleep. From there, D-Yuto begins to deliver his candy throughout the city at night to make friends until he finds Shōko sleeping on a park bench. D-Yuto's profound act of kindness by giving his coat to her results in Shōko falling in love with Yuto, giving the Oct Imagin a desire to work with. Meanwhile, while practicing to counter, the Owner tells Ryotaro that the Station Master will arrive and may reveal the truth behind Sakurai. The next day, Shōko arrives to await Yuto at the park as D-Yuto promised. However, Yuto learns of Deneb's deeds and is about to beat answers out of him when the Oct Imagin abducts him. Deneb attempts to save Yuto, but is hesitant when the Imagin uses Yuto as a shield. But Den-O Sword Form arrives and fights the Imagin, who turns the DenBird against him, which keeps Den-O from landing the deathblow before his bike bursts into flames. While Ryotaro and Yuto are perplexed by the Imagin's contract, with Deneb knowing why, Shōko is saddened by Yuto not coming.[41] 

Memory Update[edit]

42 "Memory Update"
"Omoide Appudēto" (想い出アップデート) 
Yasuko Kobayashi November 25, 2007
The Oct Imagin's attack leaves Yuto unconscious and Shōko heartbroken about not meeting Yuto, who is wounded in the fight. Deneb reveals that he is the reason for the Oct Imagin attacking Yuto, who regains conscious and has to be restrained by the DenLiner gang to keep him from killing Deneb for risking innocents in spite of his intentions. Deneb takes Ryotaro to the park to find Shōko, though Deneb asks if Urataros can handle it as a favor. With that, U-Ryotaro resolves the matter, though she preferred to return the coat to Yuto personally. Meanwhile, Kai psychically tells the Oct Imagin to complete his contract first before killing Yuto. The next day, D-Yuto retrieves the coat, but soon spends time with Shōko at the city zoo with Ryotaro following them until the Oct Imagin resumes his attack. Den-O Rod Form attempts to take out the Imagin until a severed tentacle possesses a nearby truck and attempts to run him over. The Oct Imagin manages to make his way to Yuto and Shōko, forcing Yuto to assume Zeronos Zero Form to travel to November 15, 2006. Once there, Zero Form manages to keep the Imagin from killing Sakurai. Zeronos holds his own until a tentacle possesses the ZeroGasher and attacks him. The Imagin then attempts to choke out Zeronos until Den-O Liner Form arrives and the two combine their attacks to destroy the Oct Imagin. However, a piece of the Oct Imagin's tentacle enters AuraLiner, bringing it life as it enters the time-railway and becomes a hydra monster. Both the DenLiner and the ZeroLiner are overwhelmed by it until the KingLiner arrives and all the trains combine their firepower to destroy it. Though Shōko loses her memory of Yuto, Ryotaro assures him that Airi will remember him based on what Owner told him. By the time Ryotaro returns to the DenLiner, he meets the Station Master who gives him something very important to provide explanations behind the Junction Point.[42] 

Something Missing[edit]

Yasuko Kobayashi December 2, 2007
After giving Owner his Gold Spoon collection, which everyone thought would answer their questions, the Station Master reveals he doubts that Sakurai is the key to the Junction Point. In the present, Ryotaro and Kohana ponder Owner's words that something is amiss in the Sakurai mystery and Ryotaro's memories may not be as true as everyone thought. However, while training Ryotaro, Momotaros senses the Armadillo Imagin as he fulfilled his contract. By the time M-Ryotaro arrives, the Imagin retreats into June 25, 2005. M-Ryotaro was about to chase after the Armadillo Imagin when Kai and the Albinoleo Imagin arrive. Kai then reveals the result of Den-O's impact is erasing all Imagin by giving Ryotaro an ominous revelation: the "day he and the Tarōs will part ways" draws near. Horrified and confused by this, Ryotaro demanded an explanation from the Tarōs, with Momotaros changing the subject with the current crisis. Ryotaro arrives to confront the Armadillo Imagin, but refuses to use the DenKamen Sword and attempt to restrain the Imagin. Zeronos Zero Form attempts to aid Ryotaro, but Ryotaro's reluctance to kill places both Riders at a disadvantage until the DenLiner saved them. However, the incident drives a wedge between a disgusted Momotaros and a vexed Ryotaro, who decides to end his contract with the Tarōs, wishing them to leave him alone. But as the Armadillo Imagin stowed on the DenLiner, Kai questions why Yuto protected Ryotaro instead of Sakurai.[43]

The other Tarōs have to restrain an enraged Momotaros while Ryutaros is speechless. Once at the Time Station, Urataros and Kintaros take Momotaros to calm him down as he leaves, still hurt about Ryotaro's choice. While Yuto helps Ryutaros in understanding Ryotaro's position, Hana goes back to the present to get advice from Airi on her feelings for the Taros. Back at the Time Station, Urataros and Kintaros see the Armadillo Imagin as he's about to attack, holding him off as Ryutaros arrives to back them up. Ryotaro is on his way when Momotaros halts him, forcing Ryotaro to fight him to prove he has what it takes to fight on his own. But Ryotaro admits that he is afraid of losing the Tarōs, but knows he must fight to protect time. Understanding Ryotaro now, Momotaros apologizes for not being honest about the recent events, revealing that he wants to protect the present as well along with the other Tarōs. With that, the two hurry to the others' aid, with the Den-O team back together. Going through each default form, Den-O overwhelms the Armadillo Imagin until assuming Climax Form to finish the fight. Soon after, on the DenLiner, Naomi set up a meal Kohana made to celebrate the Tarōs staying with the team as Owner to Ryotaro reveals the final battle is about to begin. Back in the present, Kai is fixated on why Yuto saved Ryotaro instead of Sakurai, realizing that there's something else he had forgot and Ryotaro is somehow tied to it.[44]

Learning that the watch was sent to him by himself, with no recollection of the act, Ryotaro heads to the clock shop he and Airi went to last year for Sakurai's watch to get to the bottom of it. Learning that last year he ordered the watch for August, Ryotaro is even more confused and remembers Owner's words about his memory before going to find Yuto to take him to the day Airi lost her memory. But as Yuto refuses to help Ryotaro, hiding something from him, the clock shop owner inadvertently opens a contract with the Snowman Imagin. Once learning of the Snowman Imagin, Den-O Sword Form intercepts the Imagin and is unable to keep it from going back in time as he attempted not to destroy the Santa balloon in the vicinity. But in spite of Yuto's pleas not to, Ryotaro goes back in time to January 10, 2007, the day Sakurai disappeared and Airi lost her memory, to learn what truly happened. Once assuming Liner Form, Den-O destroys the Snowman Imagin and then Ryotaro heads to the lake where Sakurai disappeared. When he arrives, he sees Sakurai, as Zeronos Altair Form, fighting off a trio of Leo Soldiers before Kai opens a time pulse with the ZeroLiner covering Ryotaro and Yuto. In the midst of the explosion, Ryotaro sees Airi before she and Sakurai fade out of existence with the rest of the area. Only Ryotaro and Yuto remain, watching a jubilant Kai celebrating his victory on the desert wasteland.[45]

Meanwhile, as Kai needs to find Ryotaro before his condition gets worst, Deneb tells Yuto how he made his contract with Sakurai and his intend to fight for Yuto to the very end. But even at the Christmas party at the Milk Dipper, Ryotaro is still bothered by the information he amassed. The next day, Ryotaro is encountered by Kai who uses Ryotaro's memory to cover the truth. By the time Yuto arrives, Kai sends the Albinoleo Imagin to January 10, 2007 so he can kill their true target: Airi. Though the Riders use the KingLiner to intercept the Imagin, they are unable to defeat him in Liner and Zero Forms. But at the last second, Sakurai himself arrives and assumes Zeronos Altair Form and the three Riders succeed in killing the Imagin together. Once the battle is over, Sakurai takes his leave without answering Ryotaro. Back on the DenLiner, the Airi from the past arrives and reveals to know about Sakurai becoming Zeronos and Den-O's mission, apologizing to Yuto and Ryotaro for causing them to suffer by protecting her. In spite of Ryotaro's pleas, the Airi of the past leaves the DenLiner to resume her place in history, but not before Yuto gives her a white flower which she brings with her on the day she apparently died by Kai's hand and lost her memory of Sakurai. But though he finally understands what truly happened that day, Ryotaro feels even more uneasy about his missing memory and Airi's words of a hope from the future. Meanwhile, knowing his true target, Kai takes in every contract-less Imagin, forming a massive army to succeed in destroying Airi.[46]

Later, Ryotaro visits a shrine with Airi to make his wish, seeing Yuto there as well. Meanwhile, after reminding his Imagin who's in charge when they demand him to send them into the past, Kai begins his attempt to erase Airi by sending his massive Imagin army raging in the past while providing the timedate June 16, 2000 to Ryotaro. While Yuto remains to protect Airi, Den-O Liner Form goes back into time to take on the massive Imagin army. But Den-O learns too late that it was a trap, with Zeronos holding his own against the Imagin still in the present. Den-O was unable to hold them all off until Kintaros arrives and takes the Den-O Belt. Giving Ryotaro a model of Kintarō and other items that represent the other Tarōs, Kintaros uses Ryotaro's resolution to complete his contract with him though it meant he can't return to the DenLiner.
