The Kuuga-Agito Connection, A Clarification

Kamen Rider Agito is often seen as an direct sequel to Kamen Rider Kuuga thanks to the basis of the G3 System being Kamen Rider Kuuga. Some sources claim otherwise that Kamen Rider Agito takes place on a parallel universe similar to Kamen Rider Kuuga.

But thanks to Over-Time and Aesir's translator, Magenta and some anon who asked him to translate a text coming from the Kamen Rider Agito production site, we finally have a clarification regarding the Kuuga and Agito connection coming from the show producers.

And I quote:
You're free to enjoy Agito as a continuation of Kuuga if you so wish, or imagine it takes place in a parallel world, if you so choose. I appreciate this may sound like an asspull, however, so I guess I would say that while Agito takes place '2 years after #4 destroys the Unidentified Lifeforms', it is not a sequel to Kuuga, so take to the show with that in mind.

The reason why the producers want us to think Kamen Rider Agito as an independent story, it is because, "Yusuke Godai fought so hard to put smiles on everyone's faces that if another conflict were to break out afterwards, it would diminish the value of everything he fought for."

Thus the Kamen Rider Agito staff want Kamen Rider Kuuga to be a standalone, conclusive story in which at the end, Yusuke Godai protected our smiles. And with that in mind, I salute the Kamen Rider Agito production team.

Special thanks to 4chan's /m/ board for the making this topic... in a Go-Busters thread!
