Before the events of the series, Dr. Hinata was one of the surgeons who saved the life of Emu Hojo and inspired him to become a doctor.
Hinata reviewed Asuna Karino's choice of the genius gamer M as a candidate for becoming a Kamen Rider. While he pointed out that there was already a candidate on his way, he ordered her to reopen the CR. He gives Asuna a suitcase with a Gamer Driver and Mighty Action X Gashat.
Graphite, considering the CR a threat to his plans, pursued and infected Dr. Hinata in an effort to cripple the CR. Dr. Hinata was rushed to the CR and Emu, feeling he owed the man who saved his life, recklessly tired to save his life despite the good doctor advising him not to do anything rash. He was later visited by Kiriya who asked questions about his history with Emu.
After Kuroto revealed himself as Kamen Rider Genm and showed his alignment with the evil Bugsters led by Parad, abandoned Genm Corp which left it without a CEO. Kyotaro issues an order for Kuroto's arrest and is currently looking for a replacement CEO for Genm Corp.
