This is the fourth chapter of the Senki Zesshō Symphogear manga.
In a flashback, Tsubasa and Hibiki are fighting a mysterious girl who is wearing the Nehushtan Armour. Unfortunately, the girl bests Tsubasa, and Hibiki is captured by the Noise, which are also being controlled by the girl. In desperation, Tsubasa tries to take back the Nehushtan Armour and prove her worth by singing her Superb Song...
The flashback is interrupted when Ryoko Sakurai gives Hibiki a poke to bring her out of her daydream. The Division 2 team is in the middle of a meeting to discuss the transfer of Sacrist D (AKA Durandal), one of the few remaining complete relics, out of fear that the Nehushtan girl might attack Division 2 and steal it. Of course, she's just as likely to try to steal Durandal while it's en route to its new location, so Genjuro asks Hibiki to protect the relic as an escort.
Meanwhile, Tsubasa is in intensive care, dreaming of Kanade. She feels that she's useless without her former partner, and can't accomplish anything. But Kanade tells Tsubasa that there's more to her life than mourning her and saving lives in her stead. Tsubasa doesn't understand, but Kanade tells her to go out and find the answers, and the dream ends there.
At home, Hibiki tells Miku that she wants to go out for a walk, and asks Miku to leave the door unlocked for her. Hibiki and Ryōko along with Division 2 agents drive fast to hide the Sacrist D., but they're attacked by the Nehushtan girl, who wants to steal Durandal. She attacks Ryōko's car and believes them to be dead, but Hibiki suddenly activates her Gungnir to protect Ryōko and fight the Nehushtan user. Hibiki tells to the armoured girl that she'll protect Durandal and everyone no matter what. The armoured girl attacks Hibiki, but Hibiki dodges easily. While singing, Hibiki inadvertently activates Durandal, leaving the Nehushtan girl shocked. Ryōko smiles evilly.
