Hibiki Tachibana (立花 響 Tachibana Hibiki) is a character appearing in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Mei in a collaboration event with Senki Zesshō Symphogear XD Unlimited. She is a Symphogear wearer sent alongside Chris Yukine and Miku Kohinata to track down a missing artifact in the Higurashi world.
Hibiki has short beige hair and orange eyes. Her school uniform consists of a white shirt with red tie and a blue, plaid skirt.
Hibiki is very kind and energetic.
Hibiki is a Symphogear wearer allied with S.O.N.G., an organization that deals with problems in various parallel worlds. One day Hibiki and her comrades were sent out to stop another organization from cloning the Nephilim, a former enemy and using it for evil. They retrieved the Nephilim's core but it fell into Kazuho's world, with Hibiki and her friends chasing after it to bring it back or destroy it.
Role in the Story
Hibiki and her friends are introduced rescuing the club from monsters that appear in Yagouchi shortly after a meteor crashes down in it. Because the monster is an Alca-Noise and not a tsukuyami, the club members are unable to harm it with their Role Cards. Hibiki and her friends use their Symphogears to vanquish the Noise and run away soon after when police draw near.
Hibiki tracks an energy signature to the ritual warehouse at the Furude Shrine, where they encounter Kazuho, Miyuki, and Nao. After some confusion they all introduce themselves and explain their mission. Miku confirms that nothing is in the warehouse, and the group heads to the junkyard soon after on Nao's request. There they reunite with the club when hordes of tsukuyami attack them, followed by the reawakened Nephilim. Hibiki and her S.O.N.G. comrades transform to fight it, but are unable to overcome the Nephilim's regeneration even with their combined power.
Kazuho manages to create Role Cards based off of the girls' Symphogears, with Rena obtaining a replica of Gungnir to wear. With this added power, the Nephilim is defeated. The group celebrates, with Hibki planning to use the rest of their allotted mission time to have fun in Hinamizawa.
