Titre original : A Promise to the Future
With only three days remaining before Miyabi must return to Kyoto, Akari and the others make plans for a proper send-off. Meanwhile, as Miyabi is offered a stage for her final day, she decides she wants to compete against Sakura in order to challenge herself. Struggling to come up with what to write for Miyabi's farewell banner, Akari comes across Miyabi and Sakura doing some naginata sparring. As Akari becomes downhearted about Miyabi's pending departure, Sakura tells her about the experiences she learned when Ichigo went abroad three years ago, assuring her that their hearts will always be connected no matter how far apart they are. On the day of the concert, which Miyabi wears Starlight's uniform to, Sakura ends up winning the concert, but the crowd remains impressed by Miyabi's performance. After the send-off party, Akari and the others send Miyabi off with a banner assuring her that they'll meet again someday.
