Demon Slayer 4

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

Demon Slayer is back again! Fans of the series be ready to prepare your wallet as they are about to be drained by these awesome prizes!

Retail Cost: SGD13 Per tix

Release Date: March 2021 (SG)

Total Tickets: 90

The cost of the ticket is normal, the total tickets is 90 so optimistically speaking more of us get to enjoy the product (Demon Slayer Kuji are usually very popular and if you don’t act fast, it will be gone before you know it)

Prize A (2 pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

This is the 4th Tanjiro Figure for the set, apart from the third, Tanjiro has appeared in every other set for this series. What is special is that the pose for this figure is different so fans who have gotten their hands on earlier Tanjiro figure don’t have to worry about getting him again!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

This is the fourth Nezuko figurine as well in the series. Nezuki has appeared in all except the second set for the series. Her pose is different than others as well, and it’s Nezuko so do we all have any complains here?

Prize C (2 pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

Zenitsu looks awesome here, this is the 3rd Figurine released for him in the series, he has appeared in the third and Movie set. His pose resembles the one from the Movie set but this is fully standing straight. Cool prize.

Prize D (1 piece)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

Why does Bandai not gave us more Innosuke! (T_T) This is one of the best figure in the series! Not only does he has interchangeable head, he has effect parts too! This is the second Innosuke figurine in the series, the previous one was in the Movie set, but it does not have the interchangeable head.

Prize E (2 pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

Amazing Rengoku, he has a fire effect underneath him and a great looking pose. This is the second Rengoku in the series, the previous was in the Movie set.

Prize F (2 pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

Giyo is back once again, his only other appearance is in the second set, great to see him again. His pose resembles the one from the second set so he is probably the one that fans who have his previous figure wouldn’t get, but newer fans who just started can look out for him!

Prize G ( 1 piece)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

Shinobu faces the same issue as Innosuke as each set only has 1 of her figure, which is really sad since she is an awesome character in the show. Her only other figurine in the series was in the third set and her pose is similar to this one. By providing only 1 piece, she is definitely the rare piece to look out for when drawing tickets.

Prize H (20 pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

The illustration board are usually one of the prize a fan wouldn’t want to get since they don’t provide any usage, but this is totally different, not only does the front art looks amazing, but this illustration art does have a back art that looks just as amazing!

The sad part about this is that the illustration art is in a blind box so you cannot choose your preferred designs and also makes collection very hard 😦

There are 10 designs, each set has 2 of each designs.

Prize I (28 Pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

Normally you will hear someone complained about towels because if you buy Kuji long enough, the one thing you will have a lot would be towels. However, this is not the feeling I got when I looked at these amazing towels! The long towels are simply amazing with each main characters and the Hashira being featured! The small towel are decent looking as well, but nothing beats the long towel.

You can choose the towels so do check the availability of the designs before buying the tickets as the long towel would be very popular.

There are 10 designs (5 long 5 small), Tanjiro, Zenitsu and the Hashira long towel has 4 each, Nezuko and Innosuke has 3 while the other small towel has 2 pieces each in a set.

Prize J (30 pieces)

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

The charms are very adorable and if you are a fan of the show, you will love them! They featured all the main and side characters as well as the villains. The charms are blind as well so you will not know what you are getting, which makes collecting super difficult.

There are 20 designs, I am again not sure which 10 has 2 pieces in each set and which 10 only has 1.

Last Prize

Ichiban Kuji Demon Slayer -IV- Become a Stronger Blade than Anyone

This is a variation of Nezuko, with her outer cloth being a different color than the one in Prize B. It’s a Nezuko figure so it will most likely motivate anyone to buyout the remaining tickets to get her figure.

Conclusion

This set is amazing especially for Demon Slayer fans! It’s as though Bandai really stepped up their game by giving you good quality stuff! Even if you get the small prize (Art, Towel or Charm), you don’t feel so bad since it’s an amazing quality item, just don’t buy the ticket if the towel design you want is not available since it’s the only thing you can choose.

If you intend to collect everything, you can start by purchasing 30 tickets when the odds is good, you should get at least 2 or 3 figures, then start hunting down your missing items from others who have gotten it so you won’t end up spending too much and accumulating too much spare small prizes.
