Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Figure Line: Layer Scape

Top Prize Appearance: 5th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Tanjiro has never failed to miss any Demon Slayer Kuji set thus far, I doubt he ever will, oh wait, Demon Slayer 3 he wasn’t around! Regardless, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. This is a brand new line of figure that not only does it include the character figurine, it does have the a background as well! As you can see, Tanjiro looks amazing! Regardless how many Tanjiro you gotten, you can’t deny that this is a cool looking figure. You can also get a shot at double chance if you didn’t manage to pull it.

Prize B (2 pieces)

Figure Line: Layer Scape

Top Prize Appearance: 5th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Nezuko will never go wrong, and this Layer scape also comes with a seat for her to sit on! So it’s as amazing as it looks! Also Nezuko tend to be smaller than the other figures but not for this! It’s the same size as the other prizes!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Figure Line: Layer Scape

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Giyu is next and shockingly he does not appear that often in previous set! So having Giyu as the top prize here feels fresh and he certainly looks good! Each top prizes have 2 pieces which is very generous of Bandai, I mean they can always make one of them more common and the other rarer.

Prize D (18 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 8 x 2 pieces each. 2 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This looks the visual art from the previous set but it’s not! These are illustration board! They are thick kind of board and you won’t feel like you are getting something cheap! The designs are all very simple, was expecting something like the previous set and also Tanjiro appears in 9 designs, wonder if that’s necessary? Also Rengoku and Tanjiro appears in 4 of them, just lack of variety here.

Prize E (17 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 7 x 2 pieces each. 3 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

OMG more towels, oh wait, these aren’t towels! They are washcloth! The materials are way different and softer! The designs are very good, they do give the demon slayer feels, they don’t have a similar theme but you can see that each one is very unique and will look good if you display them!

Prize F (19 pieces)

Design: 13

Distribution: 6 x 2 pieces each. 7 x 1 piece each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Rubber charms are next and they look cute but the inconsistency here is the characters involve, they don’t include all the 9 pillars. The characters look adorable but feels normal as it doesn’t have a distinguish difference from earlier charms.

Prize G (20 pieces)

Design: 13

Distribution: Top 7 characters 2 pieces each. Bottom 6 characters 1 piece each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

These totally explains the rationale behind the more expensive ticket cost! The mini figures are totally awesome and they feature the main characters as well as all the 9 pillars! Wow looks great to collect. Plus you have a higher chance to pull a mini figure than any of the other prizes!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

If you didn’t manage to pull Giyu, you can aim for the buy out! This variant looks as good as Prize C! The only difference is the background color which doesn’t make much difference! You can look out for a 8- buyout with at least 1 mini figure, or 16- with at least 4 mini figures.

Conclusion

I now get why this set is so popular, from the small prize to the minis to the big prize, it’s all appealing and you can be sure that you won’t go home unhappy if you play this Kuji! The amount of effort they made to make sure that you don’t end up sad is there and I hope every other Kuji is as good as this one.

Recommendation

12 tickets for a chance at a top prize and you will get several mini figures along with it too.

Collectibles? :The Layer scape looks good but they don’t have all the main characters, so probably won’t look well with the other figures from previous set, so do keep them because you like that character and not for any potential value. The mini figures is worth keeping, do look out for all 13 of them, I believe most of them won’t be release again.
