Wow back to back month for Demon Slayer, how rare is that! Hope that’s a good thing to promote the upcoming season for Demon Slayer! Well from the poster we already can see a new character is featured for the series, so let’s get down to the prizes!~

Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 6th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Of course it’s another Tanjiro, he is the main character after all so no doubt that he is kicking things off. The figures in this set are so awesome! Not only do they have the base as well as the effect part, they also feature the name tag at the side. Definitely won’t regret pulling this.

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Rengoku is back and the figure is consistent to Tanjiro’s where everything Tanjiro has, Rengoku has it as well! There’s 2 of each figure in this set so quite lucky that there are no rare pieces out here, you know those kind of stuff that makes collection exceptionally hard, so thankful to Bandai for that.

Prize C (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Wow, it’s sure a surprise to see someone debut in a Kuji series! Azaka makes his Demon Slayer Kuji first appearance as a top prize! This is a great figure, although it doesn’t have the consistency as the other 2, but he doesn’t hold a sword so you can’t expect the same thing, aside from that, the base, effect and name tag is there, so great overall.

Prize D (2 pieces)

Figure Line: Layer Scape

Top Prize Appearance: 6th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Nezuko looks adorable here. She is a little different, she does not appear to be in a fighting mode hence no effect parts but her base is different and she still has her name tag, so overall it’s still a great figure. I mean come on, it’s Nezuko, are you going to say you won’t be happy pulling this figure?

Prize E (20 pieces)

Design: 11

Distribution: Innosuke and Enmu 1 piece each. The other 9 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is the first time bottles appeared in the Demon Slayer Kuji series. They are fairly decent, 350ml so you can bring it to hiking or camping or whichever that suits you. You can display it as well since they look nice, it’s simple design by pasting characters onto the bottle but the way they design the logos and the characters feels like they actually made effort here.

Prize F (20 piece)

Design: 10

Distribution: Rengoku, Pillars 3 pieces each. Black/Yellow and Blue design 1 piece each. 6 others 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I usually don’t like towels for the simplest reason, they feel cheap and it feels like they are always being forced down our throat. However, this is a different case here, the design all feel amazing, the characters look really good and the others looks like effort was made into designing them, towels are also bigger, so not that bad this time round.

Prize G (32 pieces)

Design: 23

Distribution: 9 x 2 pieces each (Tanjiro, Nezuko, Innosuke, Zenitsu, Rengoku, Shinobu, Giyu, Sabito and Kanao). 14 x 1 piece each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The charm looks so cute! They are not ordinary charm, the head of the characters are 3D! How cool is that! The effort to make them good is really there and I am really impressed by Bandai! Now I don’t think you will feel bad for pulling anything!

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Rengoku looks great and the difference between this and Prize B is the fire effect part is opaque. Looks great, depending on your preference, if you like this more than you have to wait for a good number to buy out. You can also hope for double chance if you don’t’ want to buyout. A 8- or 15- with 1 other figures is a good buyout.

Conclusion

So another Demon Slayer set in consecutive month might seem a bit overkill but the prizes here differs from the previous one and it makes it look like a totally different theme and makes buyer want to invest into this as well!

Recommendation

10 tickets for a chance at a top prize and even if you don’t pull one, the small prizes don’t feel so bad.

Collectibles? : Tanjiro, Rengoku and Akaza are really worth collecting given their figures look so gorgeous. However, if you are selective, Akaza would be the one to lookout for since it’s a debut piece.
