Everything is normal for this set, and there are 2 batches for this Kuji so if you miss the first batch there’s a chance we are getting a second batch.

Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 7th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Of course we are getting Tanjiro once again, the breath of fire effect does feels different and looks great on him. This is the first of his figure with Fire effect, so even if you pull him it’s not that bad.

Prize B (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Enmu even with no effect parts looks gorgeous here and always welcoming to see new character. Again, why are the rare characters that debut only have 1 piece, doesn’t make much sense.

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 7th, first as Little Nezuko!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Nezuko looks super adorable here! Even without any effect parts she still looks like an attractive figure. Plus it’s a rare piece and also different from her previous figure so definitely have value.

Prize D (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: 4th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Rengoku looks great as well with the fire effect that act as a base which looks super cool and he also has the scarred face, so not the same as the previous figure. Definitely a top tier figurine.

A great figure to be featured in double chance too.

Prize E (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Akaza is back again and this time round he has a different pose and FYI all the figures come with a round base just not shown in the pic. They all look great, at least better than the previous set.

Prize F (12 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 2 pieces each. Blind Box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The mini figures are back and this time round features 3 new characters (Akaza, Enmu, Mystery) and possibly ! The other characters have different expression from their previous set so not repetitive as well. Very cute and definitely not going to disappoint you if you pulled this.

Leave me a comment if you are curious who is the mystery figure!

Prize G (8 pieces)

Design: 4

Distribution: 4 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The cups does look cute as well, each color has 2 characters apart. Quality is good, colors felt a bit too simple, but it’s not a common prize so you won’t feel too bad for pulling multiple of these.

Prize H (32 pieces)

Design: 15

Distribution: 2 x 3 pieces each. 13 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Charms are not usually the favorite small prizes but Demon Slayer just makes them look so cute and you would want to collect them all! All characters are unique each with a very special background. The main 4 dressed up as animals felt special and the others have their distinct background.

Prize I (20 pieces)

Design: 9

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The mask cover looks great here! They have designs on both sides and it’s a very useful prize to store your mask, even if you don’t want to use them they look great as a display piece. Characters featured wise could have more variety since Rengoku appeared twice.

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

In any case if you did not manage to pull prize D you can consider the last prize which is an opaque effect part and looks as good, also it’s a figure so nothing bad about it. Rengoku is a popular enough character that may trigger a buyout. If you want to get this, look for a 8- buyout or 15- with at least 1 figure and 1 mini figure inside.

Conclusion

Compared to the previous set, this feels so much better. A lot of good figures and unique small prizes like the mask cover and cups and also mini figures makes the set looks better. Feels so much better compared to the last set especially the top figures.

Recommendation

10 tickets for a chance for at least 1 big figure and hopefully at least one mini figures too.

Collectibles? : Enmu is a good character to keep since he is a debut and a rare figure. Little Nezuko looks cute to keep too. The others is based on your own likings towards them. The mini figures good to keep especially the 3 debut piece. As for the rest it’s up to your own budget and interest to keep the collection.
