Ichiban Kuji Jujutsu Kaisen Zero

Retail Price: 680 Yen

Total Tickets: 80

Released Date: 15 Jan 2022

Ichiban Kuji: Selectable prizes for non-blinds small prizes. Double chance included if your country carries this Kuji.

Series Sequel: 4th Jujutsu Kaisen Kuji, first in 2022

So instead of calling this Jujutsu Kaisen the forth, it’s the zero as this is the prelude before the main 3 characters joined them. So you won’t be seeing any of them but let’s see who we have here.

Prize A (1 piece)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

We have an A2 size tapestry to kick things off. Probably quite underwhelm for most people as it’s not a figure, but then again it’s a good art and can be kept if you don’t want to display it. Also rare piece in the set, so nothing bad for pulling.

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

So moving along we have large Acrylic stand. This is 20cm tall so it’s quite a big prize. As you can tell each Jujutsu Kaisen set has different top prizes, this happens to be large Acrylic stand. Yuta is the main character of the prelude so he’s getting 2 pieces in a set.

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Maki usually don’t get featured because she isn’t the main character but great to see her being featured as a top prize, I believe a figure would have make this set much more appealing.

Prize D (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Like Maki, Toge also don’t get featured that much for an underrated character. Would love to see him featured in a figure soon.

Prize E (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Panda is the largest Acrylic Stand amongst them all and also one of the mascot for the anime so nothing bad getting him.

Prize F (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Of course Gojo is getting the most prizes in the set. I believe most people would want to pull him.

Prize G (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Geto is the villain being featured here and he looks great, and again, like to sound out that a figure for all of them would have been great.

Nothing bad about Acrylic stand, just doesn’t feel that much of an appeal for a top prize.

Prize H (16 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 4 x 3 pieces each. 2 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Normally I wouldn’t have rated Acrylic stand that low as they are not a bad small prize, but the issue here is the repeats of the design. Basically they are just smaller versions of the top prizes, which kind of feels underwhelm for this prize. They could at least change their pose or something.

Prize I (18 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 3 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The Folder set is not too bad normally but again, the designs are the same for each character, like you can sense some laziness in the design team. They do give you 2 pieces of folder in a prize but both have the same character design just different background and character size.

Prize J (24 pieces)

Design: 8

Distribution: 8 x 3 pieces each. Blind box

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Wow so lucky that the charms are not the same design as the other prizes. They do look cute here but it feels too normal for a charm given that they did better designs before.

Prize K (12 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 6 x 2 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

If there’s anything good to take away from this set, it would be these mini figures. 4 of the characters appeared before in the previous sets but all have different looks. Geto and Yuta debuts here. Definitely great to get your hands on these.

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The art does look good for the acrylic board but again, it’s not a figure so some might not be buyout just for these. If you really want it, you can look for a 7- buyout.

Double Chance Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I am very surprised to see that the double chance prize is a different one from the prizes that you could have pulled. It’s a simple Yuta tapestry but at least it’s different so you will be happier when you won the double chance.

Overall: C

Conclusion

The issue with this set is not just the lack of figurines, if the small prizes are good at least it balances out, but the acrylic stands (both big and small) and folder have the same design, feels like we are getting similar things. Though I need to give them credits for giving a different prize for their double chance.

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the big Acrylic stand or a mini figure at least.

Collectibles? : The mini figures are good to keep, that’s about it, the Acrylic stand can be replaced with the older ones, or maybe just get Geto and Yuta to add in the variety of characters.
