Retail Price: 750 Yen

Total Tickets: 66

Released Date: 4 Jun 2022

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

Series Sequel: 4th QQ Kuji, first in 2022!

We have another QQ Kuji, this time round, things are a little different, the price are a bit cheaper for 1 ticket, the total tickets are lesser and you won’t be getting any figures but the prices and ticket format follows a standard plush Kuji, so don’t set your expectations too high since it’s not a figurine Kuji!

Prize A (2 pieces)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

So before anyone says anything, do understand that this Kuji is price and formatted differently, so a B5 acrylic board wouldn’t be one of the bad things, moreover the art is fantastic, it also features someone other than the quintuplets so that’s fresh. I believe if you play this Kuji, you know what you are getting, so as a top prize, this does feels good!

Prize B/C/D/E/F (1 piece each)

Design: 5

Distribution: 5 x 1 piece each. You get what you pull, each character will be indicated in the tickets.

Okay so we are not getting any figures, no big deal, we get a almost life size tapestry for each of the quintuplets! They are 165cm long and easy to keep, and only 1 of each in a set, so nothing bad at all, especially if you are a fanatic about the characters!

Prize G/H/I/J/K (1 piece each)

Design: 5

Distribution: 5 x 1 piece each. You get what you pull, each character will be indicated in the tickets.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we have plush, and they all look great. The Chocokko Plush is one of the better plush in Ichiban Kuji, so great to have a quality plush for the quintuplets. Nothing bad again since there are only 1 of each item in a set and it’s a collectible!

Prize L (10 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 10 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Next we come down to the small prizes, we have book board here, so it’s basically an illustration board that is shaped in a book so you can display it while it stands. Each sister has 2 unique designs and each design is unique in a set, so definitely a decent prize.

Prize M (20 pieces)

Design: 5

Distribution: 5 x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

One thing I feel about the design for this folder sets is that it’s repetitive from the book board, a lot of times they tend to repeat their design, but again if you like a particular one then it’s fine, but if you are going for variety then it can be an issue. Regardless, not a bad prize, each has 2 folders so still worth your money.

Prize N (24 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 4 x 3 piece each. 6 x 2 pieces each. Blind box

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lastly we have the charms, and wow am I surprise to see that we have the supporting characters featured in the designs! That is really cool and hope we will have them being featured as a figure in the future too, they would look great beside the quintuplets!

Last Prize / Double Chance

The design looks the same as the A prize but this a mega pillow, which you know is just your standard sleeping pillow but in a Kuji context, it’s considered a mega prize because of it’s size! Well a sleeping pillow with the Quintuplets as the design won’t be anything bad, so if you want it you need to buy out, preferably a 8- buyout or 14- with at least 1 tapestry!

Conclusion

Well despite how the Kuji looks, it’s actually an above average Kuji! The Tapestry prize is amazing, I mean a life size character piece that is easy to keep is nothing bad for a fan and the other prizes looks okay. Mainly the tickets have reduced to 66 tickets from usual 80 and you have more big prizes, so winning something is easier here.

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the top prize.

Collectibles? : A looks good to keep, the tapestry and plush are not bad to keep too, but they will be hard to get as a set.
