Wow it’s only just a month ago we had a MHA Kuji, but this time round the figurines are the smaller ones, so not Masterlise, but this also means more characters will be release! So let’s check them out!

Prize A (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 12th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I think it’s common to see Midoriya as our A Prize, he looks decent here, wouldn’t say this is the best of his figure but looks detailed enough with the right arm effect and also the eyes showing his full potential. Probably not on everyone’s lookout list but if you do pull it, nothing bad, it’s a figure after all.

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 12th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Well if Midoriya is very common, then Bakugo is just as common, despite that, this figure looks different, for starter, his outfit differs from previous set and he brings up his mask instead of doing some berserk pose, at least feels unique, but again I know why people wouldn’t want to collect him, still, it’s a good looking figure, wouldn’t say no to it.

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I think Uraraka has better looking figure in the past, but for she doesn’t appear as often so this would be a decent figure to get for collection. I think it would be good if she has some effect part or maybe a different pose or maybe it’s just the face sculpture this time round isn’t as great, but still, no complaints, they could always gave us more A and B :/

Prize D (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Great to see Ida debuting here! He looks absolutely gorgeous with his outfit and also the facial expression along with the glasses looks great. He also holds his helmet which looks fantastic, definitely one of the figures to look out for!

Prize E (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 10th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Shoto is also one of the common figures, but this time round his figure only has the fire effect, which is rare, so it’s unique in a way, but everything else is still pretty similar, nothing bad as well!

Prize F (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Yes, finally, we are getting Asui! It’s been such a long time, she is one of the main characters for some of the arc, so great to see her finally making her debut! Her figure looks awesome, the detail is good, no effect or fancy pose, just a sweet character for collectors!

Prize G (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Kirishima is back again, this time round he’s being featured as a smaller figure, which fits in well with the majority. No fancy pose or effect as well, but somehow he does look better with his attack form, still, it’s a rare character, so no harm getting this!

Prize H (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Last figure, we have Eraser Head, the only teacher in the set, he has a different pose from the previous set as well, and this pose is more common during the school time where he is not fighting any villains, so quite retro in a way. Not a bad figure to collect if you ask me.

Prize I (22 pieces)

Design: 12

Distribution: 10 x 2 pieces each. 2 x 1 piece each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Now we proceed to the small prizes. The illustration board has the same layout as the previous sets, so you can lay them all out together and they would all look great! Most of the characters featured here as also featured as top prizes and we also have the Class 1A and 1B group design, which I think looks perfect!

Prize J (23 pieces)

Design: 11

Distribution: 10 x 2 pieces each. 1 x 3 piece.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Okay, we have to get towels for some reason, it’s like every set has a towel. The design are not bad, all 11 design has appear for Prize I, just that they could have gave better prizes, or you know, better towels that look more attractive, because the standard here looks a but lazy, hope we have some quality next time.

Prize K (24 pieces)

Design: 13

Distribution: 11 x 2 pieces each. 2 x 1 piece each. Blind Box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lastly, we have charms and they looks decent. They have the same layout as previous charms so seems like a continuation from the previous set with exception of some repeated characters like the main 3 boys. Hopefully they will eventualy come out with every single character’s design!

Last Prize / Double Chance

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I believe the recent MHA Kuji likes to make their last prize a shiny version of one of the prizes. This time we have a shiny Bakugo who looks okay, but would have preferred the last to be a rarer character, but still, great figure!

You will be able to win this via double chance!

Overall: B

Conclusion

As expect, this Kuji is good, not the best, but still appealing in it’s way. The small prizes could be improve as always but the top figures look great so nothing bad overall, I am glad most of them are rarer characters.

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a figure or lookout for a good buyout!

Collectibles? : Ida, Asui and Kirishima are figures you would want to keep! As for the rest, you can consider keeping a set (1 of each character) for hardcore collector, or if you don’t have Uraraka or Eraser Head, this would be a good time to get it!
