Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: 4th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Tengen has only appear as a top prize recently, so expect to see him more often as he takes on the Sensei role for Tanjiro and gang. The figure here is Layer Scape, so it comes with the background stand which looks awesome! If you have been collecting the Layer Scape figure, you wouldn’t want to miss this set! Overall stands at 18.5cm tall, similar size to other Layer Scape figures!

You can also hope to win this via double chance!

Prize B (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I am not sure why Kanao is getting a special treatment with 3 pieces in the set, but nevertheless, it’s a nice looking figure and he does fit in well with the others! Figure is also Layer Scape and overall stands at 19.5cm. If you are collecting the past 6 figures, you will want to get all the figures in this set as well!

Prize C (1 piece)

Top Prize Appearance: 4th

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

For one of the main character, Innosuke isn’t appearing as often as he should! He is the final piece you need to complete your Layer Scape figure collection and his figure comes with his Boar Mask as well. What I feel is wrong is that there are only 1 piece of Innosuke to go around, which means this is the popular piece that everyone would want to get their hands on! So do lookout for it’s availability before playing! Overall stands at 19cm.

Prize D (8 pieces)

Design: 3

Distribution: 2 x 3 pieces each. 1 x 2 piece. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The Chokonokko mini figures are back! Demon Slayer has previous line up of a lot of mini figures, Shinobu appears once again but with a different expression. Zenitsu is tangled in web and we feature on of the Demon Slayer corps member being trap in web and it’s special lying down figure! All of them look great though and it’s not as easy to pull the mini figures this time round, so you will really be glad if you pull this!

Prize E (19 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 9 x 2 pieces each. 1 x 1 piece.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Normally I am not a fan of towels, I know I said thousands of times, but this time round the designs are not bad! We have a series of character art and also some logo art for the design. Generally the appeal is there and feels like they made effort into designing this! Will much rather not get towels but at least they make it look nice so we don’t feel that bad for pulling it!

Prize F (17 pieces)

Design: 13

Distribution: 4 x 2 pieces each. 9 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The previous set we have Chokonokko design for the rubber charm, this set we have Chokonokko design for Acrylic charm! The characters look adorable, each one of them have an expression different from previous design and some of them are even new characters featured as charm designs! Not blinded, so feel free to choose your favorite and if you don’t feel like using them as a charm, they can act as acrylic stand as well!

Prize G (30 pieces)

Design: 16

Distribution: 14 x 2 pieces each. 2 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Lastly we have rubber charm, normally I think putting too many charms will feel repetitive but the rubber charm is totally different from the acrylic charm above! The design for one is different, each design feature a unique character along with their catch phrase, they look so adorable too so I don’t think you will feel bad for pulling any of them!

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

For those who didn’t manage to pull Prize A Tengen, you can go for a buyout! The figure is basically the same just the background is different, so you can use this variant instead! Or if you are hardcore enough, get both!! You can look for a 7- buyout or 14- with at least one other figures and hopefully at least 1 mini figure left!

Conclusion

Another above average set for Demon Slayer! It is partially thanks to the Layer Scape being a collectible items as well as the small prizes being amazingly cute. Hope we have more resolution set and we get more Layer Scape characters too! 9 is not enough! Also hope we have more variety of mini figures like we used to in the past 2 Resolution set!

Odds

Let’s calculate your odds to get the following with one ticket from a fresh board!

Chance to get a top prize (A to E): 6 / 80 = 7.5%, slightly lower than average

Chance to get a figure prize (A to D): 14 / 80 = 17.5%, slightly higher than average

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at the figures or lookout for a buyout with C inside and hopefully some Mini Figures too!

Collectibles?

The Real Deal: All 3 characters in the top prize are essential for your Layer Scape Figure collection! Innosuke is harder to pull, but you will need him for your collection so do try to budget for that. Tengen and Kanao is relatively easier but still important to the set, I think in the future all the Layer Scape characters will not be repeated so do get the 3 of them when you can! The Demon Slayer Corps mini figure is also a good add on to your collection, he is new to the series and it’s a different posture figure, so good to keep it!

Nice to have: If your budget allow, I would suggest you to collect the nice acrylic and rubber charm! Having all of the design would look good and there are a lot of them to collect for you to showcase your collection! Zenitsu mini figure is also a good one to get if you are able to, I don’t think similar figure (with webbed) will be released so do get it if you can.

Collect only if you don’t already have: Shinobu mini figure has appeared before, so no need to collect another one unless you are her fan or you don’t have her previous release, but if you pull it, no harm keeping it!

Skippable: The towels are nice, but not essential for collection, but if you appreciate the art, feel free to keep it!
