Ichiban Kuji: Selectable prizes for non-blinds small prizes. Double chance included if your country carries this Kuji.
Series Sequel: 7th Jujutsu Kaisen Kuji, first in 2023!
I am so excited to see another Jujutsu Kaisen set and the previous few sets was related to the movies so this is the one that solely focus on the main series. The prizes for the past few sets has been a bit disappointing, here is to hope that we have better prizes moving forward, let’s check it out!

Prize A (4 pieces)
To kick things off, we don’t have a figure but an illustration board instead. The art looks good with all the main characters inside, it is A3 in size so very big. The issue with this is that a prize that can easily be a small prize is now fitted into the top prize section and replacing potential figures. That does not sit too well for me. I mean feels like we are being shortchanged one way or another, anyhow, there are 4 of these to go around but I think everyone would prefer a figure over this any given day.
Prize B (1 piece)
Top Prize Appearance: Debut
Oh yes we we have a figure, a debuting character as well in Maki! She looks great with her weapon and she fits perfectly well with your past figures so if you want to get all the main characters in the series, she is the figure to look out for! Sadly there’s only 1 piece of her in a set, so do ensure that the figure is still there before playing! Figure stands at 18cm tall.
Prize C (2 pieces)
Top Prize Appearance: Debut
What makes a debuting character better? Having 2 debuting characters! Inumaki makes his debut here and he looks great as well, Jujutsu Kaisen figures are nice in general and they all look look great when place together! His figure is 17cm tall and luckily 2 pieces to go around, so if you are collecting do aim for him as well!
Prize D (1 piece)
Top Prize Appearance: 2nd Reissue
Gojo is also up for grab but this figure has been issued before, it last appeared in Jujutsu Kaisen the Second set and Gojo was the one with 3 pieces in a set, so I am not sure why are they releasing this one again. Anyway it is a figure nevertheless and if you pull it no harm trading it away or sell it. Figure is nice, it has the alternate head and stands at 21cm tall.
Prize E (18 pieces)
Distribution: 2 x 3 pieces each. 6 x 2 pieces each.
Next we move into small prizes and we have acrylic stand to choose from. The design are all nice and the pose are adapted from the anime instead of the movie and we have the main 3 year one students back again. The acrylic stand varies from 8cm to 11cm in height, but do choose your favorite instead of the size and if you plan to complete it, pick the rarer or popular ones first! I suggest taking Gojo first.
Prize F (24 pieces)
Distribution: 8 x 3 pieces each.
Next are illustration boards and they look great here. We have the characters from the acrylic stand design, exactly the same pose but on an illustration board instead. Each of them has a distinct color as well. Oh yes it’s A3 in size as well so totally not a bad prize! The irony is that the A and small prize are the same size, just saying.
Prize G (30 pieces)
Distribution: 10 x 3 pieces each. Blind Box.
Lastly we have acrylic charms and the characters are adorable as they are from the Chokonokko series. We have the main characters as well as the 2 villains so generally quite a nice line up. The fact it’s an acrylic instead of rubber makes it better.
Last Prize / Double Chance
If you are unable to pull Inumaki or if you like the alternate head variant, you can go for a buyout instead! Anyway it’s a little annoying that they could have given us an alternate head but they chose to make 2 variants instead. Anyway if you want to buyout, do look for a 6- buyout or 15- with at least Maki inside.
You can win this via double chance as well so don’t lose hope if you didn’t pull it initially!
Illustration Board are not really the kind of big prizes that one would have expected to constitute to half the big prizes in the set. A reissue figure doesn’t help but luckily we have 2 debuting characters to save this set from becoming less appealing.
Quite decent and standard small prizes, appealing in general.
Luckily it’s an Inumaki figure instead of another illustration board.
Variety of Prize
With only 7 different prizes and 30 different designs overall feels lesser variety than usual, but still not that bad.
Odds of big prizes
Value for Money
I will say if you are okay to get the acrylic stand or illustration board then the ticket value will be alright for you.
Again, Inumaki and Maki saves this set from being a mediocre one and the acrylic stand and the other small prizes appeal are good enough to make the set ideal to play.
Let’s calculate your odds to get the following with one ticket from a fresh board!
Chance to get a top prize (A to D): 8 / 80 = 10%, average
Chance to get a figure prize (B to D): 4 / 80 = 5%, lower than average
3 tickets for a chance at the figure.
The Real Deal: Inumaki and Maki are definitely the drawing point for the set, if you want to keep all the main characters figure these are the 2 that you need to look out for!
Nice to have: The illustration board (Prize A) is nice, just not suitable to hang around the big prize corner, but it’s a prize worth pulling and displaying! The acrylic stands are a nice bunch to collect all 8 as well, they are not blinded so no issue in collecting all!
Collect only if you don’t already have: Gojo is literally a reissue figure, so only get him if you don’t have this version!
Skippable: The Illustration Board (Prize F) and charms are nice but not for collection sake as they don’t have the value or are hard to collect respectively. Don’t spend too much time collecting them, just get your favorite design!
