Demon Slayer recently has another new season for the anime, so it’s fitting for us to receive another Kuji set! So this set we have new characters and hopefully awesome small prizes to go along with it! So without further ado, let’s dive into the prizes!

For past Kuji prizes, do vist Demon Slayer Ichiban Kuji Prize Index List

Prize A (2 pieces) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: Debut

Prize Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Yes! We finally have a Mitsuri figure and not just any other figure, we have a Masterlise figure! Masterlise figures are bulky and usually heavy, but most importantly, expect great quality out of it! Mitsuri stands at 23.5cm tall an she definitely is one of the main attraction for the set! I mean she is the Waifu for the series, so naturally most of us will be attracted to her. She looks great nevertheless, and so glad that there are 2 pieces of this to go around, definitely one of the better figures for the series!

Luckily, this is also a double chance figure! So if you are unable to pull it, don’t worry, try your double chance! Who knows you might just win one!

Prize B (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Debut!

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

So not only do we have one, but we have 2 Hashira in the set! Muichiro also makes his debut here and fortunately he is also a Masterlise figure! He looks great as well, as calm as he is in the series. He stands at 22cm tall, and if you are collecting the Masterlise or the Hashira Masterlise figures, you definitely need him! Again glad that we have 2 of his figure so more of us are able to get each of the featured Hashira in this set!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: Mitsuri 2nd, Nezuko 9th (Little Nezuko 2nd)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Next figure in line, it’s not a Masterlise, but it’s a double figure! This is a standard Kuji figure featuring Mitsuri and Little Nezuko! This stands at 9cm tall, but it’s because both of them are not standing, anyway for 1 prize you get 2 figures so I think the value is definitely there! You don’t need to collect this, but if you pull it, why not! 2 to go around also, wow this set is really on fire!

Prize D (2 pieces)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

So no more figures in the top prize, instead we have Bowl. This is your standard ceramic Bowl, it definitely is worth your ticket cost if you pull it, but again we are shortchanged of 2 figures in exchange of this. I shall not complain too much as we have 2 Masterlise in this set. The bowel is alright, it’s 15cm in diameter and can use for your standard rice bowl. The design featured the Demon Slayer logo, both inside and outside the bowl so pretty decent and it’s a usable prize, so not too shabby.

Prize E (20 pieces)

Design: 14

Distribution: 6 x 2 pieces each. 8 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

We move onto the small prize list and we have towels. I think towels are just alright but one thing I applaud them is that they actually have all the main characters and Hashira in the design! So if you happen to play a lot of tickets you can choose and possibly complete a set. It’s a nice design, I will give it to them. Just maybe not the best towel to use as it is a design towel, so not for your daily usage. Also glad that they are not flooding the entire set with towels!

Prize F (26 pieces)

Design: 10

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

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Next we have charm, but not rubber charm, we have acrylic charms! They charms look fantastic here! We have multiple characters in a design! We have Nezuko/Tanjiro, Tanjir/Rui, The Hashiras, Kanao/Tanjiro, Senjuro/Rengoku, Nezuko/Zenitsu, Akaza/Rengoku, Tengen/Gyutaro, Gyutaro/Daki before they were demons and a mystery design! 2 characters for a design is definitely more appealing in a sense! I do hope there are more designs, I mean no Innosuke, Giyu or Shinobu, but I shall accept it as the characters featured are so adorable!

Prize G (26 pieces)

Design: 15

Distribution: 11 x 2 pieces each. 4 x 1 piece each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Next we have Folder set. I think at this point Folders they can be as unappealing as the towels, unless the design is superb. The characters featured are the main 4 characters (individually and one together) with the Hashiras. Each prize you will have 2 folders, one featuring the character and the other is scenes in the anime featuring the characters, so not bad for the design part, just not the best design they ever came up with.

Last Prize

Prize Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

For those who didn’t get to pull Prize A or win the double chance, you can go for a buyout instead! The Last Prize Mitsuri is similar to Prize A, it is still a Masterlise with same height, just that the expression is different! We have a close mouth expression here! If you don’t mind, the last prize is a good substitution! You can look for a 9- buyout or 15- with at least Prize B inside!


Big Prize

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We have 2 great Masterlise and 1 double figures, although the rice bowl isn’t a figure, it’s still acceptable, but overall we have Masterise so that evens out.

Small Prize

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Standard small prizes, we have some nicer ones and some that are mediocre but not too bad overall.

Last Prize

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Full marks for a Masterlise Mitsuri! ❤

Variety of Prize

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

We have 4 big prizes and 3 small prizes and a series of multiple designs for the small prizes so that we don’t feel that they are too repetitive!

Odds of big prizes

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Standard 8 top prizes in a 80 tickets set.

Value for Money

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

You will get your money worth, with 8 big prizes and small prizes that are not too bad!

Collector’s Value

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

See below for breakdown.

Overall: B+


An above average set thanks to the Masterlise and also for Bandai to not give us a shitty odds for this set! It feels like you are continuing your collection or hobby journey with Bandai as they create new sets, the things that are out are attractive and you don’t feel so much like they are trying to come out a set for the sake of it, I see some improvement compare to the previous set, just hope this goes on!


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 (A to C): 6/ 80 = 7.5%, slight lower than average


3 tickets for a chance at the figures or go for a buyout with B inside!


The Real Deal:

  • Prize A/ Laster Mitsuri Masterlise and Prize B Muichiro Masterlise: These are definitely a must to collect for fans of the Masterlise Demon Slater figures. I don’t think they will come up with another Masterlise Mitsuri and Muichiro so just get these first for your collection!

Nice to have:

  • Prize C Mitsure/Nezuko Figure: Nothing bad to possess a double figure featuring 2 of the cutest character in the set! Anyway this shouldn’t be your priority but no harm getting it if you pull it or have the budget to get it!
  • Prize E Towels/ Prize F Acrylic Folder: Since they are selectable, if you are able to you can consider getting all the designs, anything that has these 14 characters is not too bad to keep, I mean which other series have 14 consistent characters that will be out right, so no harm getting them during your pulls and if you need to fill up the missing pieces, the marketplace sells them fairly cheap.
  • Prize F Acrylic Charm: Solely because they are cute, and there is only 10 designs in the set so it should be fairly easier to get all 10!

Collect only if you don’t already have: NA


  • Prize D Bowl: Nice and usable but it’s a utility item, so don’t need to go your way to collect unless you really want to eat your food in it.
