Bandai Spirits' Kirby Pupupu na Shin-Seikatsu Ichiban Kuji begins!

Bandai Spirits' Kirby Pupupu na Shin-Seikatsu Ichiban Kuji begins today in Japan!


You may be wondering, "What is Ichiban Kuji?" so allow us to explain! Ichiban Kuji is a lottery prize series that is held at participating convenience stores and specialty shops in Japan. The exclusive prizes are typically based on well-known games and anime series. The prizes are ranked by letter, with A prizes being the rarest, while "lower" letters are much more common to win. There is also the Last One Prize, which is the rarest prize available! The Last One Prize is won by purchasing the very last ticket available at a shop. Tickets cost 700円 per pull, and the ticket will have one of the letters from the lineup on it. You win the prize that corresponds to the letter on the ticket you pulled!


With that covered, let's take a look at the entire prize lineup of Kirby Pupupu na Shin-Seikatsu Ichiban Kuji!


The A prize is this super round Kirby plush! The material is so soft and cuddly that you can't help but want to hug it. The soles of his feet are also embroidered with a special design!

The B prize is this UFO Kirby light. Place it on your desk or by your bedside, and turn on the light to recreate UFO Kirby's abilities. The slightly troubled expression on Waddle Dee's face is a key point!

The C prizes are these "Always at your service!" mascot figures. These figures will help you study or work at your desk! Kirby has a magnet in his mouth, so paper clips and other objects stick to him, just like he is sucking them in! Waddle Dee also helps you hold small items on his star plate.

The D prizes are these ceramic mugs featuring Kirby and Waddle Dee's faces etched on them. The generous size makes them perfect for soups as well as regular beverages like coffee and tea!

The E prizes are these modern and retro Kirby-inspired hand towels. The die-cut face towel with snap buttons that can be hung on a towel hanger is the first appearance in the Ichiban Kuji Lottery, and the hand towel lineup is rich in variety with designs of various scenes from Kirby's Adventure to Kirby and the Forgotten Land!

The F prizes are these "Helping Hands Anywhere!" rubber accessories. This convenient rubber selection includes a coaster designed to look like Kirby is sliding to catch a drop of water, a cord holder, and other items from a total of five types!

The G prizes are these stylish stationery items! The pop-up memo that looks like a game stage when you lift it up is appearing for the first time in the Ichiban Kuji Lottery. Check out the clear files and ring notebooks featuring various characters!

The Last One prize is this "Taking a Nap Today as Usual" plushie cushion! You can put your head on the Warp Star cushion and take a nap with Kirby and Elfilin!

I'm really excited for this Ichiban Kuji! I especially love the UFO Kirby light. Which one of these items is your favorite, though? Let us know in the comments below! And as always, as we find stores selling items from this lineup, we will be sure to update you all on Kirby Informer's Twitter!
