7. Hanami

You're walking into a garden, expecting to see beautiful flowers but instead finding a giant, walking tree that wants to smack you with its branches. That's Hanami for you, one of the special grade curses from Jujutsu Kaisen, who's about as friendly as a cactus on a hot day.

Hanami isn't just your average, run-of-the-mill garden variety villain - this entity is a force of nature with a deep-seated grudge against humanity, believing that the natural world would be better off without us pesky humans. With powers that make Poison Ivy look like a beginner gardener, Hanami can manipulate plants, grow them at will, and even use them as weapons. This makes Hanami a formidable foe for our beloved sorcerers, turning every encounter into a thorny situation.

But why do fans love to hate this leafy menace? First off, Hanami crashes the party uninvited, disrupting the Kyoto Goodwill Event, which is a big no-no in the world of sorcerer social etiquette. Imagine gearing up for a friendly sports day with your rivals, only to have it ruined by an overgrown bouquet with an attitude. Then, there's the sheer havoc Hanami wreaks, especially in Shibuya, forcing our favorite characters into some of the most intense battles of the series. Fans are glued to their screens, clutching their snacks like lifelines as they watch Hanami toss our heroes around like ragdolls with unsettling ease. It's this combination of Hanami's destructive nature, disregard for human life, and ability to push our heroes to their limits that plants the seed of dislike among fans.

Yet, like any well-fertilized villain, this disdain only makes Hanami's presence in Jujutsu Kaisen all the more captivating, sprouting intrigue and compelling storytelling.
