5. Awasaka

You're enjoying a thrilling episode of the Shibuya Incident arc, rooting for your favorite curse-fighting heroes, when in struts Awasaka, like he owns the place. This minor antagonist might not be the big boss at the end of the video game, but he sure plays his role in stirring up trouble.

Awasaka's claim to fame? He's a Grade 1 sorcerer turned baddie, wielding an arsenal of cursed tools that would make any hardware store envious. But it's not his choice of weaponry that gets under the skin of fans; it's his knack for popping up at the worst possible times, throwing wrenches into the plans of our beloved characters. He's like that one uninvited guest at a party who not only crashes but also dips his hands into the punch bowl. Utterly despicable.

But let's dive a bit deeper, shall we? Awasaka's dislikeability isn't just about his interference. No, it's about how he embodies the frustrating obstacle that doesn't seem to add much to the story other than being a thorn in the side. Every story needs its villains, sure, but Awasaka feels like that level in a video game you wish you could just skip. Not because it's challenging in a good way, but because it's just annoyingly there, blocking the path with no real charm or intrigue. Fans of Jujutsu Kaisen are there for the thrilling battles, the complex characters, and the deep lore. So, when Awasaka shows up with his "I'm going to mess things up because I can" attitude, it's no wonder he earns a spot on the list of least-liked characters.

He's like a puzzle piece that doesn't quite fit, making you question why it's even in the box.
