1. Gojo Satoru: 11/10

Because, let's be real, he's not just a character; he's an experience.

Gojo Satoru isn't just a man; he's a vibe, a way of life, the personification of "too cool for school" who... actually works at a school. Imagine walking into class, and there's this teacher whose mere presence makes the air-conditioner feel inadequate. His eyes are like portals to a dimension where everything is just a bit better, except for the curses, who definitely don't have a good time there. The man wraps himself in limitless energy like it's the latest fashion trend, and honestly, he's setting standards so high, the fashion industry should be taking notes.

My anime husband of a few years now, Gojo doesn't play by the rules - he sees the rulebook, winks at it with his stunningly beautiful eyes, and then proceeds to rewrite it with a flourish. His teaching methods? Unconventional. His power level? Immeasurable. His ability to turn a dire situation into a teaching moment with the same ease as flipping a pancake? Unmatched. Gojo turns every fight into a spectacle, where he's both the magician and the magic trick, dazzling us mere mortals with his brilliance. In a world filled with curses, he's the blessing we didn't know we needed, teaching lessons in both jujutsu and jaw-dropping awesomeness. Absolute perfection, indeed.

Fun fact: the term for “daddy” in Japanese is actually Gojo Satoru (it isn't).
