3. Megumi Fushiguro: 8.5/10

Megumi Fushiguro, the man who makes "stoic" look like an extreme sport, lands an 8.5/10 because he essentially combines the allure of a dark, brooding YA novel protagonist with the combat skills of a top-tier sorcerer. This guy has more shadowy creatures at his beck and call than the average person has in their entire Crunchyroll history. His ability to summon divine dogs, toads, and even more eldritch creatures from the shadows not only gives him major cool points but also makes you wonder if he’s secretly running a supernatural petting zoo. The half-point deduction? Purely because his constant brooding makes you want to throw a comedy special his way and say, “Lighten up, the world’s not ending - oh, wait, in Jujutsu Kaisen, it kind of is.”

But let’s not forget the loyalty factor. Megumi’s devotion to his friends and his sense of justice is so strong, it could probably be weaponized. This is a guy who’d walk into the heart of darkness with nothing but a flashlight and a frown, ready to throw down for the people he cares about. His backstory, shrouded in mystery and sprinkled with tragedy, has more layers than an onion wearing a parka. Every reveal about his past or his powers is like finding out your quiet, introverted friend is actually a secret agent or an underground rock star by night. Megumi Fushiguro: because who needs sunshine and rainbows when you can have shadows and sacred beasts?
