On December 4, 2020, Jujutsu Kaisen HBO Max streaming will begin. Warner Media announced the anime would become part of the streaming service as part of the established Crunchyroll collection. The anime series is currently running in Japan, with eight episodes available on Crunchyroll. The original Japanese voice acting and English dubs are available.

Jujutsu Kaisen follows Yuji Itadori who’s part of his high school’s occult club. This probably wasn’t the best idea, because the group unleashed something evil through the Double-Faced Specter’s finger. Yuji eats the finger to save his friends, unwittingly becoming one with the Curse. To keep from being immediately killed by sorcerers, he’s joins the Tokyo Metropolitan Technical High School of Sorcery. The first season of the show will consist of 24 episodes.

In addition to the anime being available in English, people can read the manga too. Viz Media picked it up. While there are 14 volumes so far in Japan, as of November 2020, the English translation’s seventh volume will release on December 1, 2020. There are no video game adaptations of the series available just yet.

As for the Crunchyroll Collection itself, there are generally over 20 shows available on HBO Max. None of these shows are exclusive to that service, as they are all animes already available on Crunchyroll. Some of the notable shows on the service right now include Berserk, Blue Exorcist, Bungo Stray Dogs, Death Note, Food Wars: Shokugeko no Soma, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Hunter x Hunter, Inuyasha, Kill la Kill, Konosuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World, Mob Psycho 100, The promised Neverland, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and Re:Zero Starting Life in Another World.

The Jujutsu Kaisen HBO Max debut is set for December 4, 2020.
