Crunchyroll has announced that the anime “Jujutsu Kaisen” will head to the platform exclusively as part of Crunchyroll’s upcoming anime season this October.

Animation studio MAPPA will animate the series with Sunghoo Park leading the show’s direction. MAPPA and Park also recently teamed up for Crunchyroll Original series “The God of High School.” The series will be available to the anime community worldwide, outside of Asia.

“Crunchyroll has a community of more than 70 million registered users with more than 40 million followers across social, so we’re deeply connected to the stories and genres we know will resonate with our fans,” says John Leonhardt, consumer products head, Crunchyroll. “The upcoming series ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ is an action-packed horror adventure and is available for license across categories. We know the global anime community will be so excited to enjoy a range of consumer products to celebrate their love for this series.”

Along with the streaming debut, “Jujutsu Kaisen” is now available for license across all categories, worldwide outside of Asia. The series is based on the manga, “Jujutsu Kaisen,” which launched in 2018. As of June 2020, more than 6.5 million copies of the manga series are currently in circulation.

This is the latest in the slate of deals announced by Crunchyroll, having previously announced a streaming partnership with HBO Max, a capsule collection with The French Football Federation and a global subscription box deal with Loot Crate.
