HBO MAX Will Launch With Some of Crunchyroll's Anime Catalog

Hunter x hunterViz Media

HBO MAX is coming, and it’s confusing. But if you’re a fan of the surprisingly extensive selection of anime shows on streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, a new announcement might catch your eye. Warner Media is in partnership with popular animation streaming service Crunchyroll to bring some of his most popular shows to HBO MAX.

It’s not a total license agreement – there are only 17 shows that jump on it, and for the most part, just one or two seasons. Still, it’s a win-win for both parties: HBO MAX will get a little more content to make it even more competitive in a small field, and Crunchyroll (still a rare independent player in space) will get more exposure of millions of new HBO customers.

Here is the list of Crunchyroll licensed titles launched with HBO MAX on May 27:

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Re: ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- (Director’s Cut)
In / Specter
Keep your hands away Eizouken
Rurouni Kenshin
KONOSUBA – Blessing of God on this wonderful world!
Bungo Stray Dogs
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
Kill the kill
Your lie in April
Schwarzes Marken
91 days
New Devil’s Sister Will
Rokka – Braves of the six flowers

Hunter X Hunter and Death Note, both extremely popular with Western audiences, will also be available sometime after the service’s initial launch.
