The Birth of Kitarō (鬼太郎の誕生, Kitarō no Tanjō) is a GeGeGe no Kitarō story that was first published as a chapter of the original rental manga. In the rental manga it was published as two chapters, Ghost Family (幽霊一家, Yūrei Ikka) and Ghost Family: Graveyard Kitarō (幽霊一家 墓場鬼太郎, Yūrei Ikka: Hakaba Kitarō), under the series title Yōki-Den (妖奇伝, Creepy Stories). It serves as the starting point for the GeGeGe no Kitarō franchise. Shigeru Mizuki remade it for the Garo run of the manga, and subsequently remade the Garo version for the Shonen Magazine run, altering it slightly to better tie-in with the more kid-friendly direction the manga was beginning to take at the time.
