The January issue of LEED Publishing's Comic Ran Twins magazine published an all-new special one-shot chapter of the GeGeGe no Kitarō manga titled "Kessen Atagosan" (Decisive Battle on Mt. Atago) on Thursday. The chapter is set in the third year of the Tenna period (1683 CE), with Kitaro and his companions uncovering the mysteries of the Edo yōkai. Mizuki Production is credited with the 32-page chapter.

The December issue of Comic Ran Twins on November 13 had teased the chapter, but did not specify at the time if the chapter would be new or a reprint of an old chapter.
The late Shigeru Mizuki's supernatural manga Kitaro (GeGeGe no Kitarō) began in 1959 under the name Hakaba Kitarō. The stories center on an inhuman boy who straddles the line between the human and supernatural worlds.
