Jirou (ジロ, Jiro) is a character who appears only in the manga version of the first part of the Spirit Detective saga and is omitted from the anime.


During his time as a ghost, Yusuke Urameshi encounters Jirou, a dog whose owner is a kid named Shouta. He really cares about his owner Shouta. However, he is an elderly dog, who dies of natural causes. When he died, he continued to linger around the Shouta's house out of worry about what Shouta would do without him. With Yusuke Urameshi's help, they successfully help get Shouta to move forward, get past Jirou's death and become a stronger person. This makes Jirou feel content as he passes into heaven.
