Kiteretsu Encyclopedia (キテレツ大百科 Kiteretsu Daihyakka ?) is a science fiction manga series by Fujiko Fujio which ran in the children's magazine Kodomo no Hikari from April 1974 through July 1977. The manga was later made into a 331-episode TV anime series which ran on Fuji TV from March 27, 1988 through June 9, 1996.

There are many similarities in the makeup and appearance of the main cast to the cast of Doraemon, which was also created by Fujio, though the content of the story is completely different.

The main character is a scientific genius boy named Kiteretsu, who has built a companion robot named Korosuke. He frequently travels in time with his friends and Korosuke in the time machine he built. Miyoko is a girl in his neighborhood who is basically his girlfriend. Tongari is his rival, who happen to share some similar traits of Honekawa Suneo. Buta Gorilla (Kumada Kaoru) is a typical neighborhood bully, who also share similar traits of Gian (Takeshi Goda) except that he often antagonizes Korosuke. (though they are in grade school).

Setting

The show is set in the fictional Hyōno-chō, which is set in an ambiguous location featuring a rural-style train station, a department store, and a shopping district. Due to the Seibu Railway-style electric railway which appears in the series, it has been speculated that the series is set somewhere in the Musashino area of Tokyo. The fictional neighboring town of Urano-chō is where Miyoko's aunt lives. In the anime, Miyoko speaks in the dialect attributed to that town.

The fictional Hyakujōshima, thought to be modeled after the real Hachijojima, is the location of the Togari family's vacation home. A family of kabocha farmers lives there and takes care of the place. The island is sparsely populated due to people moving away, and it is accessible from Tokyo via airplane and ferry.

Two fictional schools are mentioned in the series: Hyōno Elementary and Takao University. Hyōno Elementary is the public school Kiteretsu and his friends attend. During summer vacation, one of the lunch ladies uses the school to teach piano lessons. There is also a rumor the school is haunted.

It is unknown if Takao University is a private, national, or public university. Benzō-san was able to enter the university after attempting it six times during the series. Ten years from the time period of the series beginning, Kiteretsu, Miyoko, and Tongari enter this university to study. The university was likely modeled after either Tokyo Metropolitan University or Chuo University.

Other locations in the series are actual locations, though some things may have been fictionalized to meet the story's needs.
