Yorknew City (1999)

Yorknew City (ヨークシンシティ Yōkushin Shiti) is a metropolis on the Yorbian continent. The city annually holds various auctions from the 1st to the 10th of September, including the world's largest auction, the Southernpiece Auction, in which the world's rarest and most valuable items are gathered in one place and put up for auction.

Aside from thousands of lawful auction houses, Yorknew is also famous for its black market auctions which mostly deal with illegal items. The Mafia's underground auction takes place here every year, in the Cemetery Building.

During the 10 days of the auctions, tens of trillions of Jenny are exchanged in the official auctions alone. Yorknew's auctions are where one's dreams can come true--an item bought for J10,000 can be sold for J100,000,000 the next day.

TriviaEdit

  • The Japanese name of the city is a pun on the name of New York because in Japanese the word new (新) is also pronounced shin.
  • In the 1999 anime adaptation, real-life aerial photos of New York were reversed and used to describe Yorknew. Famous buildings and structures such as the Empire State Building, the World Trade Center, the Manhattan Bridge and Madison Square Garden can be found easily[1].
