The Bull Market is a low-end tag auction market in Yorknew City.[1]


The Bull Market acts like a silent auction, with some characteristics of a garage sale and a flea market bazaar.[1]

A bidder has to write the amounts they are willing to pay on the tags attached to the auction items. Whoever writes down the highest bid within the time limit wins, but vendors will often sell before the time is up if they can reach an agreement with the buyers on the price.[1]


Yorknew City arcEdit

Returning to the hotel after purchasing a Southernpiece Auction catalog, Gon, Killua, and Leorio pass through the Bull Market; Leorio explains to the boys the concept of the place. A knife catches Gon's attention and he uses Gyo to examine, noticing the residual aura emanating from it. Recognizing it as a Ben's Knife which is worth at least Jenny Symbol 20115 million, Killua asks Leorio to bargain the immediate purchase of the object with the seller. Then Gon and Killua discover how to use Gyo to find ignored valuable items probably made by geniuses.[1]


  • The name of the place, Bull Market, is not spoken in the manga or in the anime adaptations. It comes from the name written on one of the tents that appear exclusively in the background of a panel in the manga.[1]

Anime and Manga DifferencesEdit

  • In the manga, small plush dolls of Yoshihiro Togashi (self represented as a dog with glasses), his wife Naoko Takeuchi (represented as a bunny), and Hiei from YuYu Hakusho can be found on a stall in the Bull Market.[1] In the 2011 anime series adaptation only a Naoko's bunny doll appears.[2] The 1999 anime version shows none of the mentioned Easter eggs.[3]

Intertextuality and ReferencesEdit
