Description

In the far future, war has ravaged the entire Earth, leaving only a barren wasteland called Sand Land where the supply of water is controlled by a greedy king. In search of a long-lost lake, Sheriff Rao and his companions face dragons, bandits, and the deadliest foe of all - the King's Army itself. In Akira Toriyama's newest adventure, Sheriff Rao asks the King of the Demons for his help in finding a way to end the drought. What he gets is the King's son, Beelzebub, his attendant, Thief, and a weird journey through the great desert. After committing "grand theft tank," Rao and the "Demonic Duo" ride their iron chariot toward an inevitable confrontation with evil. Sand Land is sure to quench its readers' thirst for action and laughs.show more

Our customer reviews

This is a oneshot, a stand-alone title and is fairly standard shounen content. I don't have a lot to say about it. I love the author's Dragonball series with a passion but this title barely kept my interest. Being only one book, it doesn't follow the usual manga pattern of lots of battle in one volume, some character development in another, etc and has to do it all in just short one volume. So not much battling until near the end. It's not bad though and *is* written for children, not grown-up women, like ... ahem ... me. I'd certainly recommend it for the younger set and to be included in an elementary library. It's suitable for ages 8-12, rated A for All Ages, and is clean; mind there are phrases such as "sexy" and "dirty old man".show more
