Something is happening with an Akira Toriyama manga series. The Dragon Ball website updated with an announcement regarding a Sand Land Project, with an anime style teaser video accompanying it. On December 17, 2022, there will be some sort of reveal connected to the series. The new official website features a countdown timer.
All information leading to it appeared in both Japanese and English. For example, the accompanying Twitter account featured an announcement with an English description. There are both English and Japanese teaser videos as well.
Here is the promotional video. It starts by looking at endless sands. After that, there’s an animated image of the protagonist Beelzebub asking, “Why did the world have to become this?” This could suggest a Sand Land anime is in the works.
In Sand Land, players follow Beelzebub, a young demon who joins with Sheriff Rao and Thief in a search for the desert wasteland’s most precious commodity: water. As the two journey across a decimated earth looking for a lake, they end up facing the King’s forces who are determined to maintain control. Viz Media localized this Akira Toriyama manga. The first three chapters are available to read in English for free online.
The Sand Land Project details will be revealed on December 17, 2022.
