Sand Land is a short manga series written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama. It was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in 2000, with its 14 chapters collected into a single tankobon volume, which released the same year in November.

It was serialized in North America by Viz Media in their English Shonen Jump magazine in 2003. It’s volume was later released in December 2003.

The plot of the manga is described by MAL as follows:

In a future world known as Sand Land, the one river that supplied the entire world had suddenly stopped, and the only source of water is from the greedy king’s overpriced water bottles. Demons and humans live together in a world of drought, until Sheriff Rao confronts Beelzebub in need of a demon on a quest to find the Phantom Lake, a river on which birds called Water Finches supply themselves. Though reluctant at first, Beelzebub goes along (thanks to a good bribe) and brings an older demon, Thief, with him to find the lake for the good of all creatures, whether demon or human.
