Sand Land Cast Comments

Mutsumi Tamura

“Speaking of Mr. Akira Toriyama, he is the creator of a work that I have loved since I was a child, and he is an incredible legend. At the stage of dubbing, I finally got a real sense of it. “SAND LAND” is a villainous Beelzebub, but the main character is a pure and kind-hearted devil.”

“The feeling of trust with the human Lao, the feeling of master and servant-like friendship with the thief, the encounters with other characters and enemies, and the various exchanges with the people around him are very exciting and worth seeing. A lot! I want many people to know the goodness of the demon named Beelzebub from “SAND LAND”!”

Sand Land Cast Comments


“Destruction of the environment due to human self-interest. A large explosion dried up the water and turned it into a desert world. And now, Lao, Beelzebub, and Thief set out on a journey in search of the phantom water source. However, Lao has a bitter past.
The memory of Lao’s regret that appears here and there in the story does not have the same drop of water as this landscape.”

“The photo of my dead wife was also destroyed by fire, and I treasure the gravure photo of the magazine that remained because it was popular at the time (here, my favorite). Rao’s bold, tolerant, and romantic behavior with a strong sense of justice was refreshing. And during the recording, his chest became hot many times. Toriyama-sensei’s love for all living things warmed my heart. I want everyone to experience it.”
