Famous for works such as Dragon Ball, Dr. Slump., Go Go Ackman and SandLand

Go Go Ackman

Name Origins:
While the exact inspiration behind "Ackman" remains unknown, the most likely scenario is that it's a name created by Toriyama with a phonetic connection to "akuma" to reflect Ackman's demonic identity. The name itself doesn't have a direct meaning in Japanese and likely serves the purpose of being catchy and memorable for the character. 

About the Series

Beelzebub in The Bible

Beelzebub in SandLand


While Sandland is a work of fiction with a positive message in some aspects, the depiction of Beelzebub as a heroic character can put the souls of many around the world at risk by glorifying a demonic figure and distorting the messianic message. A critical analysis of the work and a clear understanding of the messianic faith is recommended to avoid confusion and doctrinal deviations.


Educate children and young people about the true figure of Beelzebub and the messianic message.

Promote a critical analysis of works of fiction that mix religious elements.

Emphasize the importance of faith in Yeshua as the source of true redemption.

The Bible mentions Beelzebub in four verses, all within the New Testament:

Context: Jesus is instructing his disciples and mentions not fearing those who can harm the body, but fearing God who has ultimate authority. The reference to Beelzebub doesn't appear in this verse, but it sets the stage for the following verse.

Context: Jesus has cast out a demon, and the Pharisees, his opponents, accuse him of doing so through the power of Beelzebub, the ruler of demons.

Context: Similar to Matthew 12:24, the scribes who came from Jerusalem accuse Jesus of casting out demons through the power of Beelzebub.

Context: Again, Jesus casts out a demon, and some people in the crowd attribute it to the power of Beelzebub.

In all these verses, Beelzebub is used as an accusation against Jesus, implying his power comes from an evil source. Jesus refutes these accusations in the following verses, but those are not included as they don't directly mention Beelzebub.
