In the quiet corners of the globe, four strangers receive a series of chilling apocalyptic visions. Simultaneously drawn to a dark city in the West, their fates and the fate of the world are somehow tied to a global satellite network, a massive conspiracy and a mysterious orphan girl with a terrifying secret. What will they give to save us all? What will they give to know the truth?
Created by Brooke Burgess, Ian Kirby, and Andrew West, Broken Saints is the complex tale of an unlikely alliance between four individuals from very different walks of life. Shandala is a mysterious, 18-year-old woman from an uncharted Fijian island, altruistic and innocent yet possessed of terrifying powers. Raimi is a young, Canadian developer of security software who encounters a powerful force online and believes something big is about to take place on the planet. Oran is a Muslim from Baghdad who goes temporarily mad while guarding a bunker alone. Kamimura is an elderly, Shinto mystic from Japan estranged from his former Buddhist order. The quartet is connected through common visions of dark forces about to be unleashed, though they also learn quite a bit about themselves and each other during their perilous mission. Watching this series from beginning to end is a special and unique experience. As the story progresses, the makers of Broken Saints get better and better at their mixed-media technology, and the results are often beautiful and profound. --Tom Keogh
Watch it for the characters, the art, and the music, driven story line and be "entertained".
In fact, if you even had the attention span to read this far into my review, you will very likely enjoy and appreciate this set.
TLDR; Must-buy if you like dark moody philosophical pieces that really make you THINK and FEEL.

When I first saw the trailer for this back in college, I knew I had to see it. Sadly, it would take 6 years from seeing the trailer to finally get a copy of it. Read morePublished on January 28, 2013 by Jason Brown
Presentation-wise, what the original BS did was groundbreaking for its time, an epic endeavor that today may look fairly tame even with the re-touched visuals. Read morePublished on February 5, 2011 by Jake Wang
The artwork is outstanding. The story is the right mixture of poetry and action. It is moody, brooding, and dark in some instances.Published on August 23, 2010 by Amazon Customer
I myself don't care very much for apocalyptic stories, save for a few. But, my parents got this for me for Christmas, thinking it was kind of anime-ish (I GUESS it counts as anime... Read morePublished on December 28, 2009 by Jennifer Rushing
