-> ''There is no magic in our world... anymore. There is a world where magic survives... and they're watching us.''

[[http://www.raidensaga.com/ The RAIDEN Saga]] is a {{Machinima}} WebOriginal character-driven UrbanFantasy based on the premise that [[TheMagicGoesAway Magic was a finite resource]] [[HereThereWereDragons long since exhausted]] from the Earth, but on the other side of the Sun is a hidden second world, a world that is still [[ExactWords alive]] with magic. [[SarcasmMode Creatively enough]], that world is called Gaia.

The plot follows a sizable cast as well as the two Gaian characters. As of July 2011, there are only three episodes, even though the show has been in production for over two years, thanks to its tendency to dip in and out of DevelopmentHell.

The Raiden Saga is filmed in [[http://moviestorm.co.uk/ Moviestorm]], and can be watched in HD on its [[http://www.youtube.com/TheRaidenSaga official Youtube channel]].

----
! The Raiden Saga Provides examples of:
----
* {{Bishonen}}: Kyle Chaen is supposed to be this, but with the limitations of Moviestorm, it's somewhat InformedAttractiveness.
* ComicBookAdaptation: Supposedly in the works, using imagery from the machinima and the exact same script.
* DevelopmentHell: The majority of the show's amateur/hobbyist voice actors are anything but prompt and punctual, and the creator himself has been plagued with computer problems.
* EasterEgg: The signs in Zoey's internet cafe.
* EveryoneIsRelated: According to WordOfGod, Mike ([[spoiler:the guy that rescues Sonia]]) and Patrick are brothers, last name Dustin.
** Elieh's roommate and Trevor's girlfriend are also siblings.
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: When referred to as a "fickle little skank" Elieh objects to "little".
* IncompatibleOrientation: Subverted with Elieh and Zoey. Elieh's not in love, he just thinks Zoey's hot, and Zoey's fine with this even though she's a lesbian, and Elieh is fine with that because he's too busy having one-night-stands to care about not shagging Zoey.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Trevor Reynolds]] is killed in the first episode, which jump-starts a few of the plot threads and bends others.
* MagicAIsMagicA: Heavily implied, but the actual workings of magic in the setting have yet to be explicitly stated.
* NakedOnArrival: Zya Raiden. Twice. [[DreamingOfThingsToCome Sort of]].
* NervesOfSteel: Zoey Tayvia.
* OurSoulsAreDifferent: It's established in ''Dreamer'' that a Soul is the power source of a person's magical abilities, and a measurable finite energy that can't survive without its body unless it's powerful enough.
** It's implied that while a person ''can'' survive their body's destruction as a sufficiently powerful soul, the reason souls were never experimentally detected on earth wasn't that they didn't exist, but that [[spoiler:no one on earth had one]].
* TheMagicGoesAway: A general background theme that is important to the setting, but in ways that possibly have yet to be revealed.
