d’Anima represents the first step into the world of PERFECT CONDUCTOR.
In a race against time, science, and a city that is about to collapse under its own magnificent growth, Mayes d’Anima struggles against every form of social and political resistance in his life-long mission to solve the world’s energy crisis. Desperate for help, d’Anima recruits Melody Casper, a young, brilliant engineer disenchanted by a world that never meets her expectations. As the pair work together to save d’Anima’s power plant, the city, and the world, they are met by the equally strong-willed David Lockee and Harold Wilcox. As value is pinned against value, the four discover what it means to have the strongest moral will and the consequences of their unwaivering personal conviction.
