SynopsisThis manga presents different stories settled in a future world in which biomechanoids of any kind are created for every purpose.
All the stories, through different angles and in a somewhat bizzare fashion, explore the same theme:are they mere machines or do they dream of electric sheeps?

Now, to those who knows or are familiar of the works of Kago Shintaro or to be more specific, that of the guro-manga typed manga scene, you may possibly know how this review may go. To those who are looking for a good read and happen to stumble upon this manga... Well, prepare for a "good" read...
Super-Conductive Brains has a story to it, a oddly developed story. Now it may not immediately tell you what in the world is going on, and believe me, you'd be telling yourself, "What in the world is going on?" for the entirety of the read, it will definitely tell you what in the world is going on in a rather "subtle" fashion. Each chapter has its own story to it, but the over-arching story will be slowly revealed, and I think it was done in a rather easy-to-follow fashion, to which I give merit to, granted, that that story isn't really much to go around and may be already obvious and predictable to the some very observant viewer/s.
Now with art, it has the "Kago Shintaro" usual style to it, and to those familiar with his works, it is easily discernible. Now for the general audience, it can be perhaps a tad bit exaggerated at times. Though with how the genre goes, the art form easily discerns what is what, and that is certainly not easy to do with this type of genre. With that, the characters are, well, bland, no one standouts, though character development for each chapter are fairly done and expresses what each characters motives are for the actions they commit.
Overall, if you are a fan of the "guro" manga genre, then why in the world not, not read a Kago Shintaro manga... Now on the far side of the spectrum, well... This is certainly not easily stomached and I do recommend you to "stay away" as far as possible. If you don't like "guts, very-very dark humor, and more guts" then yes... please do take my advice and go... far far away to "Naruto" Land... If you're the "guro" typed person then this certainly is for your own super-conductive brain... you slime... no offense... read more
In both of these titles Shintaro Kago uses the concept of turning human body into either an energy source or a machine. The Power Plant is a series of one-shots that have little connection(except for the idea of human plants), while Super-Conductive Brains is a one-volume manga with a plot, though the plot itself becomes apparent later, and every chapter can serve as a standalone example of Kago's vivid imagination.
