Drooling while hearing the first moments on the new Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari trailer (only to be followed by an generic pump trailer music, obviously not his music). I don't have doubts on Kevin Penkin, only on the the anime he is working... Please let it be an good isekai so i can watch it while hearing his music.

He's only 26? Holy shit. He has a bright future ahead of him. Made in Abyss's OST was already a masterpiece, I wonder if he can go up from there!
