Valvrave, Brotherhood, and the ever epic Victory Gundam. This man is an unsung underground hero!

It's upsetting to see most of the comments on his own page is people parroting each other over how much they prefer Oshima's work on '03, when there's such a huge tonal difference between the two series. In my opinion Senju's work in Brotherhood was fantastic, with plenty of memorable compositions from the bombastic battle arrangements to the more somber emotional tracks. Nothing wrong with preferring Oshima's work, but why not leave those comments on her page?

If I had to compare his work on FMAB versus Oshima's work on 03. I'd have to definitely say Oshima's OST is superior. FMAB's OST was bombastic and carried a action-shounen inspired thematic throughline, but overall I felt that it was much more repetitive and one-note with it overall not being as memorable. In comparison, Oshima's OST reached emotional highs that I don't think FMAB's OST was capable of and its integration with the anime was essentially perfect. The variety and depth of the tracks in 03 just can't be matched imo.
