As long as it is not Yuki Kaji, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, or Natsuki Hanae voicing the male lead, I am very fine with this. Their voice are too common now.

I know Kirin is supposed to be the youngest of the cast, but looking at this they might have overdone it too much,. Hopefully it will look better once the anime airs.

It's enough to get me to watch it, I guess.

Not attempting to flame, I simply didn't know. My caring for voice actors only goes so far as "I like her voice" or "oh cool, ___ has the same voice actor as ___", so I'm a little out of the loop.

For me, it's like following a celebrity so it's much more than just "oh they have the same voice" but like, I actually read facts and watch their real life events :P

I thought it was either Ono Kensho or Saitou Soma for Ayato when I listened to the voice samples a few days ago.

Yeah, Atsushi sounds like OnoK.

Yeah, the designs are way too childish I saw them and was like: "Wait why don't they look like there LN designs?" They're really nothing like them.

Cast hardly matters for crap like this. No voice actor in the world can save these magical school light novel adaptations.
