Ouh wow.. I usually don't hate on voice-actors, but I really don't think that this guy was a good choice for Bell. While watching that PV, I never felt that his talking would fit in the slightest~ He was good for Kirito or Sora or even Aki from Saekano, but not for our little rabbit. :/
Yeah, i think that as well. Watching the PV i just didn't feel the connection as, "this is Bell voice", and all. My reaction was, there's Matsuoka X voice for character Y. Trinity Seven was nearly unwatchable because of him. Bell should have a younger voice. The perfect VA for bell should not have no more then 20 years old. Otherwise it feels very wrong. He should have a voice fit for a 14 year old boy, and the limit age to sound like that is about 20. After that you kinda have to force yourself to sound like one. And it shows in this PV. Females can kinda get away from the age thing more, but males don't.
Again, i'll watch this, but my expectation are very low because J.C.Staff is an inconsistent studio and because Matsuoka is again voicing the MC for this show (With 5 more shows, just next season, the main being Shokugeki no Souma). I think they'll adapt up to the end of volume 3. So i at least look forward to see this content animated and all.
