Bumbling idiot - Seriously, are you guys watching the same series? In Haruka's arc and Sae's arc he was a consummate tool. His initial interactions with Ai were due to him being fairly foolish as well.

All this said, Junichi does redeem himself (usually) towards the end of the story arcs and mans up decently well. But claiming he's not emo or a bumbling idiot is a gross mis-characterization.
He WAS emo, but have we seen him moping or depressed after episode 1? No, he took his courage and confessed twice to a school idol.

Keitaro Urashima(Love Hina), Ichitaka Seto (I''s), Hachibe Maeda(Ai Kora) are perfect examples of a bumbling idiot. They usually have "accidents" that ruin their chances of getting a girl and are often misunderstood. Junichi on the other hand creates scenarios favorable to him(haruka roleplay, sae's tutoring etc.)...
