He may well have good reason for being cocky. The problem isn't whether there's a logical reason for him to be cocky (though it really helps if there is), its a matter of of how it comes across to the audience.
I dunno...maybe something happens that knocks his attitude down a bit?
Hopefully. I don't know if I'll stick around long enough to find out. Even ignoring his irritating attitude and the sexual harassment issue*.... well, there just isn't anything left. It's just a pile of anime/manga/light novel cliches. Yeah, there's a genericly cute girl, but I think this episode made it pretty clear what her role in the show is going to be, and that's more of a reason for me to NOT watch more.
The only reason this isn't an instant drop is because the week is so goddamn dead
in the middle. I'll need some of that time to catch up on shows from the stupidly packed weekends, but I will likely have some time where I don't have anything to watch, at least in the first few weeks. Even then, it might be hard to give enough of a damn to try any more.
*Okay, actually harassment pretty much goes hand in hand with the "pervert" character type after I thought about it a bit more. I think what really bothers me here more than usual is how and why its being done. Most of the time, the harassment is more or less the end. It's being done for pleasure, because they're perverts, because they want to feel boobs. It just feels a lot less skeevy when its being done by, say, Tomoki in Sora no Otoshimono. Here, its being used as a display of power, to put his opponents "in their place" and this is supposed to something that impresses us about the hero. That's really, really, REALLY uncomfortable for me.
