...Though he doesn't make it clear to us what he saw, there is proof that he did see.
I wonder if Matsumoto actually forgot what she wrote, or if the times when Maki still doesn't seem convinced were simple mistranslations.

Maybe if Aikawa had taken off the hair accessory in Ch 17 and maybe worn his/her hair differently it would have sealed the deal. But apparently author wants to keep the tension going.

I have read nothing that implied that Maki is confused about Aikawa's gender. What I HAVE read is sexual confusion.

But if you go back a single page, from what you linked, you can see that Maki didn't get a view of the jewels. What he saw was Aikawa's butt. And both men and women have those.

It's pretty ambiguous if you want it to be. Put the scenario in a more, ah, traditional romcom, and the dialogue would conform exactly to the girl and guy when she accidentally panty-shots and suddenly realizes the guy is nearby.

That, and I've been reading a different translation where it's much more obviously about Aikawa's underwear, so that's the idea I've been biased towards already. Sorry, I just don't think Maki saw anything definitive aside from Aikawa's preference for girlshorts or boyshorts.

Hm no, i agree with the poster above me that the author was just trying to show that Maki finally understood Aikawa's umm taste and preferences in underwear. It was only a panty shot (?) after all and wouldn't have shown her gender IMO.
