* BiTheWay: Yaotome, who revealed it almost literally as "by the way" during her introduction, when Shion hit on her right after Yaotome claimed interest in Maki and Aikawa. Nobody could quite tell if she was serious or not as she flirted without a single change from her normal expression or tone of voice. Further evidence points away from it being a joke, unless it's a rather extended one. Aikawa himself notes that in romantic relationships, gender does not matter to him as long as he likes the person. [[SingleTargetSexuality In terms of guys however, Aikawa only shows interest in Maki as this point in time.]]

** When he does [[ComedicUnderwearExposure accidentally find out]]... it's ''still'' left ambiguous, as it's covered up by Maki's SpitTake. Then he says "I finally understand..." but in a loss for words, he eventually drops the matter. The ambiguity rises to a meta level on this point because another translation strongly implies what Maki "finally understands" is whether Aikawa wears boys' or girls' underwear, not anything conclusive about Aikawa's sex, s whether this particular [[TheUnreveal Unreveal]] even ''happened'' is up for debate.
