So, is there a effective-enough reason in-universe that men cannot pilot the mecha, and only women can do it?

Really late response, but the reason is that the Kohbu mechs are run on spiritual energy, which very few people in-universe have. Most of the people who have enough spiritual energy happen to be women, so that's why Ogami and Shinjiro are the only males in the series who can pilot the Kohbu.

So...is there no way to get Volume 8 of the Sakura Taisen manga? Did Tokyopop just stop after 7?
