hello, your friendly neighborhood neighbor here just to say that right now we have NO confirmation that kanae prefers she/her pronouns. it is very likely he is a trans male, but nothing is 100% certain yet. he is shown experiencing dysphoria over the word “woman” over and over again and is doing his best to have his body built more masculine as shown when he’s training with matsumae. right now, we can’t be sure of anything, so to start calling kanae a girl is disrespectful and quite possibly transphobic. kanae is listed as male in his official profile and has only ever used he/him pronouns, so until we get more explanation in future chapters all we can do is continue to respect that.
