What? No. What?
Umm Satoshi is kind of well gay. He likes Mayaka as a friend, and a foil who will tell him when he's gone too far. It's fun to tease her. I get the feeling that she confessed she liked him before the show started and he told her he doesn't like girls. Heck half of Satoshi's annoyance at Oerki not using his brain to his full potential seems to stem from Satoshi's unrequited crush on him.
Makaya herself also comes off internally conflicted thus fueling her external anger. So maybe she's really a lesbian trying to hide it, a boy trapped in a girl's body, or confused by any number of issues. Her love of weird old manga and crossdressing cosplay has to be hinting at something.
Satoshi & Mayaka make a great pair as bitter friends. But romantically? Nah never gonna happen. Nor should it.
