I saw this coming. Therefore: Naoko said Haruka is a girl (objective fact), but she never said Haruka identifies as a girl. And since subjective self-identification is the only thing that matters (according to some) for differentiating between genders, it's quite possible Haruka is non-binary or even male.
Haruka is not written as someone who identifies as male. She may use a more boyish personal pronoun, engage in more traditionally masculine activities, and often wear clothing associated with men but the story makes it clear she has no problem identifying as or being perceived as a woman.
There's room to suggest Haruka is non-binary or gender fluid but there's no reason to think she's trans.
