She definitely fancies Akira. Now whether "fancies" means "has a mild shota crush on him," "has a raging shota crush on him," or "thinks of him as a totes adorbs little boy and wants to dote on him because he's so adorable," I think the story makes unclear. In the manga it's probably a lot easier to argue for that last point of view, but in the anime I think you're right that her vocals suggest something a liiiiiiiiiiiiiittle more shotaconny. She never feels like a scary dangerous child predator or anything, but in hindsight it is pretty funny how her actions occasionally line up with those of a child predator. (Notably the chauffeur scene[s].)
