It is likely that it will, but we will not be sure until it ends. When it comes to arcs though, they tend to end sadly

In chapter 135 Ciel gets raped by the cult members, not a lot is shown, but I would consider it NSFW and possibly triggering for some. It is also vaguely implied in chapter 19

In the Weston School Arc, Volumes 15-18, there f-slur is said many times, though in the context of the manga it NOT being used with the meaning of it being a homophobic slurs.

There is a system within the school where and underclassman will serve an upperclassman, doing things like washing their clothes/making them snacks, and the term used to describe it is the f-slur.

It is not connected to the slur itself, and the context of the word being used in the manga is not supposed to be homophobic, but it is still said several times.

In chapter 7, Ciels aunt disguises him as a girl so he won't be recognized at a party he's trying to investigate, as a young boy in the Victorian era he feels humiliated. Though in a later chapter, he does this again as his own plan and takes it with stride.

In the first couple of chapters she's in, Grell, a trans woman, is shown as hyper-sexual and a serial killer. Though as the series goes on, she slowly gains quite a lot of character development and mellows out.
