Several characters spend time submerged in water or travelling entirely underwater. However, water is treated as sacred and safe in this film, and characters are never in danger from the water itself.

There is alot of animal violence in this film towards boars & wolves in particular. Boars and wolves are shown in pain, dying, bleeding, or wounded at multiple points, especially towards the later half.

I was very surprised to find this movie rated PG-13. i watched other similar movies (Spirited Away, Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Howl's Moving Castle, etc.) as a child, but not this one. I'm very glad I didn't! I was shocked at the level of gore, to be honest, and I'm not terribly squeamish! I did very much enjoy it as an adult, however! :)

Characters who are possessed by demons of hatred have worm-like tendrils that grow from their bodies that may be triggering to some people with trypophobia. There are also some small spirits who have 3-4 holes in place of faces.

The main character gets banished at the very beginning and is pretty much homeless.
There are also some characters that live in the forest or are nomadic/travelers, but this is by choice.
