Animals are shown packed in tight cages in episode 8. A kitten is hit and later left to drown in episode 10. Chu-Chu (a small monkey-like animal) is regularly abused by other characters.

Utena tells Nanami she has fat legs in episode 16 but that is the extent of it.

Whether or not ghosts were present during the Black Rose arc is up to interpretation.

There are two incestuous relationships. Both are one-sided on one sibling's part; the other sibling does not consent to any sort of romantic or sexual relationship.

Though she doesn't die, a very young child is seen being graphically stabbed by several swords toward the end of the series.

Utena's parents died when she was a child, and she is shown at their funerals during flashbacks.

A character, who’s confirmed by official sources and in the movie to be bi, appears to be killed at the end of the series. Whether or not she actually was killed is left open.

The ending is very ambiguous and whether or not it is happy depends on your interpretation. One thing that is for certain, however, is that at least one of the main characters gets her happy ending.

The only dark-skinned characters (Anthy and Akio) do not die, but the former is subject to much violence, both indirectly and directly by the latter.

There's at least a couple of scenes of Anthy being put into a coffin. In a flashback, Utena willingly puts herself in a coffin beside her parents' coffins.

A car crashes with someone inside in episode 28. No one is ever directly hit by a car but there are many close-calls.

Utena's gender presentation is regularly called into question.

Not possession, but worthy of note: in one episode, Anthy and Utena swap bodies after a cooking incident.
