There's a few ghouls that are addicted to human flesh. Most of them just see it as food vital to survival that they eat when needed but some are different.

There's an arc with a character victim shaming the main character in a way similar to how rape victims are shamed. Skip the fight in the church with nishkis gf. There's also some sexual harassment.

In a torture scene, a character gets their toes cut off multiple times, because they keep growing back.

Episode 1
Kaneki vomits at 15:20 after eating human food, skip until about 16:30 to be safe.
He also vomits blood earlier in the episode, but it’s not bad.

Episode 2
Kaneki vomits in the first 30 seconds of episode 2 after eating something in the alleyway.
Kaneki vomits a lot of blood during a fight at about 13 mins in.
^Same scene Nishio gags himself. (sound)
^Same Scene Kaneki vomits blood. (graphic)
^Same scene Nishio vomits blood (not graphic barely sound)

Several characters refer to Juuzou as a girl or question if he is one. They typically correct themselves when they find out he isn’t.

If you watch all of it, in season 4 (aka the really long season 3, at least on Hulu/where it really ends) ghouls don’t have to fear for their lives anymore, and they’re equal.

Not gonna explain it in too much detail in case I get it wrong, I haven’t watched it in about a year;;
