yes, but actually no, there is an audio clip somewhere in the game files which when played many assumed to be audio of a rat/mouse being ripped apart due to the squeaking noises and the sounds of veins pulsing and flesh stretching, but (MAJOR TRIGGER WARNING) other people think that this was most likely the sounds of sayori when she hanged her self and was struggling to breathe

One of the girls you can date, Yuri, self-harms with knives. This is made plainly evident in the second playthrough of the game, whereas it's only alluded to in the first (it's in this playthrough that, if the player pursues her, there is a scene where the player character accidentally cuts his finger with one of Yuri's knives).

Arguably, yes— multiple characters are not in control of their own feelings and are subjected to horrible actions and fates at the hands of another character controlling them.

Several jumpscares involving distorted eyes, some which show blood spurting from a character's eye.

Your finger gets a small cut on it if you make the banner for the festival with Yuri.

There is an extended sequence in act 3 where the player is held against their will. Note that this is not the player CHARACTER but they player themselves. The character holding the player will address them directly.

While the main character flirts with several girls at once, there is no commitment involved unless you actively choose one of the girls.

[SPOILERS] In the first playthough, it could be argued that the player character discovering Sayori's hanging body could be considered a jump scare, since there is no music in the minutes leading up to it and the screen is black immediately before (upon making the discovery, loud, distorted music starts playing). In the second playthrough, there are plenty of jumpscares, from glitches" to characters literally jumping at the player.

The bodies or images of characters who have died are shown momentarily or as images that slowly combine with or are patched into another, as if they are haunting the player.

Not by a spirit or haunt, but characters' actions and thoughts are manipulated heavily by a near-supernatural influence beyond their control and in-universe understanding. [SPOILERS] It depends whether you count manipulating a video game character's code by another character to make them act a specific way" as possession, really. [END SPOILERS]

there is the sounds of flesh stretching and veins pulsing in the game files, which is heavily implied to be the sounds of sayori being slowly suffocated, and there’s also the sound of the knife going into yuri’s body, and there’s also often some audio where there is heart beating (in a disturbing way) although i don’t know if that last bit counts

One of the characters (Natsuki) is shown throwing up after seeing another character's (Yuri) dead body.

In Act 2 Monika gaslights the other girls, especially Yuri, by saying that her supposed weird behavior is being exaggerated by them and that they are the ones who are being too clingy to MC.

I don't think you all know what body dysmorphia is. No, no character expresses dysmorphia. No, body dysmorphia is not the same thing as body horror.

Someone *Uhm natsuki* vomits, and becomes SUPER frantic when she finds Yuri's body. Also Yuri gets a little crazy when you read her last poem.

In the second playthrough, Yuri pulls the protagonist into a closet and stares at him with human eyes while breathing heavily.

Two characters commit suicide; you only see the aftermath of the hanging, but the stabbing happens in front of you and is extremely disturbing. You are then forced by the game to watch the character's body over the in-game weekend. The still image/scene of the previous suicide by hanging can turn up in randomized events.

Yuri is shown having cut herself in the second act. You don't see the action take place, but the wounds on her arm are rather graphic.

not in the same way of movies, but slightly moving around the characters to create tension when the screen gets darker and fuzzier for a jumpscare

Natsuki's father does neglect her and physically abuse her, however it is left up to interpretation whether or not he sexually abuses her. It is possible, but never explicitly stated.

Not explicitly shown, but heavily alluded to: in the second playthrough, Yuri becomes obsessed with the player character, to the point that she admits to stealing a pen from him and using it to touch herself inappropriately. She even at one point speaks of wanting to crawl inside" his skin to be close to him.

While not EXPLICITLY stated, there is a poem written by Natsuki which MAY imply sexual abuse, but is likely to just mean parental abuse in the form of lack of privacy (no locked doors, phone checks, no friends over or going out, etc)

[SPOILERS!] While all of the characters are cisgender and are not misgendered, the player themselves can be misgendered by Monika, who wonders what gender the player is and then continues to refer to them as her boyfriend." This can be upsetting/triggering for some.

(SPOILERS) monika expresses romantic interest in the player, regardless of gender, and eventually has to be deleted from the game's files in order to progress

The 5 characters you see in the game are all light-skinned Japanese people, so no.

Not really a fat joke but there is a bit of talk about Yuri's big chest (Yuri requesting to sit on the floor against the wall rather than in a desk when you spend time with her due to backaches caused by her massive chest and Natsuki says her chest grew bigger since the player joined the club) but overall there is no fat-shaming, body shaming, or fat jokes.

Some insensitive remarks about depressed characters, but it's not usually intentionally cruel. Specifically, a character gets playfully mocked for her poor sleeping and eating habits, which are later revealed to be depression symptoms. The player character later remarks on her for not trying hard enough to get out of bed but quickly corrects himself that it's not that simple for her. A more cruel example in Act 2 is a character getting made fun of for self-harm, but it's not clear if her self-harm is due to depression anyway.

The easiest endings to get are not happy ones, no [and there are many different endings, much like the Japanese dating sims on which the game is based]. There is a true", happy ending that you can get but it requires a lot of extra time and effort that most players don't put in (it requires the player to make several save files and pursue each girl individually right up to the point where one of the girls commits suicide, which cannot be prevented - the true, happy ending features the characters who committed suicide, Sayori and Yuri, being alive and happy, and Sayori thanks the player for devoting so much time and energy to make each girl feel special).

Natsuki's father is neglectful and abusive, to the point that he forgets to give his child money for food at school and usually forgets to buy food for her at home. It's implied that he also beats her (moreso in the second playthrough when an alternate speech bubble of Natsuki's states that her dad would beat the s**t out of me" if he caught her reading manga at home).

Monika may reveal to the player in the third playthrough that Sayori improperly hanged herself and suffocated from the rope, instead of snapping her neck quickly like it should have.

Sayori's body is shown hanging followed by a really disturbing sequence of images.

No, nobody falls to their death. Falling to your death refers to dying from the impact of the fall, such as falling off a building or cliff. The only deaths are suicides by hanging and stabbing.

you don't see anyone drown, but there is a chance of unlocking a "special poem" where a character describes a dream involving drowning

No. All of the suicides commited are either by hanging or stabbing and no character ever uses a gun

There isn't a lot of blood until *SPOILERS* Yuri stabs herself to death after confessing her love to the main character. Sayori's fingers are slightly bloody during her hanging scene, possibly implying she changed her mind and started to claw at her noose.
