There are a few animals killed, but this is for self defense and food. It is not graphic or gratuitous. There is no abuse

It is mentioned that there are drugs, and people who are taking them, but this is not shown

People are shown drinking, but I do not believe it constitutes alcohol abuse. It is a very normal level shown.

no self-harm cutting, lots of people getting cut by blades, one shaving scene s1e7, 26 minutes in. in episode 2 the Tagger attacks Karube with a machete and slightly injures him in the side

there's a scene where main characters are more or less decapitated by an explosive device around their necks (not sure if that counted)

One character is tied to a chair and left alone. A woman is sexually assaulted (her genital areas are not touched). There are also multiple instances of characters being beaten. The whole premise can be considered a form of torture given that the characters are forced to undergo seriously traumatic situations. However, there is no traditional torture.

Someone catches on fire in episode one but doesn't die. Burn scars are shown later. In episode 7 someone is set on fire and then falls off a roof, but somehow doesn't die. Their face is shown with severe burns later. In episode 8, someone is still alive inside a building as it burns and presumably dies.

No. However, there are scenes of people's heads being beaten (not deformed), and characters do have their heads blown apart.

might be wrong but i don't think so. i would have remembered. there's a scene in s1e7 in a flashback to gun guy's past (16:00) where he's being bullied and the kids hit him in the mouth with a baseball and his lip is cut but it's just his lip.

a lot of characters are killed by lasers which makes them bleed from the eyes, and maybe sometimes shot through the eye, but theres no intentional eye mutilation. downvote me if i'm wrong

Brief mention of someone losing toes to frostbite. The person isn't a character in the show and nothing is shown. Same episode (7) a character steps on a lot of broken glass in bare feet. Not a lot of blood shown.

There are incidents that could easily result in a broken bone, but we are not shown any evidence that this has actually occurred.

Episode 4, a man whose wife is pregnant dies. A character's father is missing and presumed dead prior to the events of the show (shown in flashbacks). The protagonist's mother died prior to the events of the show, but it's isn't shown or mentioned how.

in episode 2 it shows shibuki having sex with her boss. on the table next to them there is what i would assume to be a males wedding ring. shibuki and her boss were not married or engaged to each other so i'm assuming that shibukis boss was married to another woman and took off his wedding ring while having sex with shibuki.

There is a trans woman. Her process of facing her body dysmorphia, coming out etc. is shown briefly (all of this is a flashback. In the present she is not shown to be struggling with body dysmorphia).

There isnt an Ed HOWEVER Once the Beach ark starts the show becomes incredibly triggering for those with eating disorders because the women are all extremely skinny and the camera keeps making shots of their stomachs

there's a lot of PTSD in this show, Arisu especially has a lot of flashbacks and panic attacks in episode 3 and onward

One scene involves water filling a room they are trapped in (the room itself is not very small). However, they get out before the water reaches the level of their chins. There is also a scene with three men huddling in a bathroom stall, but they are jovial during it. I suffer from claustrophobia and did not have any issue with these scenes. You may be different though

if you're strongly triggered by suicide DO NOT watch this show (spoilers below) in flashbacks in episode 4 Usagi's father disappears and it's implied that he might have committed suicide, after tabloids accused him of faking his mountain climbing record, but it's not shown in episode 5 Hatter talks about accidentally driving one of his subordinates to suicide (about 45:00 - 46:45) but it's not shown episode 8 is REALLY bad. there's a lot of depression and suicidal ideation: an unnamed character tries to make one of the militants shoot him, but he doesn't. then Aguni tries to incite the crowd to shoot him, but they don't. Aguni later uses himself as a human shield to stop Nagiri and dies. Momoka (Asahi's sister) commits suicide by laser (about 22:00). in a flashback (23:00 - 23:45) Asahi stabs herself in the chest. someone tries to shoot himself (31:00 - 32:00) but the gun is unloaded. Momoka talks about her suicidal ideation around 38:30 - 39:30

s1e5 from about 19:50 - 20:25 there's a scene in a club with strobe lights s1 episode 7 Kuina/swordboy fight with strobe lights, 18:40 - 22:10. they're fighting and then they bump into the strobe lights and turn them on. that segment also has Kuina's backstory flashback in it episode 7, 27:00 - 29:30. right after swordboy's backstory flashback. Kuina busts out some sick karate moves episode 7, 34:00 - 37:40. right after Usagi smashes through the window to free Arisu from his chair. more Kuina backstory in this scene and then she punches swordboy out cold. there might be others I missed

s1e6: *attempted* rape scene, 30:00 - 33:30. unfortunately, after this it keeps cutting back to the room where she's restrained and this part includes plot-important details, but he's not trying to attack her. if you want to skip all of this, skip to 35:50 and I've included a summary below. in the next episode, he gets up in her face and intimidates her, but it's brief. skip the first 2 minutes. besides the actual sexual assault: there's a scene in s1e2 (27:10 - 32:05) that isn't treated like rape but definitely looks like it, and might be triggering. Saori takes Chota's virginity while he lies there frozen in shock and looks distressed. in the scene Chota also flashes back to seeing his mother have sex with his church leader. another scene in episode 2, 7:00 - 7:20 where Saori flashes back to having sex with her boss in order to get promoted. also not treated as rape, but questionably consensual (she flashes back to stepping out of the shower and noticing he's disappeared and that ends at 8:15) EPISODE 6 SPOILER PART . . . having successfully stolen the playing cards, Chishiya prepares to leave the beach. Kuina expresses remorse for their betrayal of Arisu and he lectures her about how sympathy won't help you survive. then he notices the laser grid that's appeared across all the doors leading out of the Beach. the power in the area suddenly cuts out, as lasers from the sky spring to life around the perimeter of the building, and everyone inside turns to look at the screens, which have lit up. the building has become a game arena. everyone in the building is in this one and it's a 10 of Hearts game, which is also coincidentally the only card they don't have yet. Usagi escapes from Niragi while he's distracted.

s1e2 7:05 - 7:20 Saori flashes back to when she entered the game, she was having sex with her boss (she flashes back to stepping out of the shower and noticing he's gone and that ends at 8:15) s1e2 27:10 - 32:05, Saori takes Chota's virginity while he lies there frozen in shock and looks distressed. it's not treated like sexual assault but IRL it definitely would be. in the same scene Chota flashes back to seeing his mother have sex with his church leader. s1e5 19:50 - 20:10 there's shots of ppl having sex in the club there's sexual assault in episode 6 there might be others I missed and there's a lot of kissing and mentions of sex

in season 1 episode 7, Kuina and swordguy fight and the fight is intercut with flashbacks to Kuina's childhood (not misgendering but deadnaming and transphobic abuse) 19:15 - 21:45 she gets the shit kicked out of her by her karate sensei dad during a lesson (before she came out). then her dad finds her using makeup, screams at her, hits her, throws things around, deadnames her, disowns her and kicks her out of the house 35:00 - 36:20 many years later she visits her mom in the hospital who is probably dying and it's the first time her mom has seen her since she transitioned. her mom is surprised and remarks that she's a "totally different person" but is overjoyed and says she looks beautiful. she deadnames her but only because she doesn't know her new name

There is transphobic hate speech in a flashback in one episode - a transwoman is caught by her father trying on makeup and he hits her and yells that they are not for boys. However, it is shown in a negative light (as in, that this hate speech is wrong). No racism, hate speech towards faiths etc.

No, although people with disabilities are entirely excluded from the series. There are a few temporarily disabled characters (due to injury) and it is suggested that they are basically a dead weight (although a few characters try to help regardless).

A trans girl is kicked out of the house and told not to return in a flashback in episode 7. Her age at the time is unclear, but she seems to be a teenager.

Arisu is tied to a chair with tape over his eyes and mouth in episode 6. in episode 7, while still tied up, smoke from a fire fills the room and he starts to choke but is rescued by Usagi. skip 14:30 - 15:20 and 31:00 - 32:30.

Yes, but it is not shown, only implied. Several characters in a later episode are locked in a room that is slowly filling with water. However, they do not drown. The water stops before getting to their faces and they escape

Lots of it, especially in episodes 2,7 and 8. Episode 7 is particularly brutal and the violence goes on for much of the episode so it isn't skippable.
