the main character is a masochist, and during a sex scene, a character asks "what if I crush your balls, will that get you in the mood", but it's ambiguous whether it actually happens.

In new chapters, the main character notices that a character has recurrently shown up around him, and many panels show the character silently watching the main character and even making the MC uncomfortable with their presence. The main character asks them, "Are you stalking me?" to which the character answers "When you put it that way, you aren't exactly wrong", inferring acknowledgement that their behaviour is uncomfortable.

The main character is fighting a devil that is the incarnation of darkness, so he sets himself on fire to “fight dark with light”. He is effectively immortal and regenerates forever, so he doesn’t die.

Characters often cut themselves to offer blood to devils for various purposes, one character can form weapons out of her blood so she makes incisions. In one scene many people commit suicide to give power to a devil so it will fight for them.

an antagonistic character is misogynistic, and (i could be wrong as i don't know japanese, sorry if i am) even calls another character a slur in the original japanese text (in the english they don't)
said character also complains about how a male character acts "like a woman" and calls him a woman to mock him (idk if this counts. Just in case)

Yes. Multiple characters die and don’t get to fulfill their last wish. Don’t read this if you want a happy story.

Par for the course and extremely heavy. Imagery of intestines is pretty common, and there is a character whose brains are exposed 24/7.

There is a scene where the Mc drags an antagonist into the ocean to defeat them, but since both characters are immortal they survive.

Gun violence happens frequently. One of the bigger villains is pretty much a living gun.
