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.

[SPOILERS]
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.

Par for the course. Limbs gets cut off multiple times, and while most of the time they are reattached due to characters' regeneration skills, there are two characters who lose their arms permanently.

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.

You can argue that the lesbian characters are misrepresented as their relationship is very sexual. In the context of the entire manga, though, it's not horrible, still sorta uncomfy though.
