(needs more exemples) Bullying is one of the core themes of this manga. A few child characters will be shown covered in bruises after being harassed at school. (Chapter 6, 10, 22)
A lot of flashbacks scenes show the main character as a student getting harassed by his classmates, these can be very hard to watch and can range from being beaten up (Ch. 5,19,24,37) to sexual assault (Ch. 17,42) and other gross/unpleasant acts. (Ch. 28)

Some depictions happen in:

(needs exemples) Ichi the Killer is filled with VERY graphic depictions of violence, murders and torture scenes. Gore doesn't just extend to blood as you will sometimes see bits of organs and other body parts flying off
Chapter 28: a man's face is sliced off and found sticking on the ceiling
