no deaths are shown on-screen as none of the characters' parents are shown. it is implied that a majority of young characters are parent-less or missing at least one.

children's toys are objects of tetsuo's violent hallucinations including a teddy bear, a toy car, and a pink bunny, though the toys are not real and are not explicitly destroyed.

there is a scene of a character dying with pills in his mouth, but he did not die from the pills nor was that his intent.

characters do unhealthy things like drugs and alcohol, and tetsuo self-medicates with drugs. no characters purposefully physically harm themselves.

When Testuo and kaori steal Kanedas bike they stop in the street and get attacked by the gang know as “the clowns.” They pin kaori to the wall and rip her shirt off exposing her b*****s briefly then pinch her in the face knocking her out.

as tetsuo's health downgrades, his friends call him cr*zy, say he's lost his mind, say he's acting like a crackhead, etc.

It's bittersweet; many people are dead, but there is implied to be hope for rebuilding Neo Tokyo.

No actual hangings, but there is one mention of hanging, and one short shot of a statue with a loose noose around it's neck.

in the sewer scene, characters are pushed under water but are never in danger of drowning. people also die in water from other causes. the city is flooded and destroyed at the end. there are no drowning scenes/no one dies from drowning.
