While much lighter on fan-service than most romance/harem anime, you will get maybe two scenes of girls in a bathtub, but you don't see any actual nudity.

There is a brief shot of a naked man from behind in an art class.

More than once, we see girls in a bra/bikini.

The main character shares a kiss with one girl.

A young man asks a minor to buy him a porn magazine as a prank.

A young man "marries" a minor. May cause Western audiences to raise an eyebrow, but it's done as a "FINAL REQUEST" and is meant to show the girl that she is loved and will always be family. A rather sweet moment, and the marriage is never consummated, of course.

A boy is said to have once had a crush on his older sister.

A young man walks in on a teenage/preteen girl bathing. Both are completely nude, but we don't see any sensitive areas. The young man jokingly offers to join her. The scene isn't so much sexual as it is awkward.

Violence/blood is rare and infrequent.

A young woman attempts to beat up a young man but fails due to lack of strength. The scene is played comedically.

Mild comedic violence and slapstick now and then.

A girl slits her wrists (off-screen).

One character falls out of tree and goes into a coma. There is some blood under her head.

One character gets hit by a car. No blood, but we see the impact.

A female character fights invisible demons with a sword. The fights are not violent per se, since we usually can't even see the demons.

However, in the most violent scene in the series, a demon attacks a young girl. We don't see the actual attack, but we see the aftermath: a room filled with blood. The girl lives, though.

A girl is severely bruised.

A girl/ young woman attempts suicide by impaling herself on a sword.

Not frequent or strong. Words used include "da**", freakin', "basta***", "g**dammit"," hell", etc.

One use of "oh shit" in the subtitled version.

One use of "two shits" in the dubbed version.

A man whispers "bitch" in the dubbed version (barely audible).

The series is full of intense emotional scenes that may upset children. Heavy themes about death, disease, and other such subjects are dealt with.

One character is dying (in the end, she is somehow cured). This same character almost commits suicide.

Another character spends her time fighting demons in scenes that could frighten kids (they are revealed to be friendly, though).

The show is actually pretty mild for a TV-14 title. With the exception of maybe a couple of episodes, a "TV-PG" certificate might be more appropriate.
