Sex & Nudity

A woman breastfeeds her baby, and we briefly see her nipple. However, the nipple is very blink-and-miss and is edited out in some versions.

A woman and wolf-man are implied to have sex, but nothing is shown.

The wolf-children often lose their clothes when they transform, and are sometimes shown naked when they become human again, but nothing inappropriate is shown.

Violence & Gore

The Wolf-man goes out to hunt and ends up dying and you see him lying in a ditch with very little if any blood on him in wolf form

The mother vomits multiple times in multiple scenes due to morning sickness near the beginning of the movie.

One of the wolf-children swallows a silica packet and is clearly seen vomiting. She quickly recovers.

The boy wolf-child vomits in the forest, without warning.

A wolf-girl becomes stressed and claws a classmate's ear. Blood is seen dripping from her paw/hand, and the girl is very distraught by this. The classmate's ear is later seen covered with small, pink scars.

Two siblings (as wolves) get into an argument, which escalates into a physical fight. There are some bloody scratches.


Infrequent, mild language such as "damn" and "hell," as well as some name-calling.

The term "Oh my God" is used several times throughout the movie.

The old man verbally abuses the mother of the wolf children based off of her ignorance to farming and constant smiling. Some examples: "Damn fool" and "lunatic"

(Note: The above only applies to the English language dub; the subtitle track contains no such language.)

Grandpa Nirasaki is often seen with a cigarette.

The wolf-father's death can be very sad and shocking. What's worse is that, since he died in his wolf form, his body is simply thrown into a trash compactor while his wife sobs and begs the sanitation technicians to stop.

The mother, Ame, and Yuki all vomit without little warning somewhere throughout the movie.

Yuki plays with a wild snake and attempts to catch it, it hisses at her and she grabs in by the neck.

A wolf-boy falls into a stream while hunting, and for a few tense moments, The boy wolf-child catches a bird and falls into a river during winter, he almost drowns and is pulled out by his sister (the girl wolf-child). The mother then holds his lifeless body while she is extremely distraught. The boy recovers though.

Ame and Yuki's fight may scare younger viewers.

Ame leaving his family to live as a wolf can be upsetting to some.
