Violence / Gore: A few brawls and the Friday Fellows traditionally eat a tanuki hot pot at their year-end function. Little to no blood.

Nudity / Sexual Content: There is some innuendo and sexual jokes, especially when it comes to Akadama sensei or the Ebisugawa twins. Benten strips naked to go swimming in one episode and Yasaburou, Yashirou and Akadama visit a bathhouse, nothing more than people's bottoms are seen.

Theological Themes: The existence of mythological creatures and their various powers of flight, shapeshifting etc. A conversation is held between two characters after one of them has apparently died. The characters visit a shrine.

Negative Themes: Cigar and cigarette smoking and alcohol use. Akadama sensei gets drunk at least once. One case of kidnapping, shown in flashback.
