Concepts in Anime and Manga I Can't Stomach
I have a confession...I suffer from what could be best described as severe blood squeamishness. I also suffer from texture squeamishness but luckily I don't have to worry about that when watching movies or television shows. To put it bluntly the sight of human blood makes me sick to my stomach in a matter of a couple of seconds. As a result I can't handle certain things in my visual entertainment. It doesn't matter that it's animated, in fact animated blood is sometimes worse due to directors and animators feeling the need to overcompensate. Now I'm not saying that anime or manga shouldn't include these concepts. There is a time and purpose for every trope and concept for every genre in the wonderful world of animation, and I would never seek to limit the scope and creativity of the entertainment industry! But the issue highlighted on this list remains the same; these concepts literally make me sick to my stomach! In fact looking at some of the default images for the concept pages on this list made me pallid and dizzy. So here we go! Here are the concepts in anime that have pages on Anime Vice I cannot stomach:
1. Guro

Yeah I'm just gonna say that this isn't my cup of tea. Man, that image really bothers me in ways I can't really describe.

2. Decapitation

Okay...I might have to remove this one...the default picture is actually really messing me up. Yeah I'm going to scroll down now. I'm seriously getting dizzy and nauseous just looking at it.

3. Nosebleed

Wanna know why I don't like to watch ecchi anime? Because everytime a character gets a nose bleed I die inside and turn a little pale. I'm currently in process of dealing with comedic blood by exposing myself to fake blood but I still feel slightly uneasy looking at food coloring in oil or water. For this kind of stuff it really depends on the color. If it has that dark crimson red color then it doesn't matter if it's being used as a comedic trope, I still feel and get sick looking at it.

4. Extreme Violence

OH CHRIST! The images for this concept...he's my response to the images that are on the wiki "OH GOD NO NO NO NO GO AWAY!" Yeah anything that is attached to this I can't and don't want to watch unless it only happens once or twice the entire series. If it happens at least once an episode that's when I don't feel a show is worth the effort.

5. Dismemberment

Now I just want to say that I love me some good action sequences. However when the red goo starts flowing and the swords start doing what swords do...then I need to grab the covers or a hat.

6. Blood Bath

Self explanatory. Also the images on this concept page literally made me nauseous and sick to my stomach. I wont be visiting that page again.

7. No Mercy

If the fight gets too one sided that usually results in someone getting really bloodied up. Something I just can't handle watching is someone getting beaten to a bloody pulp, it's why I feel uneasy watching MMA or boxing for that matter.

8. Self Mutilation

"No don't take the razor to...OH GOD! WHY DID YOU DO THAT! FUCK YOU" that's usually my response to self mutilation. Funny thing is I always get angry at the person who does it, even if they have mental issues.

9. Suicide

The action of putting a sword or bullet through your body is something that can actually cause me to pass out.

10. Seppuku


11. Murder

Murder leads to bad things...that may just be the biggest understatement of my entire life.

12. Doctors

This should include medical stuff like vivisectioning...I cannot handle that stuff especially when you can see someone's guts. Which is a pain because I love medical dramas whether they be the romantic or serious kind. In fact the television show House is one of my favorite shows. I just need to look away whenever they do the icky stuff.

13. Vampires

Vampires feed on the stuff that makes me sick. As a result I'm really not liking this whole vampires are cool thing that has started happening.

I am really squeamish, but only in real life situations, like on Animal Planet's I Survived when they show human flesh rotting from a snake bite, and in real life instances, like once  I saw a guy get a poolstick through his calf.  Aside from stuff like those  I am fine.

I think you meant to type won't
While I don't share your blood squeamishness, you have my sympathies. It's a real shame you have trouble with nose-bleeds, so much anime has that you're missing out. Hope you conquer this blood thing one day!

@Newten:  How could you not notice that instead of using the word "severe" I used the word "sever" to describe my squeamishness...so ironic it is not even funny.

@zombiepie: Though I recommended ways to avoid typos to you a while back, I take it back. Your typos are on a level above all others and should be left to run wild on the internet. I now understand. 
Man, I wish I hadn't missed that one.

so it seems you'e the squeamish type. I don't like suicide, although my reasonings are more because I think its one of the most foolish things a human can do to itself.

I agree with everything except vampires.

Dude every anime has this stuff. Even when the dubbers edit the original anime horribly for people like you still can't get around it. It's a fact of life.
