OCEAN WAVES is an animated Japanese film from Studio Ghibli. It follows a group of high school students learning about life and love.
There is a scene in which two students argue, culminating in both slapping the other in the face. In another scene one jealous student punches his friend in the face.
Occasional sight of cigarette smoking, such as in a teacher's school staff room and a bar.
Some of the students drink alcohol. People are seen falling asleep or passing out from drinking.
There is also some mild innuendo, such as when teenage boys look at a schoolgirl's chest as she plays tennis, with one commenting on the size of her breasts.
