Gantz and Psychic Academy were the mentioned manga, but I have not read those, so I cannot speak much about them.
A quote from the mother.
A petition went around for people to sign that appeared to be something much different that what it was. It was to ban manga, not pornography. Most libraries are pretty good keeping their selection clean with a lot of shounen and a bit of other like DNAngel, etc. There are many resources online for libraries to look into adding such books and many like this one had them in a young teen area.
“My son lost his mind when he found this,” Barbaree said of the manga book from which her examples were taken. She said her son had removed the book unsupervised from the library’s general stacks last summer and put it in his backpack. “Now he’s in a home for extensive therapy.”

“They told us she (Barbaree) approached them at the Christmas parade and asked them to sign a petition protesting pornography in the library,” said Resource Librarian Sandra Dreaden.
