Greetings and felicitations.  On the topic of "a-un" (from _Mushi-shi_ 
episode 3, which we watched tonight):

"Buddhist temple guardian statues?"


Nio (linked from the above)


Nio Protectors of Japan


Samurai Spirits and Buddhist Terms



Suggestions of series to watch this coming semester:

_Black Jack 21_ (it's an odd number of episodes, but that leaves more 
time for other things)


_Dennou Coil_




_Seitokai Yakuindomo_ (though the verbal/auditory humor is rather 
raunchy, judging by the seventh episode--the visual humor is fairly mild)


On a scale of one to ten (10 = _Ebichu_), this is about an eight.
