The "Otaku no Video" liner notes have a fairly good discussion of this
word s history. Basically, Japanese fans had taken to talking to
each other in this highly formal way.
In the subtitled version of Otaku no Video, they translated a phrase
using "otaku" into "Dost thou not remember me?" or something like
that. I found it side-splittingly hilarious because it sounded
*exactly* how certain sci-fi and role playing game fans that I ve
known in the past have tended to speak. It s fascinating to see how
similar Japanese and American fandom cultures are.

Well, here it is:
Miramax has signed Neil Gaiman, the creator/writer of the
award-winning monthly cult DC Comics series Sandman,
to write an English-language dubbed version of
PRINCESS MONONOKE. The highest-grossing film in
Japanese history, the animated PRINCESS MONONOKE
wil be distributed in the US next year by Miramax Films.
Based loosely on Japanese Fooklore, PRINCESS
MONONOKE is the animated tale of the war between the
encroaching civilization of man and the beast gods of the
forest, which threatens to unbalance the forces of nature.
"I couldn t be more excited to write this script," said
Gaiman. "My goal is to remain faithful to the story while
providing a translation that a non-Japanese audience will be
able to follow. To that end, I ve been researching Japanese

at the Japanese box office, PRINCESS MONONOKE
even topped "E.T." and Jurassic Park," the only other films

Gaiman is the creator/writer of the monthly DC Comics

including the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for the
Best Writer four years in a row; the Best Graphic Album -
reprint award in 1991, and the best graphic album - New

Gaiman was named Best Writer two years in a row, and
"Sandman" was named Best Continuing Series in 1992.
"Sandman" #19 also took the 1991 World Fantasy Award
for the best short story - the first comic book ever to be
honored with a literary award. The Sandman collections
have sold over 750,000 copies in paperback and hardcover,
and Warner Bros. has optioned rights for a "Sandman"
feature film.

Q2.2 : I want to know more about the Archangels.
The following information was derived initially from a discussion on
alt.magick where several people contributed pieces, in particular, (in no
order) Le Grand Cinq-Mars, Amanda Walker, Leigh Daniels, Patric Shane
Linden, B.A. Davis-Howe, Mark Garrison, Baird Stafford, and myself.
Apologies if you said something and I missed it.
Angels are found in the Judaic, Christian, Islamic and Zoroastrian
traditions. The word "angel" is derived from the Christian Latin "angelos",
itself derived from the Greek "aggelos", which is a translation of the
Hebrew word "mal akh", a messenger.
Angels are typically found in groupings of four, seven and twelve,
reflecting their role in mediating the divine influence via the planets and
the stars. For example, in Zorastrianism there was a belief in the Amesha
Spentas, seven holy or bounteous immortals who were functional aspects of
Ahura Mazda, the Wise Lord. In Islam four angels are well known: Jibril
(Gabriel), the angel of revelation; Mikal (Michael), the angel of nature;
Izrail (Azrael), the angel of death, and Israfil, the angel who places the
soul in the body and sounds the last judgement.
The sources for the angels used in Kabbalah and ceremonial magic are
primarily Jewish. The canonical Old Testament books mention only Michael
and Gabriel, but apocryphal and Talmudic literature provide richer sources,
and there is a suspicion that this was a result of contact with
Zoroastrianism during the period of the Babylonian Exile (6th-5th centuries
BC). The four best-known angels are
According to one source his name is his war-cry: "Who is like God?".
Michael is at war with the great dragon or serpent, often identified with
Samael in Jewish sources. Michael s original position in the celestial
hierarchy has been progressively eroded by angels such as Metatron. In
medieval Kabbalah he is attributed to Chesed, but in modern Kabbalah he is
attributed to Tipheret, and sometimes to Hod.
Uriel means "Fire of God", from the word "oor" meaning "fire" and Auriel
means "Light of God", from the word "or" meaning "light". Both names tend
to be used synonymously, and the association with light is common in
Kabbalah. In medieval Kabbalah Uriel is attributed to Truth and the middle
pillar of the Tree, in Tipheret. The association with light is significant
because of the importance of light in practical Kabbalah, where several
different kinds are distinguished, including: nogah (glow), tov (good),
bahir (brilliant), zohar (radiant), kavod (glory), chaim (life), and muvhak
(scintillating). In Christian times Uriel may have been identified with
Lucifer ("light-bearer") and Satan, an odd identification as the diabolic
angel according to Jewish tradition is Samael.
Raphael means "Healing of God". Raphael is sometimes attributed to Hod and
sometimes to Tipheret.
Gabriel means "Strength of God" and in medieval Kabbalah was attributed to
Gevurah (the words share a common root). In modern Kabbalah Gabriel can be
found further down the Tree in Yesod, using his strength to hold up the
The four archangels can be found in a variety of protective incantations
where they guard the four quarters, an almost universal symbolism which can
be found in guises as diverse as nursery rhymes ("Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John, bless this bed that I lie on") to ancient Egyptian protective
deities. A well-known incantation can be found in the Lesser Banishing
Ritual of the Pentagram (see below).
The angel Samael is also important in Kabbalah. Scholem shows (in "The
Origins of the Kabbalah") that in early medieval Kabbalah, Samael retained
some of the characteristics of the Gnostic demiurge Ialdebaoth (the blind
god), and derives the name from "sami", meaning "blind". He is attributed
consistently to the planet Mars and the sephira Gevurah, and is the source
of all the nastiness in the world. He appears in various guises as the Dark
Angel and the Angel of Death. The suffix -el betrays his divine origin, and
Kabbalists have been divided between placing him at the head of a demonic
hierarchy (alongside his wife Lilith), and viewing him as an unpleasant but
necessary component of creation. Samael is identified with the serpent in
the Garden of Eden, a tempter and a poisoner of life.
The archangel Metatron does not appear in many lists of archangels, but has
an important role in Kabbalah as the archangel of the Countenance. Legend
has it that Metatron is none other than the Old Testament sage Enoch,
lifted up to Heaven by God. Scholem comments that "...there is hardly a
duty in the heavenly realm and within the dominion of one angel among the
other angels that is not associated with Metatron". Metatron is usually
associated with Kether.
There are many lists of seven archangels. Almost all of them differ from
each other. Mark O. Garrison (ORMUS@SORINC.CUTLER.COM) kindly provided the
following information which clarifies the difficulty:
--Mark s material begins here--
The problem lies in from whence the author goes to research the names of
the 7 Archangels. The earliest sources giving the names of all Seven
Archangels is ENOCH I (Ethiopic Enoch) which lists the names as following:
Uriel, Raphael, Raguel, Michael, Zerachiel, Gabriel, and Remiel
The next two sources which originate within a few decades of each other
list quite different names of the Seven Archangels. In ENOCH 3 (Hebrew
Enoch) the Archangels are listed as:
Mikael, Gabriel, Shatqiel, Baradiel, Shachaqiel, Baraqiel, Sidriel
While the TESTAMENT OF SOLOMON mentions:
Mikael, Gabriel, Uriel, Sabrael, Arael, Iaoth, Adonaei
The Xtian Gnostics changed things a bit further, but they still mention
Uriel (though, in some cases they called him Phanuel). The compleat listing
of the Archangels according to their tradition is:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Barachiel, Sealtiel, Jehudiel
Pope Gregory the Great wrote the Archangels as being these 7:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Simiel, Orifiel, Zachariel
Likewise, the Pseudo-Dionysians used a similar grouping, mentioning Uriel
They list the following as the Seven Archangels:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Chamuel, Jophiel, Zadkiel
It was not until much later times, around the 10th century C.E. when the
name Uriel was replaced by other names in these much latter sources. In
Geonic Lore, Uriel is replaced by Samael (The Angel of Light, or THE
Lightbearer, from whence the ideology of Lucifer had originated from also).
In Geonic Lore the seven are noted as being:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Aniel, Kafziel, Samael, and Zadkiel
Around the 12th to 15th centuries C.E. the name of Haniel came to replace
the name of Uriel. However, the two being quite different in their Natures.
The name Haniel is common to the Talismanic Magical Tradition and other
forms of Medieval Ceremonialism. These Medieval Traditions mention the
seven as being:
Zaphkiel, Zadkiel, Camael, Raphael, Haniel, Michael, Gabriel
Also, a late sourcebook titled THE HIERARCHY OF THE BLESSED ANGELS mentions
a different list of the seven archangels. They list them as following:
Raphael, Gabriel, Chamuel, Michael, Adabiel, Haniel, Zaphiel
It need be remembered, that the Judaeo/Xtian tradition originates from
several religions and traditions, each having its own legends and thusly,
its own hierarchies and namings of the angels. In Islam, there are only
four archangels: Gabriel, Michael, Azrael (the Angel of Death, often
interchanged with Uriel since the 15th century in some European traditions)
for instance. One can easily determine the sources and origins of an book
on Qabala or Ceremonial Magick by what angels they use, obviously.
I personally have drawn up a TREE OF LIFE for each of these traditions,
based upon much research, for reference purposes. Note though, the
differences do not stop with just the names of the Seven Archangels. These
sources also do not agree on the Orders of the Celestial Hierarchy, The
Ruling Princes, The Throne Angels, and the Names of God, just to name a
few! Are you starting to get the idea yet, or are you more confused! [GRIN]
:) :)
--Mark s material ends here--
Baird Stafford (BSTAFFORD@BSTAFFORD.ESS.HARRIS.COM) provides the following
list of references to archangels for those who would like to read the
original source material:
--Baird s material begins here--
And here is an expanded list of references to the Archangels, including
those cited by Br anArthur. I ve included verses from the Pseudepigrapha
(which are the apocryphal books of the Bible not included by the Roman
church in its version of the Apocrypha, although I understand that some of
them are included in the Orthodox Bible). Uriel had a number of stand-ins
who appear to have been other angels who took over his duties for a while:
their names are Sariel, Strahel, and Suriel. I ve not included their
references. And, just for the fun of it, I ve also included some references
from the writings of the early Christian gnostics. In all cases, the verses
I ve cited are only those in which the Archangelic Name actually appears;
in some cases, subsequent verses refer to the original listing without
naming Names.

Two further notes: the early fathers of the Roman church appear to have
rewritten the Sibyline Oracles to conform to their vision of what a proper
prophesy for Rome ought to have been. Also, The Apocalypse of Adam and Eve is
also known as The Apocalypse of Moses.

Lastly, Leigh Daniels ( writes:
A great book is Gustav Davidson s "A Dictionary of Angels" (including the
fallen angels) published by Free Press, 1967. It is available in paper for
US$17.95 and in my opinion worth every penny. It includes a 24-page
bibliography of sources used in compiling it.
[Colin comments: it is a useful book, but the author was uncritical in
choosing his sources of information]
