Rules -- Ellbound

Ellbound was invented by the Japanese puzzle company Nikoli (under the name Sashigane, which refers to a carpenter's square).
1. Divide the grid into L-shaped blocks, each consisting of an elbow, a horizontal arm extending from the elbow to another cell in the same row as the elbow, and a vertical arm extending from the elbow to another cell in the same column as the elbow.
2. A cell with a circle in it is the elbow of its corresponding block. If the circle has a number in it, that number represents how many cells are in that block.
3. A cell with an arrow in it is the tip of one of the arms of its corresponding block, and the arrow points to the elbow of that block.
