In the Japanese version, each card has a name that's pronounced one way, but spelled phonetically in a different way. Spellings like these are known as ateji, and in the Japanese version they are frequently used for card designs based on humorous wordplay. Here the clash between pronunciation and spelling is used to convey "double meanings". The English names of the cards consist of both meanings. The puns used here are similar to those used for the names of the Plant Princesses.
Pronounced sayo shigure ("brief night shower in early winter"), with sayo ("evening") spelled 朔夜 ("new moon" + "night")
The members of this series are Hand traps that have anti-meta Quick Effects designed to disrupt the opponent's plays. Being hand traps, their effects require that the player discards them as a cost. "Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit" is the only one that can be sent from the field too. Each of the monsters revealed so far interacts with a different place, as highlighted below:
Each time your opponent Special Summons an Effect monster(s) during the Main Phase or Battle Phase, you gain LP equal to the current ATK of that monster(s). (If you do not gain LP with this effect, halve your LP during the End Phase)
If your opponent Special Summon a face-up Effect monster(s), Target 1 of those face-up monsters; negate its effects until the end of this turn. (if that face-up monster leaves the field this turn, the player who controlled it takes damage equal to its original ATK).
