The Japanese women in white, or as my friend Shrub calls them Stretchy Face, or as my friend Tom calls it, the Japanese version of The Scream.

Or how a google search and Wikipedia calls it

Ameonna (雨女, "rain woman") is a female spirit illustrated in Toriyama Sekien's Konjaku Hyakki Shūi as a woman standing in the rain and licking her hand. She is described as a goddess from China's Mount Wushan, who is a cloud in the morning and rain in the evening. She may be considered a rain-bringer for crops.

In modern usage in Japan, "ameonna" (or the male equivalent "ameotoko") refers to an unlucky person that seems to be jinxed to have the rain follow them wherever they may go, thus gaining a reputation for ruining special events such as weddings or sporting events.

So all 3 of us was wrong. Ahhh Western Ignorance.

Found out there is a site dedicated to Yoaki...and not Yo-Kai Watch... the last thing I need right now.

I hope I did the colors right and gave it justice.
