Biwa Juuzu - What's a Control Skill?

I like the design of Juuzou, but his Hidden Mist Technique is unclear as to what it removes. Yagura has a similar ability but the user knows exactly what will and will not be removed when it is used. "Control" is not a tag that I see on skills and is even more vague than "harmful" when playing.

Also love the quality of life updates; huge improvements that I'm sure you all worked very hard on!

Control is a tag on skills.
Every skill has a tag that is Instant, Action, or Control

An example of a Control Skills is Shikamaru's Shadow Bind.

EDIT: I'd decided to explain further with an example.

Classic Naruto's Rasengan is an Instant Skill. It happens during one turn only.

Classic Kiba's Double Headed Wolf is an Action Skill. It happens over 3 turns. If Kiba uses this, he'll deal 15 damage on the first turn to all targets. If he is then hit by Naruto's Rasengan he'll be stunned and the second round of damage will not happen. However, if isn't stunned again, damage will resume on the third turn.

Classic Ino's Mind Body Switch is a Control Skill. It happens over 4 turns. If Ino is stunned by Rasengan during this time, the skill will end completely. It will not resume for turns 3 and 4.

Instant: Instant skills are skills that do their work instantly. An instant skill that lasts more than 1 turn is not stopped by its caster being stunned or by its target becoming invulnerable.

Action: Action skills are skills that last multiple turns and require the attention of the caster each turn anew. If the caster loses contact with the target, by a stun or an invulnerability, the action will have no effect that turn. But since the skill is done each turn anew, the skill will continue once the caster has contact with its target again. A non-damage action effect is not written like a damage effect is (for X turns), it has the "ends this turn" or "for 1 turn" text applied on its target each turn for its duration.

Control: Control skills require constant contact between caster and target. If the contact is broken, the skill will end. Control skills are also only cast once, only at the start of the skill when they make contact with the target, much like instants. If your character somehow loses all the self-effects ("This skill can be canceled" text included) on them of a control skill they used, the skill will start working like an instant skill.
