Karakakoo!

When it’s too wet to go outside to look at the flowers, then bring the flowers inside, yoshi! I’m a genius, eheheh!

Awawawa!

What do you mean those look like they come from a shop, yoshi?! So it’s not really my idea?! So rude, yoshi! Hmph!

…..But you’re not wrong, awawawawa! Still, it’s nice to have flowers in the house, yoshi! It makes everything look bright and cheerful, doesn’t it? And cheerful things suit us Yoshis the best, karakakoo!

“Tale of the Yokai” Inconsistencies

I’m sure we all noticed things in “Tale of the Yokai,” that weren’t exactly like the flashbacks and stories Splinter told in previous episodes. There are perfectly logical explanations. One is that the writers had to change a few things in order to make the episode work. An in-show explanation might be that Splinter’s memory of these traumatic events could have become fuzzy in the fifteen-plus years since the tragedy occurred. Either way, I’m not bothered by it.

So if I’m not bothered by it, why do I bother to take the time to make a big long post to point out the inconsistencies? Simple. It’s Summer… I’m lonely and bored. 

1. The situation when Oroku Saki attacked

In this gif, it is implied that the Hamato family was ready for bed when Saki arrived. 

In this gif, it also appears he came over unannounced and let himself in.

But instead of breaking in, Saki actually met them on a porch.

And instead of Tang Shen witnessing the fight,

she left before it began…

…and returned later, presumably when she saw the fire.

2. The place of the tragedy

Splinter explained to Karai in “Vengeance is Mine,” that:

But the building we kept seeing in the flashbacks…

 didn’t turn out to be their home at all.

It appears that this was their home:

The building that burned down turned out to be the Hamato dojo, though it’s possible it also included a house where Yoshi and Saki grew up. The place you grew up will always be “home,” after all, even when you have another home.

3. How the fire started

Splinter told Miwa that because Shredder blamed Splinter for Tang Shen’s death, he set the home on fire. But we know now it wasn’t their home, it was on fire before Shen’s death, and it wasn’t even on purpose. Saki was just swinging for Yoshi when he knocked over some candles.

4. When Shredder left

We’d seen Hamato Yoshi yelling after Oroku Saki in flashbacks:

But he couldn’t have. The roof fell in and buried him.

Raph pulled him out while he was unconscious, and when Yoshi awoke outside, no one else was there. Shredder and baby Miwa were long gone.

He’s also shown to be holding Tang Shen’s body outside in several flashbacks,

but the episode doesn’t show this.
It is possible since Mikey found Tang Shen’s body that he pulled her out as well, and Yoshi later discovered her on the ground, but maybe they couldn’t get away with showing that.

5. Shen’s clothing on the night of the attack

No sleeves, long sleeves, half sleeves… but she was actually wearing three-quarter sleeves and cropped denim.

6. Baby Miwa’s appearance/age

In the flashbacks, she looks like she’s maybe about 10 months-ish.

She seems a little bit smaller in “Tale of the Yokai.” I’m guessing six or seven months.

Of course it’s hard to tell… while in the flashbacks she appeared to have relatively normal proportions for a little anime baby…

…in the episode she had the body of a six-month old, the arms of a newborn, and the head of a one-year-old.

I wonder if Tang Shen needed an episiotomy when Miwa was born. 0.o

She was still so stinking cute though!

Oh and in flashbacks, she had a onesie under her blanket when Shredder took her. In the episode she did not.

Like I said, it doesn’t bother me that there are inconsistencies, and I don’t think it should bother any of us too much since I’m sure there are good reasons. It’s just fun to point things out sometimes.

I haven’t posted an updated version of my cross stitch project in forever!

Here’s how far I am right now - I’ve been working on this on and off for about a year, so I think it’s safe to say this will take me at least another year or more to finish.

I added some closeups to show that the stitches are really tiny, which is why it’s taking me so long. (Plus there are months where I don’t work on it at all)

Let’s hope that one day I actually finish the project!
