Kagome HIGURASHI main image

Though still a high school student in modern Japan, Kagome assumes significant responsibility for restoring the Sacred Jewel to its complete form back in the demon-plagued Feudal Era. She is generally cool-headed and cautious, but finds it hard to control her temper around Inuyasha due to a potent mix of deep feelings for the half-demon and general annoyance at his brash behavior. As the reincarnation of a legendary priestess, she can imbue arrows with spiritual energy, making them a powerful weapon in combat with the forces of evil. When not banishing oni or searching for jewel shards, she lives the normal, exam-filled life of a student.

I mean I'm not her biggest fan but she doesn't deserve all the hate

Those who hate Kagome for such shallow reasons like:

- the way she dress

- screaming Inuyasha's name always

- "useless"

- typical character

-  many more

Well, isn't that a bit childish? Moreover, she was basically the reason why "awesome" characters from the fandom emerged. Without Kagome, would Inuyasha waken from his slumber? Or better yet, will Naraku and his minions become an interesting bunch? Let's not forget the emotional support she gives to the other main characters. She is also one of those who got the closest to killing Naraku herself. Not Inuyasha, Miroku or Sango and they are "stronger" than her. She's also not a Mary Sue, it's Kikyo and I can even support that notion.

I hate everything about Kagome. She's the reason I stopped watching Inuyasha >> I loved everyone else, but I could not stomache this terrible character. I'm not sure which character deserves the "worst female character ever" award: Kagome or Asuna from SAO

I'm suprised she gets so much hate, for a tsundere she's really not that bad. I don't really see where the rivalry between her and Kikyo comes in. Kikyo was dead and Kagome was her reincarnation. Inuyasha accepting that she was gone and moving on was a major plot point. The resurected Kikyo wasn't the original Kikyo, she started off as a shell thats only purpose was to kill Inuyasha and eventually managed to regain emotions and become good, but at best she was still just a copy with Kikyo's memories since Kagome had the actual soul. Aside from that Kikyo was pretty cold and stiff as a character....
