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 don't like her mostly because she is annoying and unreasonable, but then again, unlike almost every other anime girl, she represents a real girl... 'cause let's face it, most of them aren't reasonable.Kagome is created by a female mangaka, and that is why she is so real, male mangaka do not know how to create real female characters, and that is a fact.

Far better than Kikyo

[ spoiler alert ]

The thing that I don't get about her is that she gets worried when she gets a low grade but then it's her choice to not skip her classes. And then she works hard in her highschool years but then decides to live with Inuyasha in a non-civilized place. Where would she use all the knowledge she got from high school?

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.
