Kagome is best by far!!! No offence to Kikyo fans but she's more understanding than Kikyo and forgives what Inuyasha does when he hears about Kikyo, etc. She lets Kikyo do things and lets her live and sort of "share" Inuyasha if that makes sense but Kikyo tried to kill her at first and doesn't exactly think for Inuyasha. Afterwards, she changed of course but she was still kind of unreasonable. Kagome is more understanding, caring and kind than Kikyo and she at least doesn't try to interfere with Inuyasha and Kikyo like Kikyo selfishly did at first. Kagome was rly considerate about Inuyasha and Kikyo's relationship and didn't try to take him away from her or anything.
No matter personality or what they do, I personally think Kagome is WAAAAAAAAAY better than Kikyo. And also, I think she's prettier, her heart and appearance :)
in my opinion its Kikyo,duty over love.I know, people will say its mean,but don't you think the duty-bounded people won't feel a single resentment pain of leaving your loved one just for work?was that saying soldiers with family are mean because they didn't go home for Christmas just because they had to protect the country's border?
leaving someone for your duty doesn't mean you love them less.Trying to kill them out of lonely just show how much you want to be with them, although that doesn't mean I encourage it.
Kikyo was a kind,pure heart girl who get distorted out of her pure path just because of a man's jealousy.She tried to kill her lover because she thought he had been using him and once was because she wanted badly to end with him.Its not purely evil.Its a pain coming from your loneliness,a pure sadness.
She wanted to kill Kagome,yep.Tried to imagine you're Kikyo,you're on a holiday to another part of the world but when you're unwillingly had to go home back,you found there is this girl,with you're job,ability,and appearances,maybe.Oh and she also sticked closed to your x-boyfriend to whom you still harbored feelings for.You'll stay still,let them be lovey-dovey,acted out all pure & honestly wish them to live happily ever after?
wow,I'm surprised if its true,what happens to your grudge?wrath?they don't just disappear,there must be a reason or some times to come with.
Kikyo was a kind woman when alive,and is still a kind one when a living dead.But when becoming a living dead,she has a much more freer soul that she can do nasty things which is part of human's flaws,something she had restrained herself from doing when living.
She'll no longer used the two-goody-shoes ways to defeat Naraku,but a rougher one,just because she felt its faster & easier,and you call it a reason to hate her?(to any Kikyo's haters here).she just has flaws,its ok if u didn't like her because of her flaws,but one certain thing,her flaw isn't evil.If not,she wouldn't have saved Miroku,Kouga and Kohaku,right?
and please note,any Kagome fans,I'm NOT bickering Kagome here,I'm just here to say Kikyo's not evil if any of you try to make it as an excuse to hate her,peace! ^_^
My option Kikyo is way better. And it's not because I hate Kagome. It's because of many things... Actually to tell the truth I once really liked Kagome, in fact she was once my fave. But then I started to see her behavior, actions and everything... I really started to dislike her. If she really loves Inuyasha why is she always yelling "sit boy"? It hurts him! She tries to make him see her, pay more attention to her... And she hardly even lets him talk to Kikyo. She wants to know what they talk about and makes him say it even though it's none of her busyness. She got in the way between them. And what I'm trying to say is she got Inuyasha to love her and express less feelings for Kikyo than before (of course he still loves Kikyo but it was shown to love her less than before after Kagome came...). And I don't know why you all hate Kikyo so much, but all I wanna say is she's not evil nor a "bitch" as you all call her... How could you all hate her so much when she is even more mature than Kagome! She understands the problems would never act to her "love" they way Kagome does. She is a peaceful priestess and very clam while Kagome is very annoying and inpatient. Kikyo helps people the best way she can. She almost risks her life for her people and young children. She helps a lot and saves many people, but you all treat her like she did nothing but trouble. Her life was a sorrow and pain. She expressed much pain, much suffery. Most of it was Naraku's fault. She got her heart broke, injured very badly, helped much people while much of them didn't do anything for her. She showed her kindness to all. Even helped Onigumo. She took pity on him and that is the good side of her. Evil or not they’re still people with feelings and Kikyo understands it all! She understand her destiny fully. And as much as she wants to be with Inuyasha she understands it will do no good. This is how her life is. She can't be with the person she loved and cared for the most because that's how her life is. And you think it's easy for her? She even let Kagome have Inuyasha and didn't do anything to stop it. She let Kagome have the man she cared and loved the most! Of course i feel thankful to Kagome for saving Kikyo a few times but there's nothing to thank her for. Kikyo already let her have Inuyasha and she didn't ask Kagome to help her anyway. Of course that was a good hearty of Kagome but she did this for Inuyasha, not Kikyo. So Kikyo shouldn't thank her. She experienced much pain and this is how everyone treats her! Calls her a "bitch" and more other bad words! Is it because you ll don't understand her life? Kikyo tried to live a normal life, wanted to live a life of a normal woman, but things didn't turn out her way. Her life lead to a sorrow. And that’s how it ended. The only thing that made her happy before she left this life was that she was with Inuyasha one last time and shared one last kiss... U_U
Its just a matter of opinions and circumstances, but I like Kikyou better. She doesn't have this big annoying jealousy issue, acts right under pressure (which Kagome doesn't) and she's just SO cool
kikyo's life was very sad: she had a huge power, yet she wanted to be normal. When, she fell in love, she died believing herself betrayed... then revived against her will, to wander as a zombie forever, and saw that her love was with another woman: her REINCARNATION!! I mean, if that's not sad, then what?
And Kagome IS interfering between Kikyo and InuYasha: ahe demands to know where they were, how much time, of what things did they talk... leave them alone!!! Sadly, ger firends support this attitude
(I've stated enough reasons for this alreay in previous answers and picks, I just Like Kikyo better. Kagome annoys me, and Kikyo is trgaic... I like tragic better...shrugs) So there it is:P
Of course I don't like the way the poster question was asked, it should be 'Who do you like better?'... not 'who IS better?' looks like the question is in demand of a statement of facts rather than opinions. I think people who post questions should think a little bit more about what they want to say and ask before posting, I think it would encourace people to respond with more mature answers. Just me two cents-_-".
*In a battle, Kikyo's a lot stronger and would probably help more.
*For Inuyasha, Kagome's a lot better because when you think about... Kikyo is technically a part of Kagome (her soul) and when Kikyo dies that part will probably end up back inside Kagome anyway. Plus, Kikyo can't have children and is waaaaaaay too high strung.
i think kagome is way better! why? well one kagome has been on more adventurs with inuyasha than stupid kikyo! i mean just think about it ppl! of course inuyasha still has feelings 4 kikyo but everytime kagome is in dander who is the first one to get upset and run to save her....inuyasha! so i think kagome is also consered 4 inuyasha to, shes loved him from the start! kagome is very useful in battles and shes understanding when inuyasha goes of on his stupid journey to save kikyo! so in my perspective i belive it kagome...and inuyasha should open his eyes and forget about kikyo!
Kagome is the best girl ever. She's forgiving, more understanding, caring and kind than Kikyo, Kagome doesn't try to interfere with Inuyasha and Kikyo. Kagome was really considerate about their relationship, she didn't try to take him away from Kikyo or whatever, she's prettier, funny, smart, not judgemental, and her heart is pure, good, and made of gold.
if the question about their skill in battlefield, KIKYO is better.
about overall, KAGOME is better than Kikyo... more than that, Inuyasha NEEDS Kagome in his life.
i don't know why people said that Kikyo make a bigger sacrificies over her duty and love than Kagome. in my opinion, Kagome's sacrifies as equal as Kikyo's... so is her pain. she had to leave her world, her friends, her family, her school... and suddenly sucked into Feudal Era which is not her choice but because of what-so-called DESTINY. but as I followed the story, it was Kikyo's wish "to see Inuyasha again" that makes Kagome met with Inuyasha. Kagome had to leave her normal girl life and suddenly living in this strangers' world and had to carry such duty.
for those who said Kagome is selfish, think it over. if she is selfish, she'd have abandoned this job long ago. she's better living in her current peaceful world rather than experiencing such hardships in feudal era.
in some ways Kikyo maybe be more mature than Kagome, but not if it's involved love towards Inuyasha. Kikyo is more possesive than Kagome. Kikyo tries to bound Inuyasha even after her death, that's why she avoid heart-to-heart conversation with Inuyasha after she's been resurrected. even after she found out that it was Naraku's plot that make them hate each other, she keeps avoiding to talk about this with Inuyasha. every time she meets Inuyasha, she always full with her possesiveness. she tried to kill Kagome, tried to drag Inuyasha into hell with her, manipulated Inuyasha through illusion. IMHO, this is such a selfish love. if it was Kagome, she won't do such things to express her love. after learning the truth, why dont Kikyo talk it over with Inuyasha then say goodbye to him and leave him peacefully? this way they can have a proper broke up. by appear and suddenly disappear again, it just seems like she's trying to bind Inuyasha more and more.
another point that shows Kagome's maturity is that she accepts Inuyasha the way he is, she never asked him to be a normal human like Kikyo did.
if that Naraku's infant had chance to see into Kikyo's heart... i wonder what will he see, but i think it'll be darker than Kagome's heart. so, in my opinion she's not really that super pure hearted girl.
and about that 'osuwari' thing, i could say Inuyasha deserves it. even Sango tried it on Inuyasha, though she failed.
i don't hate Kikyo... the one i hate is Inuyasha for being such a fickle guy.
Seriously, why does there always have to be division in loving Kagome or Kikyo? In loving these two women, i am like Inuyasha; i love them both equally. I mean, yeah, Kagome always tells Inu to sit, but it's only when he deserves it, plus that spell was originally going to be Kikyo's, remember? And, yeah, Kikyo tried to kill Kagome, but she was going through some stuff at the time and she can be forgiven. Kagome is pure and Kiyo is noble, and they are both beautiful, so let's learn to love them all
Personally i adore Kagome a lot more. although Kikyo isn't my favorite i understand her life was tragic. all she wanted was to be a normal girl i get that... Although if her love for Inuyasha was true then how come her trust/love for him was broken so easily. I mean yes if i was in her situation i'd have doubts but i know that deep in the back of my mind i wouldn't believe it. To me it shows that their love was not as strong as they thought it was. Kagome on the other hand loved Inuyasha from the start & you cane easily tell that he love for him will never be broken.
Although yes i feel that Kagome is slightly childish...but so is Inuyasha! & yes she gets in the way now and then but even a guy like inuyasha needs that comforting feeling of someone needing him. Besides near the end Kagome got a lot better at protecting herself i think. i mean she has cons but to me i feel like they all fit well with Inuyasha. I do wish she was more calm like Kikyo but thats what makes her, her.
Kikyo like i said before...i feel like their love was not strong enough. Although if i was put in her shoes i'd feel her pain and as to why she'd want Inuyasha & why she'd despise Kagome in a sense but...Kikyo is dead. Her life is over & he soul needs to move on, and her & Inuyasha must learn that. Besides form the beginning Kikyo has always given me a sense of unease. whenever she showed up i felt almost anger because i knew she was going to try and do something that the REAL Kikyo wouldn't do, yet loneliness drives you to do crazy things her action still made me upset. that & her soul was literally staying alive off of dead/lost souls and anger/hate. was a sour way to live[even though technically she isn't alive.] first loves are hard to overcome...but lets face it. Inuyasha & Kagome's love is clearly much stronger than his & Kikyo's.and yeah yeah yeah i know Kikyo had Inuyasha first...but think about it...how offten to first loves work out anyways. i know my first "true" love was down the toilet and i knwo many peoples who did as well...sometimes you THINK you love someone when you really do not... but we all know Kagome had strong feelings for Inuyasha since day one...and Inu, well he felt for her too...but not having the right/proper closer that most people get form their first relationship can really screw with your heart. & thats all he really needed was closer to then realize his true love/feelings for Kagome were much stronger than his for Kikyo. I dont hate kikyo, i actually feel sorry for her. and i always hoped that she find her way back to the after world soon because, wondering earth like she did only made her soul more sour and lonely. she strived to be alive again when clearly its not meant to be...she lived a tragic story...and i always wanted it to end for her, peacefully like it should have when she first died.
I just feel like Kagome & Inuyasha loves is much stronger and more pure[love] than Kikyo's and Inu's...♥
picture is the rest of my comment
I think Kagome is better. She's WAY more understanding than Kikyo and alot more forgiving too. She was really the only one who could actually read Inuyasha and understand what he was going through. Kikyo, on the other hand, tried to kill Inuyasha, not even thinking about why he did it.
Who iz better? hmmm....im going for Kagome. Any reasons? Uh sure...
I think Kagome is more....understanding. You know? And the whole Kikyo attempting to kill Kagome thing is a little on the downside.Basically (and in no offensive, im not trying to argue) I believe Kikyo should suck it up, it was her choice and she got punished for those choices...so sorry, she just needs to calm down and accept the fact that she is dead, leave InuYasha alone,and Kagome to, haha.
i've been dieing for someone to ask me this question. of course it's kikyo, kikyo can just shoot her arrow within 3 seconds while kagome has to sit there for about 20 saying steady steady hit the target yes. and besides lets see kagome take naraku on by herself for a while.and one last thing kagome couldn't pin inuyasha to a tree if she tried furthermore still have him love her. so there that proves kikyo is better than kagome even though there are millions of more reasons why she is.
Kikyo is WAY better than Kagome.
Because she is a stronger fighter,shes prettier,older, she has more experience, she is alot smarter and wiser.She isnt as heartless as everyone thinks.The only reason she wanted to kill Kagome is because she felt that Kagome was stealing her own love. She felt threatened by Kagome.She wanted Inuyasha to go to hell with her because she wanted to die by his side. And if that isnt true love then I dont know what is. And Kikyo didnt CHOOSE to die like u all say. Naraku killed her over his jealous rage and so he could steal the shikon jewel u morons.And Kikyo has actually HELPED Kagome plenty of times. Your just to blind to see it.After a while she realized Kagome wasnt much of a threat and she didnt really worry about having Kagome dead.She actually started to like her.
I think Kikyo, because all she ever wanted in her living life was to become a normal girl. When she fell in love with InuYasha, they worked really well. You've seen how they work, and Kikyo doesn't hesitate to shoot arrows.
If you keep seeing everything in Kagome's eyes, you'll probably hate her, and that's what makes you blind. Kagome wasn't even dating InuYasha the first time Kagome saw Inu and Kikyo kissing -.- and she goes to all this effort acting as if InuYasha cheated on her. -.-
it has to be Kikyo..!! inuyashas love for kikyo is way more deeper,that even after more than 50 years is still hard 4 him to 4get her..i think kagome is just being selfish..caz she went after inuyasha after he had cleared his mind about who he wanted and she tryed so hard to get him knowing that he had feelings 4 a nother girl..
and every one still have the nervs of asking inuyasha id he still loves kikyo or not..he told evry one of them that he wants to be with KIKYO even if he had to go 2 hell with her..
kagome s just annoying and selfish..even if kikyo isnt the same person but inuyasha still deeplly loves her and thats all that it matters,kagome just doesent knw when to leave inuyasha alone!
I believe Kagome is better than Kikyo because of the way Kagome loves Inuyasha. Kikyo was the type of person who did not believe in love but Inuyasha in a way had to show her. Her guard was always up around him until he gave her something very precious to him, and then she finally felt his love. Kagome loved him by falling in love with him and she made him happy and realize a lot of things that he didn't quite understand when he was with Kikyo. Yes, I felt a little bad for Kikyo of how her love was twisted but if she truthfully cared then she would've thought that he could never do something as to hurt her as Kagome would have thought to herself. Kagome dodged an arrow for Inuyasha because she would never want anything like that to happen to him, and she almost died. They would risk each other's life for each other, and I think that is what love should be. Kikyo had much jealousy towards Kagome while Kagome learned to be strong all the times Inuyasha tried to hunt down Kikyo. Love should not have to be searched for and to only find nothing but to be always with you in your heart, a mutual feeling. That is what Inuyasha and Kagome has, true love
Kikyo has a very good reason for why she did what she did. Her life was tragic. Poor girl, but she seemed to turn good at the end. Kagome is good too. They're both nice. So what if Kikyo didn't love InuYasha like Kagome did. Should that really effect our opinions. Her guard was up because her life was tragic. I like Kagome too, though.
kagome is way better than kikyo befor i say my opinion i want to say some thing to kikyos fans just because kikyo is good in fighting that does not proof that kikyo is not selfish it is just that kikyo is used to fighting unlike kagome besides kagome is stronger in side and is more important . i love kagome because she never tried to interfear between inu and kikyo she exepted that she cant braek the bond between kikyo and inu but the least she wanted to do for inuyasha is stay beside him . and poor kagome she once tried to kill naraku for making inu and kikyo brake up she tried to get revenge of all the he has done...
and in the end you say kagome is selfish and can you tell me how many times did kagome saved kikyo in the cave and when the miasma had goten to kikyo and when she ( kikyo ) thought that inuyasha betrayed her it was kagome who told her about naraku you fans of kikyo are so ungreatful of what kagome did to kikyo
I personally like Kikyo but have nothing against Kagome. What I can't understand is why people can't just like them both. Kikyo lovers usually hate Kagome and Kagome lovers hate Kikyo. Kagome got Inuyasha in the end, so stop dieing about it! Anyway, I like Kikyo better but I also like Kagome just a little less, so there you go, very late answer, but whatever.
Well, I like Kagome better. She is cheerful, helpful and has a likable personality. She taught InuYasha how to smile, have fun and rely on others. She, in my opinion is also forgiving. Kikyo on the other hand is also sweet and prefers to be duty-bounded. But there's just something about her personality that makes me like her less.
kikyo is far better than kagome. better in looks, power, skill and intelligence, and of course love. yeah yeah i know how she acted mean and out of spite and all. but it is evident that inuyasha loved kikyo more. his eyes are always filled with immense love whenever he sees kikyo. the way he looks at her, thinks of her, longs for her love..its just beautiful.
and kagome. yes she is kind hearted and nice but...she looks horrible, i guess i can why inuysha likes, but is DEFINITELY NOT my fave. no wisdom, no beauty and the only thing she is good is at saying "SIT BOY!" kikyo's personality, her aura, her kindness is what makes her my fave. the most beautiful anime girl.
so kikyo all the way for me.
Kikyo!!! I feel sorry for her, she`s been through so much and ended suffering again when she was brought back to life, not according to her will. Even though she was sad and lonely, she still continued to heal people and she was kind to the villagers
I like Kikyo better. She's better for Inuyasha, Kikyo said it the best to Keide "Had I lived, it would have been me to heal his heart."
Kikyo started the path, she was Inuyasha's first love. Inuyasha even picked Kikyo over Kagome. To the point where Kagome went home, cried to her mom, went back and just wanted to be with Inuyasha knowing that Kikyo was first in his heart.
I feel that Kikyo would've been a better mate for Sesshomaru, as Kikyo isn't childish like Kagome.
Kagome is always crying, and screaming and panicking. She has a great heart, don't get me wrong. I love both of them. But Kikyo is better and it isn't really that close.
Kikyo is more powerful, her knowledge is better, and the only thing that slows her down is that she has to borrow soul to stay alive. I think that if Kikyo had lived, and Inuyasha had the choice between an alive Kikyo or Kagome, I believe that Inuyasha would choose Kikyo every single time.
Kagome because she lets Inuyasha go see Kikyo when she knows she still loves him. She still helps him out and tries to cheer him up. She saves Kikyo twice when Kikyo tries to kill her and when she saves Kikyo she doesn't even get a 'thanks' or 'thank you'. Kagome never gave the jewel shards to Naraku like Kikyo did. She loved Inuyasha for who he is unlike Kikyo who wanted him to be human. Kagome even adopted Shippo! She has been there and forgave him when he tried to get the jewel shards. She is more understanding as well as caring. She loves Inuyasha yet she still allows him to see Kikyo with out going into a huff. She may not be as powerful as Kikyo but I believe she is kinder and better.
