A cute and kind high school student who lives her life both in her own present and in the past, searching for the Shikon no Tama jewel shards with InuYasha.

Origin

Kagome is a perfectly normal young girl who grew up in modern Tokyo with her mother, younger brother, and grandfather on the Higurashi shrine. One day she stops in the well house of the family shrine and a centipede youkai (demon) flies out and drags her back in. In the shrine she finds herself in Edo-era Japan, still chased by the youkai. Running away from it, she stumbles upon InuYasha, a half dog-demon sealed to a tree by a holy arrow. She yanks out the arrow and he saves her life, only to have him then attack her himself.

Kaede, the local village priestess, finds the two and throws a necklace on InuYasha, telling Kagome to say words to subdue him in order to form a spell. Kagome instinctively cries out "Osuwari!" ("Sit!"), which forces InuYasha to the ground. From then on, Kagome has the ability to subdue InuYasha in this manner, and the two agree to seek out the shards of the Shikon no Tama.

The character of Kagome Higurashi is a supporting character in the InuYasha series that was created by Rumiko Takahashi. The series first began serialization in Weekly Shōnen Sunday on November 13, 1996.

Her first appearance was in InuYasha Volume 1 CH. 1 "The Accursed Youth", and her first anime appearance was in InuYasha - Episode 1 "The Girl Who Overcame Time... and the Boy Who Was Just Overcome". Her character in the Japanese series is voiced by Yuki Inoue, and the U.S. dub has been performed by Moneca Stori and Kira Tozer.

Character Evolution

Sweet and cheerful, Kagome has a strong sense of right and wrong and always wants to help people when she can-- sometimes leading her to get into trouble that InuYasha must rescue her from. Physically she has minimal ability, although her skills with a traditional bow and arrow are increasing. Kagome also occasionally uses her intelligence to get out of scrapes. Kagome is only slightly more honest with her feelings for InuYasha than he is with his for her; she cares for him deeply and is alternately jealous of and sympathetic to Kikyo. She is unsure of how to act with her ancestress/romantic rival.
