I disliked both characters equally.
Kagome was whiny, needy, useless in the beginning, stupid in the middle, tempermental in the end.
Kikyo was a dead woman walking amongst the living because she couldn't let go of her anger.
I'll take Kikyo's stubborness over Kagome's annoying personality any day.
Just give me a bow and arrow and we'll hunt rabbits all day. Or improve our aim. Who knows. Maybe we'll find a pokemon and destroy it beyond recognition.
