Why could she transport things like her bicycle and schoolwork, but not another person? While this was obviously a plot device meant to limit who and what could make their way through the well, it doesn't stand up to scrutiny without an explanation. The well should have worked to allow more people or demons to make their way through it, but that simply wasn't the case. When Kagome first traveled through the well, she found herself within a world very unlike the one she just left.
The land was rife with magic and demons, which remained the setting for the series. She even teamed up with a half-demon and battled many throughout her time in Feudal Japan. With so many demons just out and running about, it seems strange that there aren't any in modern-day demons in Japan.
So, what happened to them?
On the surface, it seems Takahashi was meant to separate the time-periods into two different worlds, and while that makes sense for storytelling purposes, it doesn't make much logical sense. In the past, Miroku demonstrated a number of spiritual abilities with his spells, but those abilities seem to be only available to people in the past.
In the present, Kagome's grandfather has his various charms, but they don't deliver the same level of effectiveness as someone like Miroku in Feudal Japan.

There isn't an explanation given as to why magic no longer exists in the modern world, but it could be that people like Kagome's grandfather simply lack the skill and ability to properly use it. Whatever the reason, it seems that there should be as much magic available in the present as there was in the past. This one may fall into the nitpicking category, but for anyone who struggled to learn to ride a bike, it was a bit odd to see someone like Miroku hop onto one and ride it about with little to no problems.
While most people learn to ride as children, even adults find it difficult to learn to ride a bike if they skipped their lessons in childhood. Knowing that, it doesn't make sense that a person who was born and raised in Feudal Japan could pick up a bicycle and ride it about as if it were second nature to him.
Granted, Miroku possessed many skills and abilities, but the fact that he could ride a bike without any trouble doesn't make much sense when you think about it for more than a few seconds.
In some ways, this was a costume, which identified the character, but it really didn't make much sense. The uniform is hardly practical when it comes to traversing the dangers of Feudal Japan while hunting down shards and battling demons.
Why didn't she simply change into something more practical? She had more than enough time and she had plenty of opportunities to throw on some pants and clothes that made sense, but she rarely changed out of her uniform.
Perhaps she liked wearing it, but whatever her reasoning, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to traipse around Feudal Japan in a short skirt. Demons weren't the only creatures present throughout Feudal Japan who seem to have vanished by the present era.
There was never any sort of explanation given for the disappearance of youkai with only a couple of exceptions.
The Noh Mask and the Soul Piper were still about, but they were lost or hidden for a long time so they were likely missed by whatever catastrophe befell the monsters of old Japan. Like the demons, they may have been separated from modern times to differentiate between the two worlds, but they may have succumbed to modern weapons as time advanced. Unfortunately, no explanation was ever given so we just don't know.
The Exam is introduced when Inuyasha and his team hole up in an inn without knowing its the site of the Exam. Was the Fox Demon Exam necessary for getting promoted in order to grow more tails?
Other than that, there didn't seem to be much of a point to it, rather than it being another side-story that the series could have done without. When you think about it, these guys are dog demons, which means their claws should be similar to those of a dog's. Dogs don't use their claws as weapons; their claws are used to help in digging and to maintain traction when running on various surfaces.
They are also not retractable like a cat's, which begs the question, why were they used as if they were a cat's claws? Granted, they are demons and have abilities a dog wouldn't normally possess, but it seemed strange that their natural claw weapons were much more cat-like than dog-like given they are dog demons. This is one of those aspects of the series that is easily established, but it does beg the question, why did such a long period of time pass between reincarnations?
This was never really explained in the series and there was no indication that others were born in the meantime. Given the long period of time that passed between reincarnations, it does make it seem like there was something missing here.
Kagome and Inuyasha are the only people who have the ability to travel through the Bone Eater's Well from the present and past.
This was something of a strategic advantage nobody seemed to think of throughout the series. As the group recovered shards, they were kept in Feudal Japan Why didn't she simply take them to the present and keep them somewhere safe? Presumably, the shards would have been safe in the present without the treat of some demon stumbling upon them and taking them for themselves.
This not only doesn't make sense, but it also seems like a missed opportunity.
Kagome and Inuyasha could have banked on the security of the 21st century and ensured the safety of the shards, but nobody seemed to have that idea, which doesn't make much sense at all. Technically, the sword was instrumental in his transformation, but that doesn't explain what happens to it when he transforms from a human into his full-demonic form.
Does the sword get absorbed into his new body or simply disappear only to reappear when he returns to human form? InuYasha revives, but cannot use the Wind Scar until Kagome shoots an arrow that disrupts Kagura's control of the wind. The Wind Scar reveals the mark of a spider on her back before she escapes.
Because of the spider mark and her scent, both of which resemble Naraku's, they conclude that she is a "detachment" created by Naraku. Kagome uses an arrow to dig the poisonous shard out of Koga, who revives and flees.
Kagura confronts Naraku and accuses him of endangering her by not telling her about Tetsusaiga's powers, but Naraku threatens to kill her himself. Koharu, a young girl in love with Miroku, is so overjoyed to meet him again after a three-year absence that Kagome and Sango suspect him of having been intimate with her when she was only eleven years old, but Miroku denies it. Koharu wants to join the group to stay with Miroku, but he tells her that it would be too dangerous; Sango begins to feel jealous.
They take Koharu to another village where she will no longer be enslaved. Kanna , another detachment of Naraku, uses her mirror to steal the villagers' souls and control their bodies. Sango throws her boomerang, but Kanna's mirror bounces it back and knocks Sango out. Kanna controls Koharu into seizing Kagome to steal her soul.Miroku notices that the demons are still focused on him, InuYasha, and Sango instead of pursuing Kohaku, and concludes that Kohaku is still working for Naraku to get Kagome.
