Old school anime OTPs that made our hearts go doki-doki!

Ready for some fluff content? Take a trip down memory lane with us as we revisit these old-school anime OTPs that made our hearts go doki-doki!
1. Miaka and Tamahome
There is absolutely nothing more scandalous and passionate than the OTP of Miaka and Tamahome. And we probably shouldn’t have watched it when we did. Ehem, talk about a rude sexual awakening. But we’re all adults here now. (I assume, but if not: look away, kids!) So now, we can openly talk about how much that show made our hearts beat so damn hard. But props to Miaka though, that girl was wanted by everyone! Give us some pointers, sis. How to be you please? LOL.
2. Sakura and Syaoran
I absolutely cannot talk about Sakura and Syaoran without feeling all giddy inside! Because everything that they do is just so innocent and sweet and absolutely kawaii! They are the ultimate happy crush OTP! Especially when they both exchanged handmade teddy bears to keep each other company over the summer break. Oh, my pure sweet innocent heart! Don’t you wish love never got complicated? That even simply holding hands or eating lunch together at school makes your heart flutter?
3. Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask
Nobody did it better than Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask. Or is it Usagi and Mamoru? Or Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion? Regardless of what time frame or persona, these star-crossed lovers shared a bond so strong that it surpassed a single lifetime. Because they still found each other in their reincarnated selves. And I don’t know about any of you, but Tuxedo Mask is just so damn hot! Who wouldn’t want a guy who just exudes maturity, charm, and is intelligent too! This old school anime OTP really takes the cake when we talk about opposites attract because Usagi could not be more opposite to Mamoru’s cool and composed self. Usagi is always late, and sleepy, and lazy. (Usagi is us. We are Usagi.)
4. Kenshin and Kaoru
Is there a more drama-filled love story about circumstance than the OTP of Kaoru and Kenshin? Every time Kenshin pushed Kaoru and his own feelings away because he feared to hurt her because of his past. We just wanted to scream at him, “You’re allowed to be happy too, you idiot!” But I guess all that was necessary to get Kenshin in the right headspace. Because they did end up getting married and they had a son too! It just makes us weep for joy, to see them have the life they deserve.
5. Inuyasha and Kagome from Inuyasha
There’s just something about the love-hate relationship of Kagome and Inuyasha that make them the perfect anime OTP. Because we’ve seen them grow into the best versions of themselves. From an immature demon and high-schooler, we get devoted lovers who would sacrifice themselves for each other. But also live for the sake of each other. And after all they’ve been through, Kagome and Inuyasha remain one of the best anime OTP for us.
Which of these old-school anime OTPs do you think is the best? And are there any you want us to add to the list? We’d love to hear what you think! So share with us your thoughts in the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
