BEST FIRST EPISODE?

Postby TEKnician » Thu Jan 26, 2012 12:09 pm

Name an anime where you know it was gonna be good from just watching the first episode...and it delivered just that.
Almost as hard as fighting a Holy Paladin.

... Basically every anime I love to pieces. xD Well, maybe except Bleach. I liked the first episode, but the entirety of the show has its ups and downs.

Cowboy Bebop is the only one I can think of. It usually takes a number of episodes to get me, but CB had me from Hello :)

oh, Last Exile and Now and Than too... OFC it helps when you have a great song.

Tendhi maybe? Azumanga? Excel Saga? can't quite remember the first episodes, but most comedy series' just need to be funny to keep you watching.

More, petty much what Eka said, if it's a great (not just good) series it's probably hooked me from the start. But most best that I can think of is probably Cowboy Bebop. OFC I can hardly think of any of the other first episodes... but that's really a good thing isn't it? In my case the only one I remember is probably the best one!

NO!! I KNOW! ROD TV! I'd watch that sucker over and over and over again, the little 8-year old female paper ninja >>> ALL! Unfortunately that series pretty much eclipsed in the first episode... not including the nude scene in the second to last one... :/

agree with ROD TV, aside from that one

Code Geass first ep was good, mainly the end, even better was the first ep of the second series (

elfen lied (especially if you had no idea what you were about to see, that was me lol)

full metal alchemist (old series, definitely had the cool vibe there).

mai hime had a pretty good one (getting to see mecha, transformations and a ship get cut in half heh)

OOOH, how could I forget lol:
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, that definitely got me hooked, had no idea what the heck was going on but it was awesome

Always say "Death Note". The fact that I can remember the first episode of death note is proof that its one of the best... in my opinion :P

Great Teacher Onizuka. The first episode is actually one of my favourite.

Cowboy Bebop and Death Note come to mind. And both Gundam Wing and Gundam 08th MS Team.

As confusing as the first episode of Baccano! was, it had me hooked.

Agreed. And now I want to go watch that show again, time to dig out the DVDs.

"Another" had the best first episode EVER. I have never gotten this hooked on a series so fast before.
