The goal:
Recommend me two anime series you think have the most engaging/riveting/engrossing first episodes. Whoever recommends me the anime series with the best beginning episode will win.

Run Time:
I am setting a tentative date of July 31st, at 11:59pm eastern time as the end, but may need to change it some due to time constraints (you never know).

Rules:
1) Only two entries allowed per person.
2) It should be an anime series with a length greater than 10 episodes.
4) Only titles that I have not seen will be eligible for entry into the contest. Refer to MyAnimeList in my signature as a way to make sure I have not seen it, and to gauge what I like. (Make sure to check the watching/dropped sections too!)
5) Hentai titles are not eligible for this contest.

After I get through watching them all, I will chose a winner based on which episode I liked the most.

The Prize:
Choice between: Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Season 1, Tokko, or YuYu Hakusho Season 1

I will contact the winner after the contest is over to get your address.

Good luck everyone!

Best first episodes, huh?

My first entry: Gunsmith Cats.
Great comedic first episode. Drama later. Just the way I do not want it. But the first episode is great.
It's unbelievable but it's not on your list.
Sorry it's rather short, but you did write "should"... and there is no rule against entering the same series into two contests...
Me: :mrgreen:
You: :doh:

:lol:

Second: Nerima Daikon Brothers.

I am going to put my votes in on xxxHolic and Romeo x Juliet. Both are great animes with pretty good first episodes imo.

Ah, lots of interesting series choices for me to check out. Just what I was looking for to expose me to a number of new series to see if any of them catch my eye.

I've been meaning to watch it for a while now, so I thank you for finally spurring me into action :gatsu:

Thank you much for the entries Emily, I look forward to checking them out. Still waiting for your hentai recommendation though :wink:

:shame: Need to get that anime watching going Fresno! Gotta quit slacking off, hanging out with friends, and having a life. They're overrated! :blink: :mrgreen: Both of those sound good.

I've owned Planetes for years now, it's about time I checked it out. And some Tenchi Muyo, haven't seen any of that is forever!

I don't watch many of those so it will be a welcome change of pace, thanks koihime! Nice to see you about the forum again as well!

You're not crazy Fresno, it would be "which started last week" since it is referring to a past event :P2:

You and me both Fresno, that one was much better than Valkyrie Chronicles but couldn't seem to get people talking about it. I am writing a review for it though, so I forgive myself for my lack of posting :booyah:

Welcome to the forum Gamegodtre! I've seen the first 4 episodes of Kodomo no Jikan, so see if you can't come up with another series I haven't seen any of yet (and don't forget to check that watching list of mine, I have about 40 titles in there :lol: :roll: )
