I've actually seen the first two episodes of Gantz, though that is my bad since I never actually added it to my list.

Best first episodes? then I'll say Hunter x Hunter. Once you are on episode 4-5 you won't be able to stop. HxH is one of the most engaging anime series I've watched.
The first episode is not as interesting as the next episodes, mainly because it just introduces the main character. But once the hunter examination begins you will love it. There are some very cool characters but the best thing about it is the clever plot. :D

Azumanga Daioh - I see it's not on your list, and I've always found it hilarious. It won't hurt to give it a try. :booyah:

The first episode of Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor. It's a pretty good introduction episode imo and pretty bloody too.

I'll say Kamichu.

I mean, I liked the whole series, but...man, that first episode was something else.

Yes, if he can remember how it feels to be a 14yo illegally watching an 18+ show he might like it. :lol:

I wish I could get that feeling back. Those were great times when everything was new and exciting. Now it just doesn't have the same luster as it once did :sigh: :boohoo:

But, needless to say, I do still enjoy such things, so bring it on! :twisted:

There's not much out there that you have already seen that I have.
So after reviewing your list, I'm going to recommend: Welcome to the NHK

I hope that works for you, I didn't see it on your list.

Yup that works just fine. In fact I just bought the DVDs in that Rightstuf sale so it works out quite well. Thanks CommonDeer!

Oh I'd like to recommend another one! The first episode of Iria: Zeiram the Animation was pretty good as is the whole 6-part OVA series. It's the prequel to the first two live-action Zeiram movies, which I have yet to see.

Oh yeah, we can have two entries...
Well, I didn't see Tenchi Universe (the Tenchi TV series) on your list, so here it goes. It's better than the OVA's first episode, that's for sure.

I've seen Iria already, but it would have been a good recommendation nevertheless :P2:

OOOOOOOK then...

How about Utawarerumono? I've seen the first 5 episodes right now, but I think it's pretty good so far and is starting to become more interesting right now.
