Parasyte

Huge fan of the manga, was weary when I first heard about the modernization but after seeing the first episode I have no qualms. The only the I hated about it was the fact that they felt the need to throw an unnecessary boob grab in the show.

Garo was probably my favorite. Parasyte and Bahamut were good as well.

Log Horizon's first episode is probably going to be one of those that is better upon rewatch after the season is over. Episodes that have flash forwards tend to be that way. Still enjoyed it, though.

F/S N: UBW was a close second. Strong first episode, reminiscent of Fate/Zero.


That's the prologue though. First episode airs this weekend but I agree that it is a strong candidate for me as well.



Meh, honestly, it might as well be the first episode. I mean are we now going to see that episode again, but from Emiya's perspective?(I hope not lol). If not, I'm just going to consider it the first episode.


Parasyte was an awesome first episode though, but for me I think Fate/Stay Night had the most captivating first episode of the season so far.

Paeasyte and Sora no Method for me. I've still not got around to watching Fate/Stay Night but I can almost guarantee it'll be good.

A tie so far between Psycho-Pass 2 and Fate/Stay Night.

For a first episode, Parasyte was fantastic. I hope they keep that up.

I have to add Gugure! Kokkuri-san. I went into it blind, and was blown away.

There's others I enjoyed, but right now, those are the ones that really top my list.

F/SN: UBW for me, if only because it actually exceeded my hype for it, which I thought was impossible. A very strong second, which would actually be first if not for my prior disposition in favor of anything Type Moon, is Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis. SUCH a good first episode. If it keeps up, 2014 will probably be the best year for anime that I can remember (besides 2011...), because of so many potentially 10/10 shows for me.

More unanimous votes for Unlimited Blade Works and Psycho-Pass 2 here. I simply can't decide, because both shows somehow managed to best my expectations (and they were pretty freaking high, let me tell you). I foresee a quality ~14 weeks of anime in my immediate future.

I had no expectations what so ever from it, but it turned out quite good. The MC is one of the more likeable harem Mc's ive seen in a while


This. I don't know why but I love OP MC's. So tired of the weak or confused MC's.

I would have to say Shirobako and Trinity Seven also.
Shirobako might be the surprise hit from this season.

Shirobako for me. Followed by Akatsuki no Yona.

No doubt about this one. It's Fate/stya Night: Unlimited Blade Works. It's almost unfair considering that this is double the length. Other great first episodes include Psycho-Pass 2, Shirobako, Your Lie in April, and Rage of Bahamut: Genesis.

Damn, that's tough. Probably tied for first is Parasyte and UBW. Both were awesome, thrilling, and brought you directly into the world.

Second would be Trinity Seven. Fucking loved the MC, the girls, and the set up.

Third would be Rage of Bahamut. The OST was awesome, reminiscent to western shows like Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings. Plus, the plot seems really cool.
