It's a tie between Parasyte and Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works for now. Still waiting on Mushishi and Sanzoku no Musume Ronja

I would have to say Fate/stay night, as soon as the episode finished my whole being screamed in a majestic voice, "ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN!"

Honestly?

No first episode was even close to impressing me the way Shirobako's did. I was pretty surprised, but I legitimately thought it was great.

Fate/Stay Night and Parasyte were good, however Garo was the one that surprised me the most. That first episode was awesome.

yeah the fate stay night prologue was pretty awesome.

i like ookami shoujo's start, but as a manga reader it wasn't anything new to me. So fate stay night it is since that is brand new to me and beautifully animated.

A lot of great first episodes this cour to be honest.

Your Lie in April was absolutely wonderful from the music to the character designs and animation. Honestly I thought it was near movie quality.

Celestial Method as well, beautifully animated, wonderful stuff. Almost a complete story, if it ended right there I'd be happy though I am glad there is more and just hope it can keep it up.

Saw some things in Amagi Brilliant Park episode 1 that I've waited years for coming from KyoAni so it was awesome... but to me episode 2 was not nearly as good.

ShiroBako was excellent, such a whirlwind tour of the anime process and some fun driving... I am looking forward to the next ones but also worried about where it might possibly go for 2 cour worth.

It's a short but Bonjour Koiaji Patisserie was a lot of fun though it felt chopped rather than well sized in one episode.

And I don't understand a thing my husband says, another short was just hilarious. The second episode may have been even better!

Fruits of Grisaia was also really really good, a great intro. Hope it can keep it up.

Finally, I thought Seven Deadly Sins was an excellent first episode, much better than I'd expected.

But still, Your Lie in April I think may take the cake.

Your Lie in April to me seemed like a Nodame Cantabile for a younger audience.

Hands down FSN was my favorite,

I really liked Parasyte, Rage of Bahamut, Sora No Method, and Your Lie in April

Middle School instead of college... the musician who can no longer play... the childhood friend, the girl who likes another boy who's a jock when really the two musicians need to get together... it seems like it has all been done before. In truth it has and yet at the same there is something magical about Your Lie in April!

I have a feeling that I already know how it is going to end, but I don't care. It is so beautifully done that I will enjoy it until the end even if it is predictable.
