Admittedly, I am a newcomer to One Piece and working steadily on catching up. The series is alright so far and started growing on me toward the end of Water 7. I am currently finishing up Thriller Bark. So far the characters are likable. However, none of them have blown me away to the point where that character becomes an instant favorite and I HAVE to keep watching if not for that character alone. Fairy Tail's Erza Scarlet is great example of this as I love her all around character. The scene below is where it finally happened that this One Piece character just floored me!



So what about everyone else? What moment in an anime got you hooked on that character and to keep watching? You can also mention opposites when a character just killed a series for you. For me that was Light Yagami from Death Note, when he went all arrogant and power crazy. Just hated everything he became early on and couldn't stand watching the show anymore.

Not anime but, the moment Kumagawa showed up in Medaka Box. He came almost out of no where and completely stole the series from the main characters. Once he showed up, I couldn't stop reading.

I'm that way sorta but only because I hate seeing good stories come to and end. I want them to continue and never end!

HxH was really childish at first and I was unsure of it for a while. But then, when Gon and Killua were getting to know each other Killua told Gon he had been raised in a family of assassins and was being groomed to be the next head of the family. "So I stabbed my mom in the face, my brother in the side, and ran away from home” with a completely matter-of-fact demeanor.

Yup, I'm in.

Same series, One Piece, but a different and much earlier scene that got me hooked completely on the show. Specifically during Arlong Park when Nami is stabbing her tatoo screaming for Luffy to leave her alone and finally giving in and asking for his help. Still one of the best, if not the best, moments in all of One Piece.

Honestly, despite how unpopular it is, I got hooked into Aldnoah Zero from watching



But yea, that character is basically what kept me watching the show, as I wasn't too interested in anything else, yet I was utterly fascinated with him.

Kasumi Tendo from Ranma 1/2. She was the one I find easiest to relate to (she was the normal person in a sea of insane fun) and to keep watching.

I'd say Tsuna going into Hyper Dying Will mode for the first time in Reborn! probably is what hooked me on the series.

Interactions between Araragi and Senjougahara in Hitagi Crab pretty much hooked me into Bakemonogatari.

When Yuusha met Maou for the first time (Maoyuu Maou Yuusha).

Warning, the one below is a real spoiler for Madoka Magica, if you haven't seen it yet don't look this spoiler.



The fight between Maki and Lucha (Air Master)

Red in the space fight scene at the begining of Gargantia

But most of the time, characters hook me to a show by how they are generally, not for a particular moment.

My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With My School Romantic Comedy hooked me when the main character walked up to a woman and said she dropped her dog. Then 2 minutes later he finds a certain magazine and these choices appear and he reacts by banging his head against everything. I laughed the moment he appeared to the ending. That's when i knew this was going to be good.


(the italics are things he hears when he has to make a choice)
