Katanagatari, nanatsu no taizai, monogatari, yona of the dawn, samurai champloo, hellsing ultimate were all good from memory.

Kotoura-San

It had me on the verge of tears the whole first half of the episode, and then it just jerks the run out from under you with some completely absurd humor. It's smart and well written, it's funny, and it is a great introduction to the characters and the world.

The rest of the show doesn't live up to that potential (it gets hit-and-miss after that), but that first episode is just incredible.

The first 10 seconds of Parasyte The Maxim shocked me. Not in a bad way, but it was really sudden to start a show and already see someone get decapitated. It was a pretty interesting opening, to say the least.

off the top of my head I'd have to say

Kill la kill hell the first 5 minutes set up the entire show!

and the first eps of GaoGaiGar is great too.

Attack on Titan - Opening gets straight to the point and also demonstrates the 3DMG within the first 5 minutes. Execution was on point especially with the OST "Vogel im kafig" playing at the end.

Usually for me it's episode 2 that gets me hyped and into a series. ex. SAO, Your Lie in April, Kekkai Sensen, Higurashi etc.

I'm gonna say Owarimonogatari episode 1. It was brilliant and it was just 40 minutes of 2 people talking. But the dialogue was engaging, the visuals were fantastic, and the mystery & buildup were excellent.
