Death Note had me from the first frame, but other anime that had me at the first episode are Kuroshitsuji, Axis Powers Hetalia, Seto no Hanayome, and Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro.

Noir...among others. It's the series that made me pick up anime after GITS (all of it), of course. I still occassionally watch it . In English sometimes, for perverse, break my eardrum sense, reasons. Otherwise, It's always in Japanese.

SKIP BEAT! DEFINITELY. I marathoned that series even faster than I normally do, haha. Cross Game is another. Death Note is probably another one, though I started on the manga for that, so it's more like "first chapter." :)

Junjou Romantica, Loveless, Hayate, Clannad. Surprisingly, for my favorite anime, it took a few episodes to get into (Death Note, Hetalia, Higurashi).

Code Geass took until ep 10 for me to like it and not from episode 1 like most of the people here. Then I thought it was awesome after that. :P

As for the anime that got me hooked from ep 1:

K-ON!
Death Note
Clannad
Digimon (when I was younger)
Ouran High School Host Club
Shaman King

One outs.

Can't believe some people have been hooked on bleach from ep1. For me the first 20 eps or so were huge pain and i had to force myself to watch em.

Quite a few had me hooked but the main one that springs to mind is Kaleidostar believe it or not. It's one of my top 5 anime and I feel it is greatly underrated. Another for me would be Full Metal Panic, and it just grew on me as it progressed.

Usually long running series don't strike me with their awesomeness in the first ep, so shorter animes tend to have me hooked much much earlier. For me Sengoku Basara, Eureka Seven, Black Lagoon and Cowboy Bebop all had great first episodes that got me addicted to each show.

Shakugan no Shana - Pure awesome action already from the start.
Hayate no Gotoku! - Had me laugh almost constantly.
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu - Hmm pretty much the same as Hayate~.

Every 1st episode with a certain amount of win in it. Half of my anime list actually, if the first ep doesnt hook me and the second isn't making up for it, I usually dont bother to watch the rest.

Most epic 1st ep (in my opinion that is!)
1. Code Geass
2. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
3. TTGL
4. Gankutsuou
5. Death Note

*Kaleido Star* REeeally pulled me in, so that's the first one that comes to mind.
Also:
Toradora! (so much win)
Shakugan no Shana
and Soul Eater (although there was a slight wtf-factor there). lol
