An example is when Simon and co. drilled to the planet's surface and gave us a sky view shot of the surface.

I'll just choose Yuri!!! on Ice for this question because it's an anime I recently finished and loved. The scene that got me hooked was in episode 6, seeing everyone's performances at the Cup of China Short Program. Of course I loved the series since the start otherwise I wouldn't have continued watching it but it was that episode when I really became entranced with the skaters' performances!

Gaara's flashbacks in Naruto. When Naruto would air on tv after One Piece I would immediately turn off the tv for some reason and go to sleep. One day I accidentally watched it and wondered why I never watched it before, I ended up getting hooked on the feels.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure when Joseph makes his introduction, or his first episode really.
Ero Pattishie, how was the night?
Did you like the sister sandwich for dinner?
Or perhaps it was too sweet,
that you want more vanilla in the morning.
I'll put extra cream just for you.
Now it eat well, we still have more desserts.

I chose to watch Chihayafuru at random, and I got hooked the moment I saw the first card swiped off the floor.

To Love Ru. The moment on how Rito grabs Lala's boobs is completely enough to hook me on that show.

I only watched Kuroko no Basuke because I saw this scene in a video.



I was also instantly hooked when I saw Shingeki no Kyojin 3D Maneuver Gear in action.

The "this is all I have" scene from Bakemonogatari, I was having a nice time watching the anine but after that I realize that Senjougahara was more than just a character and the Monogatari series was goine to be more than just an anime for me.

There is only one episode so far, but this scene in Persona 5 was pretty cool

Bardock's rebellion against Freeza got me hooked on dragon ball.

I could say I was hooked on many titles before watching them, randomly finding gifs that gave off a lot of promise.
Concrete example would be Tekkon Kinkreet, pretty much every scene was very alluring to me , more concretely:

There's been a lot of anime I enjoyed from the very beginning or had expectations for even before starting it, but Bakuman was an exception. I went in with 0 expectations and ended up having high hopes for it around the end of the first episode.

Death Note was my first anime and that scene with Light and Rey penbars finance made me fall in Love with Death Note and anime in general.
Also episode 1 of Yuu Yuu Hakusho the scene at his funeral when his friends and family grieve over his death that was by faar the best scene of the entire anime.
Go read the One Punch Man manga please, this awful adaptation by JC Staff is a disgrace.

BnHA
The first ep of bnha I watched is episode 7 and 8. I was hooked by the art, character dynamic, and story.
Then when I watched BnHA for real from first episode, Deku's backstory when it was revealed he doesn't have a quirk got me so hard I cried.

Made in Abyss
First ep, especially last scene when they show the whole landscape of the abyss and the town surrounding it. The ost was glorious too. Art was superb. Fell in love with the settings and premise instantly.

One Piece
Alabasta when Vivi screamed helplessly from the tower. Also the farewell.
Chopper's farewell with Dr.Kureha.
These are the first scenes that got me into One Piece so hard.

Fairy Tail
The closing of Erza's backstory arc (Tower of something)

SnK
Basically the infamous scene of Eren mom's death.

Haikyuu
That scene when Hinata still struggling even when all his teammates already gave up with such a huge score gap.

The very first scene of Trigun, with the bar shootout, was enough to get me hooked on the show. Now THAT'S how you start a show. One of the best scenes I've seen in any anime.

Definetly labeling vs Jason, it didn’t necessarily get me hooked on Tokyo ghoul but I rewatched it after, and I also absolutely loved the white whale scene in re zero and I don’t really know why lol

I'm not really sure I have a specific moment but rather a combination of elements that slowly lulled me into comfort.

It might have been Naruto vs Neji where Naruto used nine tail fox's power. Saw it on TV (had seen some episodes but not all) and made me start watching from the beginning.

Edit:
So do people have short memories or are most so young they just got into anime here?

I was on hiatus from anime. One day I flicked the tv into Animax on a whim (it's a tv channel for anime). On screen was BnHA episode 7. I ended up watching it and instantly got interested. I took note of the title.

Months later, finally I had a little bit more free time and the worst moments of my life had passed, I started to watch anime again and BnHA was the first anime I watched after a long hiatus. It instantly brought me back to anime fandom lol.

There's no specific moments, since I 'really' like a lot of animes but I usually get hooked on them when I can really associate with the feelings of one of the main characters, or just for the chills of epic fight scenes.

It's better this way.
A little lonelier,

The atmosphere in Hyouka. The liveliness, the whole school fest ordeal. Kyoto animation really does a great job at portraying all of this.

Err, how can you possibly pick just one scene? Though when I think about it, I can't pick one at all, I guess what gets me hooked is the story and the execution of it.
