Really surprised no one mentioned Macross!

I think 1982's Macross has the best opening episode in any anime I've seen
Off the top of my head at least

Elfen Lied - Lots of gore but quite impactful

Attack on Titan - Simply great. And that soundtrack.....

Death Note - Perfect trailer for what to come

Guilty Crown - Especially the first 5 minute

Pandora Hearts

Hmm, this is quite hard question, but I think with me it would be "Ouran High School Host Club". I just absolutely loved its humor sense and the fact main heroine had actual personality which you could relate. (Because it sucks to be in elite school where you're treated like a peasant, yet she still owns it.)

Sword Art Online and Haibane Renmei has the best first episode. Made in Abyss first few episodes are quite lacking in my opinion.

Probably Domestic na Kanojo. The show might not be the best but that first episode is something.
And Sword Art Online had a pretty good first.

Attack on Titan - God-like hook with a superb OST to go along with it.

The Promised Neverland - The reveal was exceptionally done, and the sudden turn from a gentle, feel-good slice of life anime into a full-on horror/thriller ensured I binged the rest of the series in one visit.

Promised Neverland EZ. Went into it not knowing a single thing about it besides that it was highly rated, was not disappointed.

I'd say my two favorites are Attack On Titan's first episode and Your Lie in April's first episode.
