Here's what happened.
I'd taken a break from anime post-high school because I was sick of a lot of typical weeaboo mentalities and behavior, and I came back in 2010 to watch this series called Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. I usually don't like ecchi series, but it had cool art (basically Japan's take on The Powerpuff Girls), badass women, and a soundtrack full of catchy electronica (by Teddyloid of "Me!Me!Me!" fame, among others). The show ended on a jarring cliffhanger, and despite there being an OVA, the OVA didn't really resolve anything (because it was a bunch of shorts set interstitially in canon). The fact that the OST teased a Season 2 just made the whole thing worse, I felt like I was being trolled.
Thankfully, JoJo's most recent season ended in a way where I would have been fine, had there not been any more to the series, but Season 4 is coming in April(-ish), so I'm pretty pumped.
