**Note: Work is totally taking so much of my time since we’re understaffed in the office. I write all day at work and I just feel too drained to think and write/blog whenever I get home lately. Hence, Undercover will be on hiatus for a while. I might pop in now and then to post something should I find the time and will to do so. Thanks~ **
Man, time flies by quickly, doesn’t it? Undercover is now 3 years old! Booyah~
Like my previous anniversary post, I’ll include a brief stats summary for the year that was and a quick preview of things to come. And of course, having a new header is my self-imposed requirement to mark this yearly occasion. ^_^

Lol, I still get a lot of hits from “hayate crossdress” as a search term. It’d be a shame if they won’t be able to find anything related to that. So here you go. xD ;P
Some amusing search terms:

Welcome to version 7.0! Watanuki, Doumeki, and the enigmatic Yuuko from xxxHolic will grace Undercover’s header until December.
So, what’s coming? Of course, the staples will remain: Anime season previews (Summer preview is in the works), anime series overviews, OP/ED themes posts, first impressions, and random babbles. A review/summary for Moribito book 2 (Guardian of the Darkness) is also on the way. It’s already in the drafts folder, so I’ll try not to be too lazy when I have days off work and finish that draft. Same goes with the series overviews for xxxHolic, Toshokan Sensou, Ookiku Furikabutte, Cross Game and a couple of J-drama digests. A fangirl post about Takagi x Satou from Detective Conan is also halfway done. The episode summaries for the Darker than Black OVAs included in the season 2 DVDs are also on the way, along with the long overdue summary for episode 2 of the Switch OVA (I plan on catching up and watching them this month). There also might be a series of special random fangirl babble posts this month (probably something to do with L’Arc~en~Ciel, seiyuu, and stuff). We’ll see how that pans out. I’m also thinking of catching up with Eden of the East, but that may take a while since I’m still stuck on episode 5. Maybe I’ll just wait until all the movies are done (how many movies are there again? Two?).
I had a bit of a setback with my blogpost plans for the previous year, so most of what’s coming are just restatements of that plan. ^^;; My schedule and workload is still crazy, but I’m quite certain that I’d be able to stick with updating the blog with weekly/monthly blog posts whenever I get some downtime. I’ll keep it at my pace so I won’t get burned out and still find enjoyment in anime blogging for (hopefully) more years to come. ;)
For the past 3 years, it’s been 170,000+ views, 1000+ comments, and 200+ posts. They’re not big numbers, but they’re more than enough to make me glad just knowing that Undercover has come that far.
~THANK YOU for your continued support! ^_^
