    It is most likely to be just groups from Japan considering overseas groups have not had their own singles (if you exclude JKT48 at RH 2012 though). Reshuffle won't be held since they had it just at TD 1830m concert. Graduation is something no one knows, but not at every concert graduation is announced.

    But they have has JKT over who had not had their own official single so we may well see them and maybe SNH48 too, will just have to wait and see......

    ^^They could just 'appear' during the whole group shows for advertisement or something. Like in the Kouhaku

    Back again!

    Is it possible to purchase BLTs from outside of Japan? And is it even remotely possible to purchase old BLTs now that include photos XD?? (I doubt it).

    But is there a good place to just purchase some of those old BLTs? I'm quite in love with the photo shoots :inlove:

    Your best bet to get old BLTs are to check out yahoo japan auctions if you live outside of japan... or you know someone in japan who can go to stores like TRIO and the likes to find old BLTs/Theater photo sets.

    Thank you!

    Is there a way to order future BLT releases (AKB collab ones) from overseas (assuming I use a proxy)?

    When in the year do AKB48 members usually get their new profile pictures?

    what exactly are the Waiting Stages?

    also, when did Team Surprise's stage debut? it's not included on AKB wiki pages.

    Waiting stages are intermediary stages. It is the buffer period for the next stage to be prepared: lyrics, music, song and all.

    Team surprise debuted last year, and they released a new song (a single actually) of their stage every um... Week? I can't actually remember the frequency...

    oh ok, but for the most part the new stages would start almost immediately after the previous stage was completed, so how come it's been over three months without new stages?

    It takes quite a while since one man is the lyricist...
    The previous stage also took a long while. So don't expect a new stage to just appear so soon. Be patient.

    yeah, in last team shuffle, they just continue with the old stages until new ones are out and that took 6-8 months before all three teams got them.

    Right now, SKE's S4 iis supposed to be the first to finish follow by N3 and the AKB teams.

    It's doesn't help with all the sub units, soloists, and singles.

    Some time I just wish Akimoto would just start to hire some lyricist to help with the load, heck let members do them would be fine for me, I mean we still haven't seen anything from AKB's literature club and Akimoto mention before that some members has talent to be writers and lyricists..

    ok thanks for the information. it did occur to me that their singles used to just be songs from stages, but now he has all the single with all the b-sides to deal with, and then with the studio albums now and all the sister groups and sub-units...how does he/they do it all? which actually leads to my next question:
    their last.fm biography (i'm not sure where it came from) says that they perform once every weekday and twice on Saturday and Sunday. so my question is, when do they have time for life? or to record new music? do they have their breakfast then go to the theater to rehearse and then perform?

    The theater stage happens everyday on 6:30 and there are 2 shows (sometime 3) on Saturday and Sunday.

    In the beginning, they don't have outside works so they meet up after school, practice, then perform. So think of it as an after school activities.

    The original idea was to have 2 teams of 24 members in rotation with bench members, then it changed to 3 team in rotation + KKS performances, then 4 teams in rotation + KKS .

    And now they change back to 3 teams with bench members + KKS.

    Top members can't make their rotation due to outside work was a huge problem for past 2 years which leads to Team A performing far less than TK and TB (in a ratio of roughly 1 : 2 : 3.5) because TA can hardly get 13-14 member together at same time and fill the other holes with KKS replacement. Which leads to more performances for TK, TB, TK, and Team KKS.

    Either way the top member will find time to usually make about 2 stages a month.

    They just keep working hard and take a few hours break when they can.

    Top members like Yukirin, Takamina, Mariko, Kojiharu, etc usually get once or twice full-day off in a month.

    Oh ok so the teams take turns performing, it's not like every single member performs everyday. That makes more sense. Thanks for the info! Sorry if these questions seem dumb I'm just not very knowledgable about them yet.
