Also, what is Idoling? Is it an AKB thing or something else?

I've read a lot about them for a month now and watched two stages (A3 and K3) and fell in love with them. I already purchased two AKB items aswell (A1 CD and K3 CD)
Now I have two questions though, I've read through the original AKb48 thread in the Music forum and heard a lot of people talk about Request Hour concert DVDs. Now I would love to buy one of those myself, but all the usual sites I go to (Yesasia,Cdjapan,HMV,ebay) don't sell them. Where do you buy those concert DVDs? Or do you need a japanese friend to buy it for you and send it over?
Also, I heard that in the stage performances the girls lipsynch the songs, but I also heard that you hear them sing live in the LODs. So what is it? I think it's a shame that they cut the MC parts for the stage DVDs and dub the songs with the recorded audio (or so it seems), I would be happy to buy real "live" stage DVDs.

Request Hour 2008 is sold out, and 2009 was too, but it's back in stock (re-print) - you can find it here:
https://www.pre-cam.jp/akb48/shop/ <-- "「AKB48 リクエストアワー セットリスト ベスト100 2009」" ￥16,800 - (This version: 4 concert DVD's + 1 Making of DVD -- The limited box set version had a box, 4+1 DVD's like aforementioned title + PB + picture magazine + 5 random photos)
AKS releases their DVD's through their own store, so you won't find post DefStar items from AKS in other stores like YesAsia, CDJapan, HMV, Amazon etc. Singles and such are a different matter though.

But thanks anyway! I wish I had been an AKB fan 2 years ago....
But I'll keep on track with future releases at least lol.
I have another question to ask you guys. When you begin to develop an interest (aka obsession) with an idol/idol group don't you feel the need to buy everything they've released so far so you'll be "up to date" and armed for future releases?

That's where deputy services or friends in Japan comes into play
And .....yes.. I've been trying hard to "complete" my AKB48 collection - but I'm still not there yet, just need a handful releases more, but then always when I am going to get those, something else jumps in the way - either "limited", "special", or "must have" item that costs far too much and as such I move ahead with the speed of a turtle...

If there are certain songs from those stages I want to listen to, I just pick the ones I think have the best live performance, and go with that. Would be nice to have studio recording version, but I'm OK with a live performance and tons of loud wota chants (if available)

Why AKB photos (mostly BLTs an gachas) are so darn expensive? Till now I was buying MM photos and they were ~4$/each. Yesterday I was browsing trading forum on Stage48 and I'm slightly shocked - 10, 15 and even 30 bucks for one photo? At first I thought that some of them are extremely rare... but most of them? Even thse for their 2010 callendar?
