I found the recent 120624 episode really funny. With the mission getting members to help Ikoma shop for clothes.
The core members were there and they looked like they were having fun.
And maybe because they're older, they're pretty good at setting jokes up.
Hashimoto making a miracle appearance was a plus.
And most of the time the members were just looking for clothes for themselves, and ending up getting Himura to pay.
Hey! Why are you all wearing new hats?!!
Even in the end, when everyone started guessing how much Himura paid, Saito accidentally made the scene funny.
It felt a lot like early AKB shows.
