It was really long at the very start of thursday, but then it got easier after. Friday is usually more packed for longer.

Awesome! I went in 2013 but i pre-reg so I had no idea. 1 hour is fine for me. I like that the line opens at 9, 2 hours before the stuff starts which is nice.

I dont think it will looks like the past years because this year otakuthon start wayyyy more earlier than before.
Anyway, it always depends at what time you arrive. My first year I,ve waited for 40-50mins. But after that I just went pick up earlier and I wasnt waiting at all.

This year the con start at 11am (?) instead of 3-5pm so yyeah... It'll probably be something different in term of waiting this year imo.

This year, the line will be much more efficiently made! Considering the large amount of reg staff this year, things will hopefully go much more smoothly compared to last year's disastrous Pre-Reg line on Thursday that was taking decades to go through. Also, finding the place for the reg tables won't be as much as an adventure cause the reg room is right next to the merch room, to its left.

So, here's to hoping for a smooth line :^)

It took me less than ten minutes to get my pass today but I imagine that the lines are going to be insane tomorrow.

The registration line was not bad at all. Got there at 1, and got my badge about 40 minutes later.
For me, as long as a line doesn't surpass 400k people (Comiket sized lines), I can take it.

Took me about 1h or 2 to get my pass on Thursday this year.It's kinda always like that when you go really early on Thursday tho.

I came in around 5h15pm on Thursday and got my badge almost just a few minutes after I arrived in line. There was 2 peoples in front of me

Probably the fastest it took me to get my badge in the last 8 years lol
