Its taking Accel Worlds spot, which is historically a 2 cour timeslot. So that should get rid of any worries it may only be 12-13 episodes.

Our writer is in Japan, and thus wrote the article in Japan Standard Time. When dates are written with other time zones in mind, ANN tries to ensure that the time zone is listed (for example, EDT).

Pretentious way to say 13 episodes.

See, thats the problem. It doesn't mean 13 episodes... It means a quarterly timeslot that can be between 8-14 episodes. Its used to prevent confusion with the term "Season", which can be anywhere between 3 episodes and 52 episodes.

Its used in the Japanese TV industry for selling timeslots, so thats where its use come from.
