2011/2012 Winter anime episode count.
This is a repost from his blog.
This season, the producers at King Records are continuing to differentiate between Blu-Rays and DVDs, with Mouretsu Pirates being released on almost double the amount of DVDs at a twice-monthly pace (as opposed to the monthly Blu-Rays), and Papakiki having its first episode out on Blu-Ray a month before the DVDs start. DVDs are the primary format for renting anime in Japan, so I assume they are trying to draw further lines between renters and buyers.
Otherwise the Blu-Ray-only experiments from last season don’t seem to have carried over quite yet, with most series still offering parallel offerings in both formats, or at best positioning Blu-Ray as the premium option with DVD as the cheap/common version with less extras.
