The number 13 is an unlucky number in some cultures. For example, the Winchester Mystery House has many examples of the number thirteen. (Google it for more information.)

If you have not known already, there are always thirteen episodes in each season of Vampire Knight. Do you think that there is a relation between the number of episodes and the theme of the story?

Before October, Vampire Knight was an 26 episode series, however, it soon broke into two seasons, since the anime was catching up to the manga. Making each season have 13, since half of 26 is 13.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with this.

Something like Soul Eater being 13 episodes may hold meaning (since it's very Halloweeny as opposed to just simply being supernatural); but Vampire Knight is just another anime with 13 episodes - like all the thousands of others, there's no real meaning behind it.

Actually, if you add up the episodes in Vampire Knight and Vampire Knight Guilty, the total number is 26, which is a common number of episode in many anime, no biggie.
