I am a fan of long running shows like Bleach, Gintama, HunterXHunter, One piece and Naruto (Interest level going down because of filler and unecessary flashbacks).

Most of the 12 episode series are usually rushed. There are some good ones in 24 episode series as well. In case of anime, i would say the more the merrier (that does not mean i want fillers).

I recall some short form heavy seasons in the past.

If a company is looking to promote their original material, and doesn't want to be concerned about how well the BD/DVD sales will go, the short form anime it just the ticket.

I guess that makes a lot of sense. What about decision to do 12 episodes instead of 24 is that purely based on money projections of sales?

Do you mean for short form series or normal length series?

For short form series, I would wager that more often than not, it is based on lack of material or simply because it is so easy to quickly green-light a second series (as an entire season can be produced in about the same time as a single episode of a standard length series).

For normal length series, assuming there isn't a lack of original material, I would say sales projections factor very heavily into the decision.
