It's 13 episodes if you check their blu-ray lineup. 緋弾のアリアBlu-ray&DVD Bullet.1 is 25 minutes while 緋弾のアリアBlu-ray&DVD Bullet.2-7 are 50 minutes.
BD1 is 1 episode, BD2-7 is 2 x 6 episodes = 12, so a total of 13.
Note: check 本編約25分 and 本編約50分.

I get the feeling that they will murder volumes 2 and 3, and they will end the series at v5. Like this:

Ep6 - v2, incident
Ep7 - v2, conclusion
Ep8 - v3, incident
Ep9 - v3, conclusion
Ep10 - v4, incident
Ep11 - v4, mission
Ep12 - v4-5, conclusion
Ep13 - v5, climax

The reason why I thought like this is because the way I've seen JC Staff worked before. In the case of KoreZombie, Dragon Crisis, Index first season, and maybe there's more, they faithfully adapted the first novels in slow pace as well, and then they rush the rest of the stuff when they're out of time. It seems to me that they don't plan ahead the episodes. Maybe the factor that Aria dominated the OP also made me think that JC staff don't give the other character much importance than Aria.
