On the island of Opal live the world's most colorful birds. The birds have attracted a school for aspiring "Palettes" — wizards who have the ability to "borrow" color from one object and paint its qualities onto another. Young Cello has the potential to be a great Palette, but she just can't seem to control her power. As the end of freshman year approaches she's on the verge of failing, so she's going to need all the help her bird, Yoyo, can provide.

I am completely astonished that no one else has wrote a review for this amazing manga. I found it from looking at random manga, and this is definitely one of my all-time favorites. I simply made this myanimelist account purely so I could write a review. (Sorry this review is kinda long also, it's my first.) Now that I'm done with my rant, onto the actual review:

I know it isn't completely original, but The Palette of 12 Secret Colors really has a unique and mostly original story that is extremely refreshing. Imagine if there was a job read more

This is a refreshing shoujo manga that I would recommend to someone looking for a different setting and great character relationships.

Story: 7
The idea for this manga was really refreshing and unique. I love that the setting wasn't Japan - and don't get me wrong here, Japan is great, but it was nice to see a different setting from the one you would normally find in a shoujo manga. Also, while it is technically fantasy because of the palette color magic that is the premise of the whole thing, it was less about the magic and more about the relationship between not only the human characters, read more
