Yamato Maya is a second-year student at Haneoka Girls' High School and the drummer of Pastel*Palettes. She is also classmates with Yukina.

Prior to joining the band, she was a studio musician. Originally, Maya wasn't intended to be a member of the band, but was prompted in by Chisato due to their lack of finding a drummer, and after they had seen Maya without her glasses.

In the second season of the anime, she is a third-year student.


Maya has shoulder-length, pale brown hair with layered forelocks and a tuft of bangs  covering her forehead. She wears half-rim glasses over her dark green eyes.

During performances she removes her glasses. She adorns her hair with ribbons or accessories. Her outfit is mint and lavender themed, with her top styled to match Hina and Eve.

Her casual attire consists of a white tank-top paired with black pants that have thin suspender straps, brown finger-less gloves, and a long, dull blue jacket tied around her waist. She wears a beige newspaper boy cap.


A tomboy who appears awkward around other people, Maya isn't very social and does not take care of her hair and skin, and used to be a bit socially withdrawn prior to becoming a drummer. But around musical equipment she becomes ecstatic and is impossible to stop when talking about her beloved hobby.

Maya admires Eve for her looks and is also good friends with her, and Aya as well for her dedication on becoming a great idol. Because of her awkward nature, she is also often teased by Hina (unintentionally most of the time), and gently scolded by Chisato because of her unique "Huhehe" laugh.
