The pans have the color name and number as do the dividers, but the box and colors are labeled in Japanese. There is no english color name in the box, but a quick google search will show you the color names easily from any of the reviews from other buyers that purchase from a different vendor/store or site whose set came with an actual english written color chart. The lid has a color chart in Japanese, but it is just common sense to realize it and fill it with the colors since each provided box has the color number that matches the divider number and the number in the bottom of the pans!! The pans are separated by cardboard dividers that are part of the bottom of the box so it minimizes cross contamination of colors. However the pans are loose and if you tip over or drop the box they will fly out of it; nothing that can't be fix with a glue dot or magnet strips (like some other sets have). Also, I have notice in other reviews from other vendors/stores or sites that some of these sets come shrink wrapped and even some even have the paints shrink wrapped; mine were not. In fact the whole set came in a plastic bag (the kind that has removable adhesive in the end flap and the flap is folded to the back. However my paints came intact and without a problem. Delivery was fast and the item even arrived ahead of schedule.
As for the watercolors themselves, they are very pigmented and activate easily with water. Although these are quite opaque (especially when built up) and may not be ideal for artists who prefer transparency. But at $30 I can't complain. Another drawback is that these watercolors are not matte. It is easy to see that they are quite glossy when their opacity is built up. This is the manufacturer's intention.
I would like to point out that the pans can be purchased individually in case you empty out a color so there is no need to worry about purchasing an entire set again. This set isn't perfect and you may not even need it. But it makes a great collector's item. I'm sure any artist would appreciate this as a gift but I definitely believe this set would be best as a beginner set, due to its affordability.
The washes you can make with these are perfect for many types of art projects. The colors come cracked sometimes with watercolor paints so don't let that be a discouragement. When you apply water to the individual color trays they reform back into a solid piece and will dry in its tray just fine. Our family enjoys using these to make handmade greeting cards. We enjoy spending the time together and these paints make it easier to have a consistent look across our work when multiple people are sharing the workload. It's just too easy to use. These were worth the price and like someone else mentioned, they tend to keep you painting when you should be sleeping!
