The works of Makoto Shinkai - including 5 centimeters per second, the garden of words and children who chase lost voices. Shinka's works are often less saturated than similar anime, preferring to use more realistic, photographic colors in general. He reserves more contrasting palettes for the emotional climax and the many set-pieces of sky, stars and ocean that appear in his films.
Chinese posters produced during the Mao-era
have surprisingly diverse color palettes - not only stark red but warm, soft colors to bring the bright accents into relief. The color design is very intentional and highly stylized, so generated colors may not match your input exactly.

If no colors are locked Colormind will generate color palettes at random.
If you have a specific starting color in mind, pick that color and lock it. The location of the color does matter, so experiment with different placements.
If you have two complementary colors, try placing them at the opposite ends of the palette. Colormind will tend to generate nice intermediate values.
If you want more variety try placing contrasting colors closer together, colormind will then tend to create triadic and other more complex color schemes.
