Long ago, [[NatureSpirit plant spirits and fairy-like creatures]] lived in harmony with mankind, but gradually [[HumansAreBastards humans began to rise toward greed and cruelty]] and the plant spirits immigrated to another world they dubbed the "[[MagicalLand Flowern Star]]". However, their legacy remained in people who truly knew the meaning of love and kindness, and not to mention some plant spirits that still believed in humanity remained on Earth and married human people, thus leaving some blood descendants scattered around the world. A [[TalkingAnimal talking dog and cat]] pair, Nubo and Cato, are sent to Earth to find one such person to find the magical [[MacGuffin Flower of Seven Colors]], the symbol of the Flowern Star's ruling family, so that [[SuccessionCrisis a new ruler can ascend the throne]].

In France, they meet Lunlun, a young [[ConvenientlyAnOrphan orphan]] who lives with her grandparents who own a flower shop. She turns out to be a descendant of the Plant spirits from her mother's side, so on Lunlun's 15th birthday party, they ask her to join them, and she accepts. They [[WalkingTheEarth travel all over Europe]] in search of the flower, helping people every step of the way, while being pursued by a [[GoldfishPoopGang bumbling pair of villains]], the selfish fairy Togenishia and her servant Yabooki, who want to steal the flower and rule the Flowern Star. Lunlun is also aided by Serge, a [[MysteriousProtector mysterious photographer]] who gives the people Lunlun helps packets of flower seeds which symbolize the lesson they've learned in the "language of flowers."

* TorosYFlamenco: Used in the Spain arc... but only in ''one'' episode, actually. And in further subversion, ''Lunlun'' had to disguise herself as such to save herself and her companions from a bull, instead of meeting a bullfighter.
