Founded three generations ago under the calm moonlight of the western shores by Japanese immigrants, Tsukitani, the Valley of the Moon, was a small but tightly-knit town where everyone knew everyone else and people of all types happily coexisted in harmony. But when two of the richest families in the state saw the sleepy Tsukitani's potential (for two very different reasons), they began to clash head-on. What will become of the valley?
- de Fortuné family - 8 Hodgson Road
The de Fortuné family has always sought money and power, and they had always won. So when Nicolas and Marie decided they wanted to transform Tsukitani into a huge private estate, they expected nothing less than utter surrender from the people. Unfortunately for them, they now face stiff competition from the Korolev family, another rich household with reversed moral compasses. Will the de Fortunés emerge victorious as always, or will Tsukitani be the name of their downfall?
- Fujiyama family - 20 Maibara Circle
One of the first settlers, the Fujiyama family has been around since the beginnings of the town three generations ago. Even more amazing: the first still lives to tell the tale!

Will Chihiro lose the favour of her grandparents?

- Korolev family - 10 Maibara Circle
One of the two feuding families trying to change Tsukitani, the Korolev family hopes to transform the sleepy town into a developed society.

- Mage family - 1 Forrest Gardens
This family of witches/wizards recently arrived in town so that the kids could practise their spells in peace and quiet. But Peter and Paula have to deal with an increasingly rebellious teenager and two feuding twins. What exactly is keeping this troubled bunch together?
This old hermit lives isolated from the rest of the town, where he finds peace and quiet amongst the little-visited lake in the valley's southeast. It is a mystery as to how long he has been there. There are urban myths suggesting that the Old Man fled to the lakes because he lost his daughter many years ago. Others say that he is many centuries old and lives by the lake because of some sort of rejuvenating properties of its water, and that he was there even before Kohei and Naoko Fujiyama. But no one really knows...

How long till he drops the ball?

- Vampires Anonymous household - 13 Gekkou Boulevard
These vampires are some of those that hate being vampires, hence the "anonymous" in their group name. They are charitable, you know - they just took in little Johann last week! Yes, they did attack a certain Daisuke Suzumiya that happened to come across them one night, but it was necessary that time - they were starving! Honest!
