Great Dango Family (だんご大家族, Dango Daikazoku?) is the ending theme song of Clannad, and was used from On the Hillside Path Where the Cherry Blossoms Flutter to Another World: Tomoyo Chapter. It was released in the album Mag Mell / Dango Daikazoku on 26 October 2007. It was performed by Chata, written and composed by Jun Maeda, and arranged by Takumaru. It uses the melody from Nagisa's theme song.

Great Dango Family is often sung by Nagisa Furukawa. She sung it to show Fuko how wonderful the Dango Family is, and Fuko immediately plagiarized it to create a starfish song. In the episode A Hidden Past, finding an old Dango trinket in her shed prompted her to sing happily, which earned her a label of embarrassment from her father. She also decided to sing it at the end of her stage performance in the episode Two Shadows, without concern for the anticlimax that it caused.

だんご だんご だんご だんご だんご だんご 大家族
だんご だんご だんご だんご だんご 大家族

やんちゃな焼きだんご やさしいあんだんご
すこし夢見がちな 月見だんご
おすましごまだんご 四つ子串だんご
みんなみんなあわせて 100人家族

赤ちゃんだんごはいつも幸せの中で
年寄りだんごは目を細めてる

なかよしだんご 手をつなぎ 大きなまるい輪になるよ
町をつくり だんご星の上 みんなで笑いあうよ
うさぎもそらで手をふってみてる でっかいおつきさま
うれしいこと 悲しいことも 全部まるめて

なかよしだんご 手をつなぎ 大きなまるい輪になるよ
町をつくり だんご星の上 みんなで笑いあうよ
うさぎもそらで手をふってみてる でっかいおつきさま
うれしいこと 悲しいことも 全部まるめて

だんご だんご だんご だんご だんご だんご 大家族
だんご だんご だんご だんご だんご 大家族

English

Dango, dango, dango, dango, dango, a great dango family
Dango, dango, dango, dango, a great dango family

The naughty fried dango, the kind red bean dango
The Mid-Autumn Festival dango tends to dream a little
The prim sesame dango, the four dango on a skewer
Everyone, everyone comes together and it’s a family of 100s

The baby dango is always within happiness
The aged dango has its eyes narrowed

The chummy dango hold their hands together and make a big, round ring
They build a town on the dango planet and everyone laughs together
The rabbit is trying to wave in the sky; the huge moon
Is rounding up everything, happy things and sad things, too

The chummy dango hold their hands together and make a big, round ring
They build a town on the dango planet and everyone laughs together
The rabbit is trying to wave in the sky; the huge moon
Is rounding up everything, happy things and sad things, too

Dango, dango, dango, dango, dango, a great dango family
Dango, dango, dango, dango, a great dango family

Dango, dango, dango, dango, dango, a great dango family
Dango, dango, dango, dango, a great dango family

Remixes

Great Dango Family has come to be one of the most popular songs from the Clannad series.

The song has also been very popular on YouTube. YouTube user rythemdestiny released the full version of the song 2 November 2007, and since then it has recieved nearly 2,300,000 views. Also 14 September 2006, YouTube user "noritomi" released a cover of Nagisa[1], the theme song of heroine Nagisa Furukawa. In the five years since it was posted, the remix has received nearly 255,000 views. One of the more popular rock versions of the song was an off-vocal version released by "andryou" in April 2008 as Dango Daikazoku / Chiisana Te No Hira Rock Version.[2]
