だんご大家族 (Dango Daikazoku)

So I started watching a new anime called Clannad recommended to me by Belldandy. Story feels very similar to Kanon and Air, but I’ve only watched one episode so far. Pretty good.

Clannad’s ED (ending song/animation) was so cute, I almost melted: (high resolution and low resolution respectively)

The song is called だんご大家族 (Dango Daikazoku), which translates to big dango family. Dango is usually translated to dumpling, but it’s not the dumpling you typically think about. When I think of dumplings, I usually think of 餃子 (jiao zi in Chinese or gyoza in Japanese). Dango’s are more like mochi, but not as soft. You can read more about them on Wikipedia. Here’s a picture of what a dango looks like:
