A batch of Clannad tributes

Dango Daikazoku forever!

Just a few tributes to possibly one of the saddest visual novel stories ever told, in the form of full opening music videos. I hope you enjoy!

Whenever we find ourselves finishing an episode of CLANNAD, we find ourselves treated to a really cute ending song – だんご大家族 (Dango Daikazoku). For me, I’m always treated to some tears for some reason after listening to it.

The only reason it gave off that sad feeling is because it’s a happy ending song for a potentially sad series, with all that drama the main character, Tomoya, is facing (with his mother dying and his alcoholic dad and all). Either that or I’m just a big softy deep inside…

Nice job, Kyoto Animation and Key Visual Arts. You created yet another series that touched my heart emotionally… and this is just the ending song!
