gdgd Men’s Party is based on the CGI project gdgd Fairies. The franchise made its debut as a 12-episode short-form show in the Fall 2011 broadcast season. A sequel series, gdgd Fairies 2, aired in Winter 2013.

Crunchyroll streamed gdgd Fairies as part of their simulcast lineups. They describe the show as:

pkpk, shrshr, and krkr are three fairies who live in Fairy Forest. They meet at their house in the forest to chat, use magic freely in the Room of Spirit and Time, peek into other worlds and imagine all sorts of stories at Dubbing Lake, and just have tons of fun! Come and spend some quality gdgd time with the gdgd Fairies!
