Pre-ます Form + ましょう as “Let’s VERB” or “Shall we VERB”
Verbs in this conjugation form are interpreted as a suggestive “shall we” or “let’s” meaning. In some cases, the ましょう form may seem too assertive; this is mediated by the more polite question form, ましょうか.

Example(s):

アニメを見ましょうか。
Anime wo mimashouka? (Shall we watch some anime?)

パーティーに行きましょう
Party ni ikimashou! (Let’s go to the party!)
