  • MKLee did you have suggestions for specific films or TV shows that you would like to see considered? – derBruderspielt 6 years ago
  • I was thinking of films like Brave, Frozen, Moana, Naucissa Valley of the Wind, Lara Croft, etc. As for Tv shows, maybe Game of Thrones, with a focus on Arya and arguably Sansa and Margery. Perhaps some anime like Fairy Tail and Mahou Shoujo Madoka. – MKLee 6 years ago
