We had the honor of interviewing Ezra Weisz during Anime Los Angeles 2019! Intrigued by his involvement in the Miraculous Ladybug series, we asked Ezra on some insight on what goes on behind the scenes of Miraculous Ladybug! All this and more on our interview:

Official Miraculous Ladybug Store | Santa Monica, California

ZAG studios open its door in 2015 in Glendale, California and since then, the studio kept on expanding. Much like their beloved hit TV series, Miraculous Ladybug, they’ve branched out to various forms of media, such as comics, magazines, TV series, Youtube shorts, and even an upcoming motion picture.

Now they’re opening their very own store in Santa Monica, California

Located at 3002 Main St Santa Monica, CA 90405, USA

STOP! Don’t run out the door yet, the store has yet to release their grand opening date, although ZAG did make an announcement stating that their store would be open by winter 2018, it never came to fruition.

We stopped by to learn that building is, in fact, closed to the public and under construction.

Although the store is not yet opened, there’s no doubt Miraculers (Miraculous Ladybug fans) are already saving up in order to prepare for what awaits for them inside ‘The Miraculous Ladybug store’.

But if you don’t want to wait, their online store is open and accepting orders!

Keep your eye for more exciting and exclusive Miraculous Ladybug updates here on The Kitsune Network, we already have another Miraculous Ladybug guest interview in the work, stay tuned!

Even though ALA had exciting parties and exhibits to attend, the most eventful part of the weekend, occurred throughout the early morning hours of Day 3; Sunday. A man, now dubbed the Anime Los Angeles stalker, targeted a¬†con attendee’s car and set it ablaze.

The game is a world unto itself: filled with sword fighting, monsters and mystery, where the stakes are life and death. Kirito and an ensemble of diverse characters must fight their way through this hostile environment while making lives for themselves in the fantastical world that is known as Sword Art Online.”
