Perhaps the most well-known American to ever work in anime (specifically anime production), Jan Scott Frazier is something of a legend among American fans. We finally got a chance to catch up with Jan, and she regales us with stories from the 90s, including the tumultuous making of Genocyber, working under Noboru Ishiguro and more! Plus, Twitter time!
