The best thing about anime is how diverse its storytelling can be. While one anime is about saving the world from evil, another is about the drama of romance. These situations are great for attracting fans to each new anime series, but the drama is also a great way to fuel the more gossipy characters.
Most anime characters prefer to stay out of drama, but there are some that crave the chaos. These characters want to know everything that’s going on in the lives of their friends and family even if it means spying on them or watching from afar.
10/10 Ashido Is Obsessed With Love
My Hero Academia

For the most part, Urd helps her sisters when they truly need someone to lean on, but she has a tendency to gossip about them at the worst moments.

She even discusses the details of the date with her friend Umino, which isn’t the nicest way for Usagi to handle her jealousy.

After the class physical she even tells two of her male classmates that another girl in their class, Megumi, isn’t eating much because she is concerned about her weight.

4/10 Inuyasha Uses His Hearing To Get All The Gossip

Isshin also has a tendency to talk about Ichigo with Karin and Yuzu when he’s not around, which annoys Ichigo to no end.
