I can't believe Akane from Ranma didn't make it. In one of the early episode she already snaps Ranma's neck or something like that.

Louise should definitely number 1. For Pete's sake Saito is always expressing his love for her but she still treats him like garbage.

Bit surprised to see Dokuro-chan took 11th place and just barely missed making the top 10. She does fit the bill for "Unreasonably violent" though and would have been my vote too. Not many other girls feel nothing about violently murdering you because they can just undo it in seconds.

Edit: That said, Index (who placed 21st with 58 votes) would also get top consideration. That may just be some bias spilling over though from how you could replace her with a rabid monkey and, outside of the scenes where she has to bust out magical Deus Ex Machina, things would play out very similarly.

She placed 12th with 139 votes.

Thank/blame the poor adaptation for that. The anime cut out a lot of the content that explains her thoughts and the logic behind her actions. Not to mention the butchered transition between S2 and S3 (as well as the mess that S3 in general).

She still got 24th on the list, if that makes you feel better.

Haruhi is violent? She might be a candidate for dragging Kyon around the school against his will but that's it.

I was thinking Taiga should be on this list.

Taiga placed 23rd with 55 votes, just ahead of another Kugyu role in Louise at 24th with 53 votes.

Kaname Chidori!!! Did she make the top 20? Even after she learns Sousuke was a child soldier with no social skills, she still hits him to kingdom come for every mistake (to be fair, his mistakes can involve guns and bombs, but still, learn some patience!)
And where is Akane Tendo? She was more than a bit ragey and violent. (Ranma constantly needled her on purpose, though).
I disagree with Tae Shimura at number 1--the only person she is especially violent towards is Kondo, and he doesn't know the meaning of "she's not that into you" (Man, seriously, she has a girlfriend! Very Happy)

I'm surprised Lum isn't in the top 3. After watching the show and one movie, she sure deserves that spot. Sheesh. Also Asuka doesn't really belong on the list if you ask me. At least not the Rebuild version.

Did Sonozaki spoiler[Mion] made anywhere into the top?
Thanks to her misunderstanding of the situation, she kinda spoiler[brutally killed a bunch of innocent people].

Edit:
Just found the link to the full list, she isn't there.

Hana from Prison School definitely deserves her spot on this list, yet I can't help but find her adorable.

I'm shocked Naru Narugesawa and Kaname Chidori aren't on this list.
They are the definition of "violent and unreasonable".

Naru? Totally. But lets be honest. Kaname has every right to be kinda pissy about Sousuke's behavior.

I am honestly quite sick of this crap. This misandric schlock is exactly why I despise Love Hina; if the genders were reversed, the police would've come in a lot quicker. There's a difference between slapstick and domestic abuse, and characters like Naru and Sakura Haruno zig-zag through that line like a NASCAR race.
