Why does everything I see point to Gaara as being slow? Just because he doesn't move during a battle does not make him slow.. If you watch closely, when Lee uses Renge, a move most of them are finding hard to follow, Gaara actually blocks most of the kicks coming at him, never mind the fact that he manages to evade the whole thing by the end of it and only Kakashi manages to catch that. Yet still, there's this stigma attached to him that because he carries that gourd and doesn't move much that he is physically slow and can't keep up in a taijutsu style fight... He may not know any techniques, but he can at least dodge, apparently faster than the sand can defend. I just want to know where this whole thing came from.. or whether I'm only seeing things when it comes to fandom and discussion.
