    Spoilers of the manga, so if you haven't read the latest chapter.. don't read this.

    I've been thinking for a while and came up with something.
    Why would they let Gaara live? I think they let him live for a reason.
    Actually, I think he will have some part in saving Sasuke, somehow.
    Gaara is probably still needed at any point in the story, he has something important to do.

    Or they don't have any reason at all to let him live, and just liked the character. But it's nice to think about what big part for him is yet to come. Things would be very differend if he did die. Naruto's hate for akatsuki would become even bigger. Actually the same has happened to Asuma now he died. Naruto will hear it and wants to go after Akatsuki even more. They actually let something happen that also could've happened a long time ago with Gaara. I'm glad they did it now though. :nod I also think that Asuma's dead wasn't for nothing, so what will come of it? How will Konoha react and the people close to him.

    Your thoughts about this?

    ^^Agreed.

    It's my belief that Gaara will kill Diedra. As his final "purpose" in the manga persey.

    definitely, gaara will defeat deidara in the 4th ninja war.

    asuma's death will result to the improvement of team asuma. Shikamaru will benefit much from asuma's death, Asuma's death will be the fuel of shika's hatred.

    I am waiting to see how many changes will have a Shukaku-less Gaara. I agree with Leanne, thinking that Gaara is alive just for popularity reasons sound a little Lame (after all, giving a popular character an spectacular death make the fandom happy).

    Gaara Surviving was the final resolution to the "Gaara Story" Persay. When Gaara is little He wants acknowledgement (to be loved mainly), whether friends or family, but is Rejected -> He thinks he finds someone who cares about him, but finds out that person is against him. This leads Gaara to believe the only acknowledgemant he can gain is through the power of killing others. NAruto sets him straight, but Gaara's struggle is not resolved. Gaara becomes Kazekage, but is still unacknowledged by the people around him. The only one who seemed to believe in him was his brother. When Gaara saves the city with his last sand He is captured. Even if Gaara were to die there, he still wouldn't have been acknowledged "Face to face" by the village. As an audience we saw Gaara as a child in tears. To see Gaara Come back to life in a crowd of people who now admire and acknowledge him is the resolution to the child we were introduced to in the begining. Gaara's awakening was a beautiful sight. Yes, there is a reason to let him live. it was for a resolution to his childhood struggle. ​

    Gaara is alive for 2 reasons:
    - Kishi would have to intruduce a new KazeKage.
    - It was too early for Naruto friend to die.
    thus Gaara couldnt die.

    I think he will still be able to carry sand and control it with chakra. He just wont have that ultimate defense. For all we know he could get stronger after this and probably will. He'll probably become the most powerful Kazekage with Temari and Kankuro at his side backing him up. My thoughts ^.^

    There are a few possible reasons for why Kishi had Gaara live:

    1. Gaara's going to return to have a big impact on the series later on
    2. Kakashi's eventually going to use that reviving jutsu that he watched Chiyo use.
    3. Purely fan serivce.

    i think gaara will have a big role still maybe killing deidara or something like that but nothing too extreme also asumas death might make shikamaru into a great warrior like he should have been all along if he had only applied himself

    Naruto's nindo would have been unfulfilled if he was unable to rescue Gaara. In legend, Kitsune had to keep their promises, or they would suffer (and so would their power). In Naruto's case, he draws his strength from his bonds. The death of a friend would have been doubly painful for Naruto- he would have felt guilt and shame, and blamed himself.
    Aside from that, I'm sure they're saving the disillusionment of Naruto for someone more special to him (Sasuke). This would raise the tragic element, and would harden Naruto on a deep level- and it would give him the resolve to train seriously.

    Gaara's there as an example of what will happen if Naruto fails. However, this time, nobody will be around to sacrifice his or her life for Naruto.

    I think they saved Gaara because he's the Kazekage. Afterall, most Konoha ninjas would give their lives to save their Hokage. The same happened when Gaara died.

    Gaara will serve the purpose of showing that life without a bijuu is possible. And having a sure ally in Sand will be useful in the plot if a new world war does occur.

    Why do so many people think that Gaara's purpose is now to kill Deidara? I don't see it, and would be very disappointed if it happened.

    Gaara really doesn't have anything to avenge there... it's not like Shika taking revenge on Hidan for killing Asuma. If anything, Dei indirectly did him a favour by taking away the bijuu that had alienated him from everyone around him. If Gaara's going to seek vengeance for an act that was indirectly beneficial, he doesn't deserve it. He should be focusing on Sand, not on revenge. That battle is done and over with. And if Gaara couldn't kill Dei with Shukaku, how's he going to manage it without?

    a) Gaara is popular and thus worth alot of money. Kill him off makes him less valuable.

    b) He's a young character, Kishi won't kill any of them. Lee, Sasuke, Naruto, Sakura, Neji and Chouji have all survived "So close I could feel it" near death experiences.

    I wouldnt rule out gaara as having a role in sasuke's retrieval because:
    Gaara comments about Sasuke eye's which say "I want to confirm the value of my existence." The same thing that he used to say, so We could say that the old gaara is the same as sasuke, that wants to confirm the value of his existence through killing. So there is definetely a connection between those 3 characters.

    Still everything is possible
