There's a lot of capacitance.

Gate charge is what you really mean...capacitance can be misleading because it ignores threshold voltage. After looking at that Fugi Electric line, it seems they require hundreds of ohms of gate series damping resistance- because of the bipolar current gain multiplying the lead inductance reflected into the gate circuit most likely- and this explains the negative bias requirement, as a lower impedance pulldown would shunt the Miller transient- at turn-off.
