Another week of abysmal sales, though I'm going to go ahead and assume both TRC and Fairy Tail were not out for the entire week, which would justify their weak sales when both series usually sell relatively well.

Actually, Fairy Tail is in the top 20 popular manga here on MAL, with upwards of 6500+ readers, so it does have a steady following here on MAL. However, with the lackluster effort that came with the last few arcs (the manga had such a promising start too), people are beginning to realize this manga may be overrated (though that can be up to debate).

Alright Fairy Tail! I was so meaning to get into that; glad to see that its popular there. I think I can deal with any problem issues though, I like that art irregardless.

Sorry to disappoint you, but Fairy Tail's mangaka has just copied Eiichiro Oda's (One Piece) art style (he was his assistant), at least that's what it seems like.

Um, no. Oda and Hiro were assissatants of the person who made Rurouni Kenshin...

Um, no. Oda and Takei (Shaman King) were the assistants to Watsuki (Rurouni Kenshin) - Hiro never was an assistant to any manga-ka.

Sorry to disapoint you, but FT art, while a bit similar, is nothing like OP "art".

FT art style and details beat OP by miles. ;)
