While many of the women in shonen fighting shows tend to have battles on a scarce occasion, Fairy Tail is different because the lead heroines of Lucy and Erza have had a good number of battles in respect to the currently 230 chapters that have been serialized. While you have question the accuracy of anime wiki sites, Fairy Tail Wikia has mentioned that Lucy has only lost 3 of the 19 battles she's been in so far whereas Erza only has lost 3 of the battles she's been in so far.

Fairy Tail is good, but... It's not a favorite.

It tries too hard sometimes on the humor part.

I don't see how gender really matters. A fight's a fight.

Yes, but japan is quite sexist remember and mangakas are generally too busy to read a lot of series.

one thing I've noticed about the series is that the Main hero has never really won a major fight on his own.

Yeah Natsu dose most of the fighting and sure enough always lands the final blow but just about every time he has gotten help from someone.

Manipulated by Happy into a winning emotional state.
Fire Arrows from Lucy
Big heapin mouthful of Etherion.
Back up from Gajeel
Extra Spicy Gold Flame from Gerard

'the level of work put down on more than just the main character.'

The fact that they all have somewhat leading roles..

That it deals with real team work...

this what makes it better than crap like Naruto, and Bleach.

I like how the story actually progresses in fairy tail, not like in bleach where it takes forever to reach the final boss, only to be disappointed by how he was beat. The girls fighting is pretty cool, most anime have girls doing nothing but getting saved or protected.

Don't forget about plagiarizing One Piece.
