Looking to get into the series but only reason I haven't picked it up is because of the constant hiatus's that occur and I don't wanna be sucked in and it never get finished.

Is the Chimera Ant Arc a good place to stop? or after the Chimera Arc? I hear the "art work" in the Chimera Ant Arc is pretty bad sometimes and I'm just trying to get a grasp of what I should read and what I should completely avoid.

Also, most likely going to purchase the volumes so just a good place to stop reading is what I'm looking for.

The election arc would be a good place. It's the one after the Chimera arc.

Moved to Advice, Info Recommendations.

End of Chimera Ant Arc is an okay place to stop, but it kind of still leaves things a bit hanging, and there's some worthwhile stuff in the Election Arc, especially if you want to see some characters who weren't very present during the Chimera Arc but reappear in the Election Arc. That also coincides with the end of the anime.

Don't start the Dark Continent arc (I guess that's what it's called). It doesnt really go very far before hiatus (and tbh, started off fairly boring imo).

A good point to stop for the story is, like the others said, after the Chairman Election Arc. That would be after chapter 339.
The Chimera Ant Arc and the Chairman Election Arc have some really bad art, though. Not everything, but some chapters.

I would recommend watching the anime, if you aren't against watching instead of reading. It's one of the few series where I'd say that the anime is actually better than the manga. The last episode, 148, also ends at the point from manga chapter 339.
