I can't really agree that length alone makes it hard to follow. I myself viewed/read some of the later stories from time to time (episode 425 for instance), and was able to get into the story just fine. Heck, this is the first manga series I even bothered picking up.

Granted, I wouldn't pass it off necessarily as beginner or standers material, but maybe inbetween standers and hardcore.
