Please don't recommend shows to Everyday, he'll just spout Psycho-Pass repeatedly back at you because the show you're recommending to him isn't even trying to do the same thing.
Kenshin is fine, just skip to the Kyoto arc after the Oniwabanshu stuff and stop watching after that. You will not miss anything relevant to the story since it's all anime filler that wasn't there in the manga, besides the one short story bit that they butchered in the anime to a point of irrelevancy. That cuts out about half the show, making the other half one of the better shonen anime out there. About 40 episode of non-stop goodness. And still subversive compared to regular shonen, including the shonen three, to this day.
