Without any doubt this is one of the best animated series ever done and my favored of all times.
The way they combine fiction and real facts of Japanese history occurred during the Mei Ji era make it more interesting.
What make it different from other Japanese series is that in this case the main character, Kenshin Himura, has a real purpose to fight for in order to mend all those terrible things he did in the past.
Another point about it is the way they combine drama, action, romance and comedy. The backgrounds and the music are just brilliant and exquisite. There's no doubt these series has one of the best soundtracks.
