Both are epic Space opera anime with a a strong cast of likeable heroes.
Remakes of space opera classics. Space Battleship Yamato is credited as being the first space opera anime (1974-5). Toward the Terra's manga began only a few years after Yamato (1976-80). Before the TV remake of Terra in 2007, there had only been a rushed movie adaptation in 1980.

The space opera genre and the fact they're both remakes of classics links them, obviously, but they also share a key plot point: the planet Earth. In both series the planet has become a barren, uninhabitable wasteland. Where as humans are forced to live underground in Yamato, humanity in Terra live in space; far away from Earth in order to aid the planet's rejuvenation. Yamato starts by beginning a desperate quest to travel 100's of light-years and back within a year to save the planet from DOOM, while in Terra psychic outcasts attempt to travel back to their home planet just for somewhere to call home.

A key difference between them is why their respective space wars are being fought. Yamato's war involves an alien race thinking of themselves as something akin to ancient Rome attempting to conquer the universe; Earth standing against them. Terra's plot deals with evolved humans (mutants; X-MEN!) that find themselves forced to fight a desperate war for survival against the rest of humanity, as well as the A.I. that controls them. There is a link in terms of middle-of-series 'shall we fight for the Earth or abandon it for another planet?' sub-plots, though.

As far as I'm aware, Yamato is more akin to a remastering than an outright remake: the opening, for example, being identical to the original. Since there never was a full Terra TV anime in the past, Terra went in a more of an 'expanded manga' direction. But, regardless, there is a very similar 'old school' vibe given by both series. There's no pandering or any attempt to please the otaku of today. Character-driven (slightly bland due to lack of 'playing up' to appeal), episodic with pit-stops on various planets and absorbing. There's ultimately something missing from both, in my opinion, but they're special enough to warrant a modern glance into the past.
Both are remake of the original series and made same creator, Leiji Matsumoto.
One ship sails across universe fight entire fleet of enemies army in order to find salvation and save motherearth. Main character is new recruits that given trust by the charismatic captain.
Both show many fascinating space battle which followed by good animation and background music. Capt. Harlock is fully made by top-rated CGI while Yamato 2199's CGI is nicely blended with 2D animation.
similarities:- space battles. romance, drama.

earth spaceships has a mission to safe earth. i loved both the series but Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is much better in terms of story setting, pace and characters. Both are must watch

Both are amazing space opera and I enjoy listening to the Yamato opening every time. You'd be really surprised how similar both are.
The setting for both the anime is completey different, one is in a game world while the other in space.

now here is where they are similar, they both have a strategist Shiroe and okita. They both have crews or guilds in log horizon that work together.
Space Battleship Yamato 2199 has more romance, action and a strong plot. Both are a must watch

Both are space related anime.
Difference is that heroic age has ''heores'', people in both the series are trying to save earth by seeking help from some ''noble'' aliens.
Space Battleship Yamato 2199 has more romance, better characters, better storyline. I found it much better than heroic age, u will be hooked from 1st episode.

Years after the major Hype for Yamato, rivaling Star Wars, Robotech/Macross eventually came into being.

They both sport fighters, a huge honking gun (Reflex cannon, but the Wave Motion gun was the FIRST BFG!), and large space battles.
They also have aliens assisting humans to get to space, Yamato was with a aliens still alive giving blue prints and equipment on a crashed ship. Robotech/Macross was with a crashed ship reversed engineered.

They have a theme of culture differences between Gamilions way of thinking, and the Zentradi's war culture in Robotech/Macross.

There is a entry level pilot who works his way up, be it Rich Hunter or Derek Wildstar (insert original name in Japan if it helps).

They both have over arching stories where earth is destroyed and then recovers when calmer minds take hold and control.

They both have incidents with the enemy crossing the line and they both learn the enemy is not JUST a faceless monster...
From the same original creator, the famed Leiji Matsumoto brings his characters to life with his many Space Operas, like Space Battleship Yamato and Galaxy Express 999, which both share rich dramas in space, attractive character designs (even better with the remake of Space Battleship Yamato 2199 over it's original adaption), and laser guns that go pew pew. I highly recommend anything Leiji Matsumoto has worked on, and Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is a good place to start, while his older classic works can be enjoyed later, sort of like enjoying the original Gundam series after, if you've only watched the latest incarnation prior.
another end of the world type anime

A single ship battling a whole empire, a lot of great strategic space opera action...
The latest editions of old space opera; Space Battleship Yamato and Mobile Suit Gundam.
Yamato 2199 is a remake of the original series whereas Gundam Unicorn is an installment in the same line as the original but they revive the retro feel with modern animation.
