Both shows are high caliber Anime space operas. I'm surprised no one has made this rec yet
Both is high quality space opera sci-fi anime with an awesome cast of characters and space battles.
Both Space Battleship Yamato 2199 and Terra E are remakes of the classic space opera anime.
Two anime created by Leiji Matsumoto and both are a remake of the original series, very strong shows full of space battles , massive destruction , and bravery to save our eternal beloved the earth, and then always the same artistic touch of the mangaka , let's enjoy.

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 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.
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...
another end of the world type anime

Both excellent reboots of 70s properties by excellent directors
A single ship battling a whole empire, a lot of great strategic space opera action...
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.
