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.
Both shows are high caliber Anime space operas. I'm surprised no one has made this rec yet
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.

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 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.
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.
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...
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.
