Remakes of classics and made by 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.
Shows 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.

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  read more

Both are amazing space opera and I enjoy listening to the Yamato opening every time. You'd be really surprised how similar both are.

They're both in space. That is all you need to know.

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 stories are focused on lone ships and their crews trying to accomplish seemingly impossible goals in a world torn by war and with enemies chasing them across the universe. With background romance and politics, huge war and long space travels, both series feel very similar.

Both anime are about ships.

When i was watching AZ, it reminded me for Yamato. Both animes have space battles and compicated relations between the characters. You can see in both animes battles for power and the intension to bring peace. I think that if you liked 1 of them, you should check the other one too.

Both are high-budget OVAs belonging to iconic anime sci-fi franchises.

The main plot focus of both series is relatively simple and essentially the same : embarking on a journey through space on a quest to retrieve a mysterious item said to have the potential to alter the fate of humanity.

One difference is that the divide between "good and evil" in Gundam Unicorn is much blurrier and less apparent compared to Yamato, never really portraying any one faction as good or evil, although Yamato does feature some villains one can genuinely sympathize with.

Both OVAs have stellar animation quality and amazing soundtracks  read more

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  read more

Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is a stunningly beautiful remake of a classic sci-fi anime from the 70s, we see the beloved crew of the Yamato and the dramatic ship-to-ship battles in modern animation. It adds new details too for more world building such as a more expansive history of the characters from the original, new crew members not seen in the original and more alien races in the Iscandar arc than just the Gamilas and others.

While the manga of Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin is a remake of a classic sci-fi anime from the 70s, as of now, the OVA adapts the several-volume-spanning  read more

Epic classic space opera.
Humanity is kept repressed underground by alien attacks, which have wiped out Earth's surface.
With the help of an alien technology that can harness the infinite power of the universe, with risks, a selected cast of determined and competent people, ranging from teens to elders, incorporate it to their vehicles, and reach higher horizons, fighting versus entire armies, which are not pure evil, but mostly facing a grave environmental problem by taming the universe through terror.

There is some strategy involved, but the main crew is still plot-armoured, and the solution always ends up being to ram the enemy!  read more

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.
