The Harlock Saga tells more about Captain Harlock. It delves deeper into the world of Galaxy Express 999, which makes the story all that more enjoyable.

AWAITINGTRAGEDY

Both stories are heart warming and sad, depicting all things that make good stories great: love, loss, good, evil, and showing that even at the darkest of times there is still hope - hope that people can change.

Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Space Battleship Yamato 2199

In the year 2199, unrelenting attacks from the planet Gamilus have forced all life on Earth into underground dwellings and raised radiation levels to near-toxic levels. The only way to clean up all this harmful radiation is by using the Cosmo Cleaner, which the Queen of the planet Iscandar has generously offered to humanity. Unfortunately, Iscandar is 148,000 light years away, but Earth only has one year before rising radiation levels make it uninhabitable! The only vessel capable of making the journey is the Yamato - a spaceship equipped with advanced technology and modeled after the famous WWII battleship. Can the crew of the Yamato make it to Iscandar and back before the extinction of all life on Earth?

Space Opera involving rather unconventional methods of travel. Instead of a Japanese Battleship, Galaxy Express is a train..

Aah, the nostalgia. I grew up on these two series. Both are basically stories that send our characters through the space into all sorts of weird events. Both series have somewhat similar feel. Though Starzinger has more action and fighting. If you enjoy old late '70s style of animation you should definietly check theses out. If you don't like old style animation you should still check out a few episodes of these awesome series. :P

The Rose of Versailles

The Rose of Versailles

Since General de Jarjayes of France’s Royal Guard always wanted a son, he brings up his only daughter Oscar to dress, fight, and behave like a man. When Oscar’s excellent swordsmanship wins her the honored position as bodyguard to Louis XVI’s new bride, Marie Antoinette, the Jarjayes household believes it can finally be proud. However, what nobody realizes is the pit of thorns the royal court in Versailles has become – with all its excessive opulence, it attracts not just those with status and wealth, but also those with ruthless ambition. To confound matters, Marie Antoinette turns out to be an airhead whose selfish actions are turning the starving population against her. Amidst the sordid schemes and terrible tragedies, and with the tide of history sweeping against the nobles, can Oscar protect her new King and Queen whilst upholding justice for the oppressed peasants of France?

If your favorite part of Rose of Versailles or Galaxy Express 999 was the bleak outlook on, and the conflict caused by, the HUGE gap between the wealthy and the poor, then you may enjoy the other. Additionally, both late-70s era titles have a unique (for anime) setting, and a huge influence on later works.
