Perhaps the first reason for recommending these together is their shared origin; both Legends of the Galactic Heroes and The Heroic Legend of Arlslan are novels written by Yoshiki Tanaka. Tanaka is a popular Japanese novelist, and studios seem to take great care when dealing with his work.  I imagine it's similar to whenever Dune or Lord of the Rings get remagined.

While one is a science-fiction epic set in space and the other a fantasy legend in an Arthurian era, both are mature studies of war and human nature. They feature military geniuses as their protagonists, and explore issues of loyalty and competence.  Arslan is a little less dry than LotGH, but both are solid series that deserve attention.  If you enjoyed one, you will probably enjoy the other.

Both anime have big brain military action. Legend of the Galactic Heroes works on a larger scale of action while Alderamin on the Sky is more close up small scale battles--at least smaller than space since this anime leads towards fantasy rather than sci-fi. Legends of galactic heroes had a big mix of political and battle tactics, with a larger focus on politics. If it was the battle tactics that got you going in Legend of Galactic Heroes than I highly recommend Alderamin on the Sky. They cover that in just about every episode. Sure, it still touches politics here and there but battle tactics are this anime's main focus. I say if you liked either of these anime, that you go give the other a try. Personally, both are in my top favorite anime.

Tytania

Tytania

Humanity has stretched its reach into space and has settled onto a number of planets. For the past several hundred years, though, most of man’s territory has been politically and militarily dominated by the Tytania clan. However, their grip of power begins to shake when an admiral from Euria, Fan Hulic, preposterously manages to win a battle against an armada commanded by a Tytanian duke. Now wanted by Tytania, Fan Hulic flees from one planet to another. His travels will lead him to many places and many people, all of whom finally have hope that the hated Tytania can finally be defeated.

Oblithian Oblithian says...

Both are space operas similar in tone and themes (Corruption, betrayal, power grabs). Where as Die Neue is a remake of Legend of Galactic Heroes, Tytania is more of a spiritual successor, with less focus on space armadas.

Tytania isn't as good as Die Neue, and could have been spectacular, but if you like the theme of Die Neue you would probably enjoy Tytania as well.

Vut if you Loved Tytania, you absolutely will want to watch Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Overture to a New War

Having recently acquired the title of Count, Reinhard von Lohengramm is considered increasingly dangerous by the highest officials of the Galactic Empire.

In the Free Planets Alliance, Wen-Li Yang's friend Jean Robert Lapp intends to propose marriage to their mutual acquaintance, Jessica Edwards. Wen-Li has only just returned home, but his respite will be all too brief: the Alliance soon hears of the intended Imperial invasion, and the man once more finds himself in a fleet headed for combat.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes: My Conquest is the Sea of Stars

Legend of the Galactic Heroes: My Conquest is the Sea of Stars

Imperial Admiral Reinhard von Musell is an ambitious, aspiring young admiral within the Galactic Empire, who has earned the animosity of his peers; they believe that he has reached his position only due to his sister’s influence with Kaiser Goldenbaum, earning him the nickname of "the Admiral under the skirt." Meanwhile, Alliance Commodore Wen-Li Yang, fresh from his heroic victory against overwhelming odds at El Facil, has just been given the unenviable assignment of military advisor to a self-assured superior officer. Both of these Galactic Heroes, on opposite sides of the conflict, face the same task of having to overcome their superiors’ suspicions and win the day at "the 4th Tiamat Battle" of a 150-year-long war.
