It's been a long time since I've thought about anime in terms of "favorite characters", but a few stick out in my mind.

Although I think I admire the writing more than the character itself, Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist always struck me as a great character. Not so much because he had a particularly magnetic personality, but because his character arc was very deftly handled and delt with some surprisingly complicated and adult issues. His story was compelling and sophisticated to a degree, and that made him probably the most interesting character on the show.

I also have an obvious fondness for Alucard, if only because he's such a violent pervert and you rarely see that in an action hero.
