Anime/Manga which has dual identities like Durarara?

Well, if you have watched Durarara, you'd know what I am talking about.

Nearly every person has a secret. They look so normal from outside, but so many of them dual identities.

So, any suggestion in form of anime/manga like that?

I suppose the obvious recommendation would be Baccano!. Same author.

There's also Mawaru Penguindrum, except they all have skeletons in the closet rather than secret identities, but it's essentially the same thing since they're all not who they first appear to be.

Let's see what I have:

Anime

Hidan no Aria - Male lead may be normal but has a special power that's activated when a certain condition is met.

Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka - Lead character may look normal but is a zombie resurrected by a necromancer.

Ao no Exorcist - Lead character is studying to be an exorcist to avenge his father, but in true he's actually an offspring of a evil overlord that caused many tragedies that scarred the people around him.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu - Lead characters becomes a close friend of a popular girl after discovering her big secret by accident.


Manga

Orange Marmalade - Main girl poses as a human but is actually a hated feared creature by society in general.

Superior Day - Next door neighbor of the protagonist has a big secret that the one who discovered it life is changed drastically.

There's more but that's all I can think off the top of my head for now. So what do you think?

Actually, what I meant was more of like, the atmosphere Durarara creates.

Don't want any of the humorous kind.

And something which is more of a shocking thing.

I second Black Cat, Aria the Scarlet Ammo and Kore wa Zombie desu ka ? (though there's more than enough comedy, sorry ).
How about Freezing (main heroine has phobia of being touched but she's actually a legendary warrior of the school), Deadman Wonderland perhaps (main heroine is close to the MC but she's a mysterious assassin with a dark secret) or Nura : Rise of Yokai Clan (main character acts shy but he's actually three quart human and half yokai while showing his hidden persona) ?

I see, if you're looking for something a little bit more dark then about these:

Darker than Black - Main lead is said to be a foreign student but is actually a top class assassin feared and respected by secret organizations and authorities alike.

High School of the Dead - One of the characters is a timid socially awkward gun nerd, but when he picks up said weapon he turns into a fearless sharpshooting genius.

Kite Liberator - Girl is depicted has shy and clumsy but has a dark secret that no one but a few know.

Blood+ & Blood C - Girls are shown to live normal lives but have encounters that bring about their hidden "persona" so to speak.

What do you say?

Hmmm...dual identities...

Black Rock Shooter(OVA) Surrealist action where a girl tries to save her friend, and both have alter egos.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya- Might be too humorous for your tastes. Almost everybody has a secret, and the title character's secret is one that is purposefully being kept from her.

Ano Natsu de Matteru Romantic comedy. Female lead has a secret that the audience is told in the first episode. Another female character has a secret that doesn't fully get revealed until the last two episodes.

You could try Dance in the Vampire Bund. The main character leads two lifes, one with the Vampires and one with humans.

Definitely Baccano!. Although it starts off confusing, it's one of the best anime I've ever watched and I highly recommend it. In my opinion, it's better than Durarara!! and one of the series where I would actually recommend the dub over the sub.

Kamisama no Memochou has a similar atmosphere, but there aren't as much dual personalities. It was quite enjoyable, though.

Mirai Nikki is a pretty good one that fits.

If you're looking for the assassin type double identity, I'd recommend a manga called Dendrobates. It's short but good.
