Bessatsu Friend (別冊フレンド Bessatsu Furendo?) is a Japanese shōjo manga magazine published by Kodansha, aimed at teenage girls. It was originally conceived as a bessatsu, or companion magazine, to Shōjo Friend, which is no longer published. Bessatsu Friend is commonly known by the abbreviated name Betsufure (別フレ?) and is published on the 8th of each month.

Recently, a manga serialized in Bessatsu Friend named Flower of Eden was pulled from publication and recalled by both Kodansha and overseas by Tokyopop, after it was revealed that the manga artist, Yuki Suetsugu, had copied art directly from Slam Dunk and Real by Takehiko Inoue.[1] The magazine originally featured manga focused on romance, however with the start of publications by manga artists like Keiko Suenobu, it began publishing such that moved away from that main focus. Betsufure publishes manga by many well known manga artists, such as Miwa Ueda, Satomi Ikezawa, Ayu Watanabe, Fuyumi Soryo, Nanba Atsuko, and Keiko Suenobu.
