Today’s first #kanji is #売.

It is listed under the radical of #さむらい(士), so make sure you write the top horizontal line longer than the next one because if you write them the other way around, it will become つち(土).
売’s original form is 賣 where 買 is under さむらい(士), and this 買 is its pronunciation indicator. Can you tell how to read it then?
