Cant find this Kanji

Hello folks, today i came up uppon a kanji u it seemed quite familiar, but after i tried to doublecheck it, i had to realize that i couldnt find it at all. I tried to look it up on wankani and jisho org was didnt suceed. On Wanikani it looks very similiar to 未 not yet kanji. Can anyone tell me what kanji this is? Is it probably another possible shape for an more common kanji? I leave a Images which one i m looking for plus the entire picture aswell for a bit context.

Heres the actual Kanji
a895dece-a07b-4125-a433-09fa98e584d9

And thats the entire picture for context

Thank you in advance for reading and helping.

It’s pretty common in its own right. It’s a jouyou kanji.

One tip for if you encounter this more often, Jisho lets you search by composing kanji from radicals:

Sometimes it can be a bit tricky to see which combinations you need exactly, like the 二 in there being a bit weird, but you can leave out the parts you’re unsure about and the kanji will come up as a suggestion regardless, listed by stroke count.

Or you can search by handwriting, even with my terrible handwriting-using-a-mouse skills this one is the second result to come up:

If you’re not sure about the stroke order, you can also use https://kanji.sljfaq.org/, it lets you ignore stroke order entirely

EDIT: For best results, write the right kanji, unlike what I did here :joy:

I just went to the fault (失) kanji since it looked similar, and then at the bottom of the page it shows you similar kanji.

Also (not that you need anymore answers!), I use the Shirabe Jisho app. Its drawing feature is easy with the touch screen, and I haven’t failed to find a kanji yet. AND it’s free! I use an iPhone but I would imagine it’s on Android too.

It seems that the meaning has already been found but in case you were curious about the stroke order, this will be helpful.
