I have seen several of these before (as individual chuban prints). The Ushiwakamaru, the Uesugi Kenshin, Oniwakamaru with the carp, the Saito underwater fighting scene. Others I think I have never seen.
They are well-known stories that Yoshitoshi illustrated a number of times, and in a similar way. For example the pose of Ushiwakamaru in the Gojo Bridge triptych
The year of the series is Meiji 10 (1877). The seal on that final print is complicated, it might say 'roku' (6th month) but that is only a guess.
