"(I presume) Kunisada"
Well, the censor seal definitely reads 'Dog/2', and for this form of censor seal, that dates it unambiguously to 1862. ('Goat' and 'Monkey' are the only problematic ones for the 1859-1872 period of this form of seal.)
It's definitely signed 'Toyokuni ga', so given that Toyokuni III (also known as Kunisada I) died in 1865, I would definitely say this is by him.
