I was asked a question today about Yoshitoshi's "Chushingura", and while looking for an example to answer it, found that one of his "go" names is not yet featured in his biography on Yoshitoshi.net
It actually does appear in this series
For reasons which are very mysterious to me, Yoshitoshi signed the 7th and 9th Acts of the 1860 "Chushingura" chuban series as "Gyokuo", whereas all of the other 10 acts are "Ikkaisai".
"Gyokuo" is rare, and used only occasionally in Yoshitoshi's very early career. (According to a comment by Fiorillo in the archives of this forum, it was only during the years 1859 - 1861)
