Here is another version of the left panel. It's dated Meiji 36 (1903) and appears to be a memorial portrait of Ichikawa Danjûrô, who died in 1903. This would be after Kunichikas death, and in Waseda Museum it's listed as a work by an unknown artist
I don't believe that any of them was published as early as 1882. The one you found on the net seems to be from Meiji 31(1898) and may well be the oldest.
