Yes, I agree this must be Kunitsuna II, a.k.a. Kuniteru II. The publisher seal belongs to Daikokuya Heikichi 大黒屋平吉, and the date seal is for 1857, 6th month.

As per the identity of the depicted figure, I believe it is Minamoto no Yoshitsune -- compare, for example, with this Yoshitora print with quite similar iconography:
