^Funimation's been on the production committee for several anime over the last few years. First that comes to mind is Fire Force, but there have been a few others IIRC.

Curious to see how well a musical translates to a manga.

Manga's being used to promote an anime. Usually it's the other way around.

That's usually how it works with originals, they get a (typically short) manga that comes out before the anime in order to give people a taste of the plot and get them interested in watching it. This is probably more important/common for original movies since they need to convince people to go and buy a ticket.
