Seen Kubo. Loved it...but it had a pretty bad ending. You don't just do that to your villain who committed mass murder.

I think the ending makes sense. The villain's defeat was meant to give him a chance on what humanity is like. He and his immortal family has clouded their mind with hate and contempt for humanity and humans attempts to gain power which is why they had the armor guarded. Kubo defeated him with love from villagers, the memory and love of his family. The armor wasn't what stopped the villain, Kubo took it off because just fighting him and killing him, if he could be killed, wouldn't do anything. Kubo's humanity and sparing the villain, even though he killed his parents, was what defeated him and gave him a chance to start over without memories and learning humanity.

Killing the villain wouldn't get that message of humanity, memories, and family across. Kubo is still orphaned but knows that he has a town full of people who love and care about him and chance to teach a dethroned god the best of humanity. Now I know what you might say about the Sisters. They were defeated out of self defense and there wasn't anyway possible at the time for Kubo to really try love and compassion.
