It's not sudden though and it's not a complete 180.
Her entire life was her thinking Jack was the bad guy and Aku was a top Lad. Her life was KILL JACK BRING BACK GOOD. Then through time, she realised Jack wasn't so bad and she didn't 180, she just became KILL AKU BRING BACK GOOD.
It's not like she ever felt she was a villain or in the wrong. All her life she felt she was doing good, but she wasn't, and only now is she actually doing good.
I do get your point about the paragon stuff, I can agree there it's not been best handled but they do constantly drop hints that Ashi was "different", sort of hinting it was already within her character.
Of course, that doesn't really fit someone to be different with 25 years of indoctrination, things like her caring about Ladybugs would have been beaten out of her. I don't really buy that her entire life she spent with those doubts because really, it's not like she had much place to build those doubts when she was literally being life controlled and knew nothing else.
But that's a different point. The fact is they do hint Ashi was different and her character is seen as somehow having all that paragon stuff even when she was with Priestess. That's how they've wrote her
