I remember seeing a lot of hate for this series sometime pre-2020.

Honestly, I don't get why. DF has some of the best examples of good animation I've seen in some of the most unexpected places (for example: Zero Two's suppressed laugh in the first episode), it had a good soundtrack, and its story wasn't bad at all.

Why did people dislike it?

P.S. WE ARE LIVING IN THE 20s WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Because the ending was incredibly rushed and nonsensical.
    It was well received in the first half, even longer. It was less hate and more disappointment. What couldve been a great show devolved into something strange, unrecognizable at the end. iirc there was some dissent within the production team that couldve been the reason for the shift.

    A lot of people really liked how the story started out, but the last third kinda just kept going downhill, the last straw for many was the whole spacebattle thing that they just kinda shoved in the last few eps. If you're interested, Mother's basement has a decent video looking at what went wrong.
