For this achievement you need to collect all the notes in the game, which are one of the game's two collectible types. These appear as glowing pages on the ground. When you select story in the main menu, it will show you all the areas you've been to (the first time you press it, it just starts the game, but after that...). On the bottom right hand corner of the picture of each area are spots for two icons.

The one on the left is for normal mode. If you've finished the area on normal difficulty, the outside of the icon becomes a silver blade. If you've gotten all notes AND treasures from that area, the inside is red. If you are missing any of either treasures or notes, the inside is empty.

The one on the right is for hard difficulty. The outside turns gold after you finish the area, the inside turns purple after you get all the treasures AND notes.

You can replay an area at any time, but you lose any progress in whatever area you are in. However, this means they aren't missable as you can return to that area later on. Once you've picked something up and reached a checkpoint (book in the top right corner of screen) it is saved and you can leave the area without finishing it. You can also return to where you were so, let's say...

You finished the Jungle area and the inside isn't red. You can return there, and then when you find something, you can pick it up and then get to the checkpoint, and then quit. Check the icons again and see if it has turned red. If it hasn't you can keep going and look for other stuff. If it is, you don't have to finish the stage and can freely do something else.

These are listed in the order you get them. They are out of order near the end of the game, so yes, that isn't a mistake. The Desert and Dragon Temple areas do not have any notes.

NTW Page 1 - When you enter the room with the game's first floor switch, Ayumi will pick it up during the cutscene, it is impossible to miss.

NTW Page 2 - Right after you encounter the flying face for the first time, you'll find this page in plain view in the middle of the path you are on.

NTW Page 3 - After hitting the switch at the top of the tall room where you first learn to dash to corals, a big gate will open. Right after entering that gate the page will be on the left.

NTW Page 4 - After you reach a big open area and save a human from a bunch of flying creatures, the game will introduce you to the concept of parasites. The game prompts you to shoot the parasites, do so. Dash to the second coral and then jump onto the small island. The page is on that island.

NTW Page 5 - Right after defeating the Gateguard (first boss) face the portal and look to the right for this page.
