    Just so you know, a majority of your map markers for the postcards and diaries are numbered incorrectly. I had to track them down by finding the diary names I hadn’t collected yet. Not the end of the world, but you should definitely fix it for future collectible hunters. Otherwise, your descriptions are great and I’ve been using your guide since the beginning of the game.

    I think your marker for Diary 7 is actually the location Diary 8, if you’re counting from the collectibles pause menu.

    someone knows where’s all the Wind chimes locations?, i think if you get all of them maybe trigger a something, perhaps the first scene in the summer chapter, where the screen get white and you see Ana and the wind chime next to him…
