It's a pun. It reads in Japanese along the terms of "The Beast that Shouted
"AI" at the Heart of the World."
The "AI" is written in Katakana IIRC, which either means that it's a foreign
word being phonetically rendered in Japanese, in which case it has the
meaning of the English word "I" or that it is a Japanese word, but meant to
be emphasized, in which case it means "Love."
But yes, it is a Harlan Ellison reference, one that ADV missed when
translating the series it seems...
