The easiest accent is the one you have most exposure to. I don't mean the media, I mean actual native speakers. The people you interact with.

So, who are you speaking to? That gives you your answer.

Most of all, do not forget the key point of learning a new language is its pronunciation and intonation and do not draw too much attention to local accents.

I think it depends on what you're used to listening and seeing. I mean, for example I have a lot of american influence because of the series I watch and the music I listen to...

Hmm, I think it's easier for people to acquire an American sounding accent, as apposed to one of the multitudes of British accents that exist. I'll be honest, I have never heard a foreigner with a convincing accent that can pass as British, and I think it's due to the variances of accents in such a small country. I don't know why, but something in their speech always gives it away.

I think that basically any accent that you choose to learn is equally easy to any other accent you choose to learn. Especially if you get to live among the native speakers.
